Hello Book lovers,

**Note the change of meeting location. The Grace Darling Hotel was an enjoyable location for our July meeting so we'll meet there again in August.**

We selected our books for the August 2013 meeting.

"May We Be forgiven" by A.M. Homes
"The Reader" by Bernhard Schlink

If you have time you can read both books, otherwise you can select the book you are most interested in.

The Around Fitzroy & Collingwood Book Club is very informal; there is no set meeting agenda. Over a coffee, beer or wine, we usually have a chat about what everyone thought of the books of the month and see if anyone has read anything else exciting or heard of any great literary events on in Melbourne.

"May We Be forgiven" by A.M. Homes
Harry is a Richard Nixon scholar who leads a quiet, regular life; his brother George is a high-flying TV producer, with a murderous temper.They have been uneasy rivals since childhood.Then one day George loses control so extravagantly that he precipitates Harry into an entirely new life.

"The Reader" by Bernhard Schlink
For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. The woman in question is Hanna, and before long they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused, for Hanna is not all she seems.
