The Casual Vacancy by J K Rowling

    There was some talk about replacing this book with another, but as many have signed up already (presumably fans of wizards and suchlike) i suggest we plough on with this book for sunny july...

      I've not started reading the book yet, so if everyone wants to change I am ok with that.
