    Hi all,

    The votes are in for The November book club and the winner is Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. The book is around 500 pages, so do get hold of a copy as soon as you can, but I understand it is a fab and gripping read. Thanks for the suggestion last month. :-)

    The last time I read any sci-fi was 1979......that's because I don't like sci-fi. Until I read The Chrysalids, which is amazing, un-putdownable. Can't wait to meet and talk about it!

    The book for this meeting is The Chrysalids by John Wyndham. Any idea why it changed to Weds and the book for November yet? Nicole

      Gutted I can't make this - was expecting it to be the Tuesday, and I'm half-way through (and really enjoying) Chrysalids.

      September 26, 2013

    • Ariane R.

      Sorry matt, but I'm really glad you are enjoying the book.

    Good idea Indranil. Sorry to all for the change from a Tuesday to a Wednesday, but I am working out of town on Tuesday and may not be back in time to host. If back in time I certainly wouldn't have the brain! To all of you wondering.. I've finished the book and couldn't put it down!

    September 25, 2013

  • Indranil

    Shall we set up a vote for the November book? Give people plenty of time to get the book and read it?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
