“ I enjoy the books that I otherwise perhaps would not think of reading, it is enjoyable to discuss them with the group, and Justin is coming up with more ideas to continue and improve the format of the discussion. I think that the idea of reading a passage each is very good, thank you for leading this group so well, Justin. The only downside for me is the venue; I am not taking to it, sorry. I am happy to look around Trafalgar Square (since I work locally) for a quieter venue if it helps? ”
