Relatively new to Bath and noticed a lack of book clubs here, So thought i'd start one myself. A nice nice way for like minded ladies to meet and share their love of literature over a glass of wine (or gin, or beer.....!) It's open to women, all ages, from all walks of life with a shared interest/ love of books!
Once i have an idea of how many people are interested, i can get on with finding a nice cosy venue- some lovely little places tucked away- and a good book to get us started.
If you'd be interested in joining, please let me know!
Great meetup last week; A huge thank you to all who came!
So, this month, we decided to go with a classic. We have chosen:
Great Expectations- by Charles Dickens
It's a favourite of mine and i'm so happy to have a reason to re-read it and cannot wait to talk about it.
I decided to use this one as an experiment for my first ever audio book experience.
I downloaded the "Audible" app, which lets you get books from amazon, straight to your phone.
So far- it's pretty good! Once i got passed the strange voices the narrator seems to adopt, i found i could take the book on long walks, as well as generally getting things done. I'm pretty much permanently immersed in Dickens world!
I highly recommend anyone who hasn't tried audio books to give them a go!
As for the book itself- i'm already a little way in (courtesy of my audio method, i think) and feel a little guilty as the book is a hard slog, as it takes some time to adjust to the language. I probably should have given you all a little more time (sorry!)
Either way, there's no pressure to finish the book.
As always- all welcome (old and newbs!)
I will confirm a venue next week, but in the meantime, happy reading!
