IBG Thursday Meetup - The Assistant - Bernard Malamud

Hi All,

UPDATE!!!!

We have a winner it will be - The Assistant - Bernard  Malamudfrom 

Judging from the voting / feedback, it should be ok to get The Assistant.

Happy reading! :-)

---------------------------------------------

We have a quandry!!

Mark ( thank you Mark :-) ) has very kindly pointed out that the book that we are supposed to be reading for out next Thursday meetup  ( The Assistant by Bernard  Malamud ) is very hard to obtain.

I have checked Foyles, Blackwells and Waterstones and they dont have it. Amazon only has used copies and one is £180!! They also seem to be overseas suppliers....

In a moment of rare democratic inspiration I have therefore decided to leave it up to you, the lovely bookworms, to pick the book that we should read.

The choices are:

The Assistant - Bernard  Malamud

My Year of Meat  - Ruth Ozeki

Please vote, polls will close at midnight Wednesday 04th September.

To vote you need to be in the Home Page for IBG. Go to More and then Polls.

Thank you very much.

Hannah :-)

    Sorry, I won't be able to make it - it's my birthday! Hope the book's worth tracking down though. Will see you at the next meeting.
