Dear all

Thanks to everybody who made it last night to our September Meetup.

October's Meetup is scheduled for the 20th, at 8pm. If you have any suggestions for a venue, please let me know. The book will be Georges Perec's 'Life: A User's Manual' which is available in English from www.amazon.fr, and widely available in the original French as 'La Vie: Mode d'emploi'.

I'm going to run another poll to select November's book, so please email me directly with any suggestions by Monday. The poll will then run for a week, so anybody wanting to get cracking on November's book has an early start.

Finally, Ganit's group last night made a note of some favourite books from the last month, which I promised to share:
The fade ? Darren Smith
The Yacoubian Building - Alaa Al Aswany
The bookseller of Kabul - Asne Seierstad
The white queen ? Philippa Gregory
Reading Jane Austen in Baghdad (or is it : Talking about Jane
Austen in Baghdad?)
Blindness - Jos? Saramago
The remains of the day - Kazuo Ishiguro (as well as ?Never let
me go? by the same autor)
Play it as it lays - Joan Didion
The solitude of prime numbers - Paolo Giordano
Arlington Park - Rachel Cusk

Happy reading everybody, and I hope to see you on October 20th.

Best wishes,
