January Bookclub

Hi girls,

The January book is: Life of Pi by Yann Martel. I can say it's a good read, and good timing with the movie coming out too.

Available:
from Wellington City Libraries
from $16 on trademe
from $20 through MightyApe
from $23 at Whitcoulls

If you want to take the risk - given Christmas delays and the normal 5 week+ timeframe, it's also available through Book Depository (from $13) or Fishpond (from $13).

    Wow looking like this is going to be a big meetup! It'll be a great start to the new year. If anyone who hasn't RSVP'd yet for the Life of Pi Movie on 5 Feb is keen to come along, we need 2 more people to hit the minimum number required for group bookings at Reading! Remember the 6th is Waitangi Day so no worries about staying out late.

    I loved this book too.. Had to trade in my cheapo paperback for a flash hardback because I know I will read it again and again. Here is a link to an interesting interview with Yann Martel on the BBC..

    Looking forward to meeting some other reading fans!
