Arrrrgh, pirates! says... "When young Jim Hawkins discovers a treasure map in a pirate’s chest in his parents' inn, he is drawn into a world of danger and adventure. He joins the crew setting sail to the Caribbean to seek out the booty and over the course of the voyage confronts mutiny, murder and the charismatic and devious Long John Silver."

The voting runners-up were An Equal Music, by Vikram Seth, and Helen Garner's The Spare Room.

    Sorry I can't make it this time - something has come up that clashes with this time. Hope to see you at one of the coming groups. All the best, Sally.

    The CBD in the city is a great location. It is easy to get to. The Royal Melbourne hotel in Bourke st is great because it offers the option of eating or just drinks and atmosphere.
