We meet once a month (either the first tuesday or wednesday of the month) at one of the members houses. Hosting book club is entirely voluntary, however the host does get to choose the following months book. We discuss the book we've been reading, we discuss other books we've read, we discuss films, television, the weather, our families etc etc and generally have a lovely time. There are currently about 60 members of our book club although many of them are not active, and we have between 8-12 people at most meetings. We read a vaiety of book and over the last 18 months since we started these have included classics, family dramas, international fiction, childrens books, scifi and all sorts of others. Not all our members have time to read all the books as most of us work and many of us have family committments too.
