An Unexpected Retro Meetup!

This months choice is retro. We will be reading Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected.

The choice was bourne out of a long discussion about Roald Dahl. We are breaking one of the rules of bookclub... most of us have already read it! But some 20 - 30 years ago. that is my excuse for my flagrant disregard for the rules & I'm sticking to it ;-)

It also fulfills the demand for something fun.

I have already been reprimanded. I can't find it available for readers. Sorry kindle fans... we're going old school!

Next month's choice will be a vote; so, come along with suggestions of what you'd like to read in August.

There has also been lengthy discussion about whether we continued to use meetup or move to Facebook etc. The decision was (almost) unanimous that meetup is the best forum. The meetup site costs to run. To assist, there will be a change pot on the table when we meet. If you could put some change in, that would be great. The suggested amount is £1. But if that is too much whatever change you can spare.

I suspect that a number of us will be eating, so feel free to join us for dinner!

    Which edition of Roald Dahl are we using. I keep finding that Tales of the Unexpected is out of print. Am I wrong?
