We will now be discussing Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol", rather than the original plan to read all five of the Christmas stories, given the length of the whole thing. If anyone has the chance to read some of the others, we can discuss those at the end but not necessary.
Below are editions of all the Christmas Stories, but you'll find many cheap ones of just A Christmas Carol.
Want to meet kindred book lovers and make new friends in a local Meetup Book Club? Want some ideas for new books? We read all genres and are purposely inclusive, with the intention of generating lively debate within an eclectic group of people - all faiths, genders and ages welcome. Come to laugh, share stories and make new friends!
We meet on the second Sunday of each month at 5pm (though sometimes we skip a month because of public holidays etc, so keep an eye on the calendar)
Our venue is The Old White Lion pub, right next to East Finchley tube (just turn right as you exit the station and you'll soon see it).
Please have a good look round the pub as we may be sitting anywhere. Look out for copies of the book! Or people with Kindles! Grab a drink from the bar and join in the discussion...
We choose our books for discussion two months in advance, so everyone has time to get and read the book. Therefore, at each meetup, the following month's book has already been chosen but we need to choose the book for two months ahead .
At the end of our discussion on each month's book, we ask attendees for suggestions for books to discuss in two months' time. We then vote, by show of hands, for the book that we'll discuss then.
