Welcome to Chichester Readers; a group of people who love books. The general idea is to meet every month or so, all having read the same book and to have a bit of a natter over a glass or two of wine. Marvellous.

Books we have read include:

The Matchmaker of Perigord- Julia Stuart

Night Train to Lisbon- Pascal Mercier

A Room with a View- E. M. Forster

The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit- Sloan Wilson

Small Wars- Sadie Jones

Lolita- Vladimir Nabokov

The Bottle Factory Outing- Beryl Bainbridge

The White Woman on the Green Bicycle- Monique Roffey

The Last Block in Harlem- Christopher Herz

Jamrach’s Menagerie- Carol Birch

The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat- Oliver Sachs

Bones Under the Beach Hut- Simon Brett

Jude the Obscure- Thomas Hardy

The Beautiful and the Damned- F. Scott Fitzgerald 

The Hare with the Amber Eyes- Edmund de Waal

Boiling a Frog – Christopher Brookmyre

The Bees- Carol Ann Duffy

(For a full list of books we have read go to PAGES/WHAT HAVE WE READ?)

The Book Club has some guidelines which we follow or ignore as we choose. The “rules” are as follows:

1st Rule of Book Club: The readers choose the next read in a 'democratic' process 

2nd Rule of Book Club: You may talk about Book Club 

3rd Rule of Book Club: We don't choose a read that any of the readers have already read 

4th Rule of Book Club: Readers bring suggestions for the next read to the Meetup 

5th Rule of Book Club: We're happy to read anything as long as it is in paperback at a reasonable price
