What we're about

As the name of the group suggests we love to read. This is about the enjoyment of reading, no one in this group should feel obliged to read EVERY book EVERY month. We all lead busy lives. We are an easy going bunch. Come and make some new friends, share a laugh, have a few drinks, have something to eat, talk about all types of topics & generally just have a good time.
Stuff you might like to know:
•Member ages range from 18 upwards! Everyone’s welcome!
•Books are recommended by members via e-mail or at the meetup.
•The recommendation list consists of 20 to 30 books. When new books are recommended, the oldest ones are removed from the list.
•You can vote for the book you want to read at the meetup, or alternatively via email. The day after the meetup, all votes are counted & the 2 books with the most amount of votes will be posted on the website.
•Votes accumulate: if you voted for a certain book but it didn't get enough votes to be one of this month's favourites, the votes still stand. When new votes for that book come in next month, it might be one of the two with the most total votes, hence one we're going to read!
•The €1 payable per meeting attended is not compulsory; fees are used for the upkeep of the site.
•Details & a map for the venue can be found via the link supplied under the WHERE heading on the webpage.

The Dublin Book Club Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

The Bleeding Horse

€1.00

Hi there, here are the two books for the September 17th meetup. And remember, you don't have to read both books! Enjoy, and see you on the 17th August! Note: If these books are difficult to find in bookshops, try online (e.g.: Amazon.co.uk, kennys.ie, easons.com, bookdepository.com to name a few). AS THIS GROUP DOES NOT TAKE ONLINE PAYMENTS, EVERYONE WILL SHOW AS 'UNPAID'. PLEASE IGNORE. 1. Beatlebone - Kevin Barry A novel of family, ghosts, love, music and the quest for truth, Beatlebone recounts a wild journey through the west of Ireland in 1978. At its helm is John, a maddened genius fleeing fame and seeking peace. With his deadpan Irish driver, Cornelius, at his side, John is hellbent on reaching the Island of Dorinish, an assignment he arranged ten years before. Lyrical, freewheeling, quixotic and fun, Beatlebone is a sad and beautiful comedy. 2. The North Water - Ian McGuire A ship sets sail with a killer on board . . .1859. A man joins a whaling ship bound for the Arctic Circle. Having left the British Army with his reputation in tatters, Patrick Sumner has little option but to accept the position of ship's surgeon on this ill-fated voyage. But when, deep into the journey, a cabin boy is discovered brutally killed, Sumner finds himself forced to act. Soon he will face an evil even greater than he had encountered at the siege of Delhi, in the shape of Henry Drax: harpooner, murderer, monster . . . Séamus
