What we're about

If you like books and live in Ormskirk or the surrounding areas, this is the club for you. The book club has run successfully for over two years and is for ladies who enjoy reading, talking and the occasional drink!
Members take it in turns to choose our monthly read and cover a mix of genres and views (and laugh a lot). Feel free to join and ask any questions.

Sarah’s Choice-Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie

Location visible to members

***** Please read. Important news about fees **** This won the women’s prize for fiction in 2018 and is a look at what life might be like for some Muslims in the UK. I read this last year and this it resonates with some views currently shared in the news!! As always, the lady whose book we are discussing will pay the fees for the meet up group for that month. Sadly, we may need to look at group fees as the subscription for the next 6 months has increased again, last time I just accepted this and paid more to keep the fee as £10 which means I would have to pay almost £30 extra now (every 6 months) and I hope you can understand that this is something that I don’t want to do. I had an email to say the fees have been taken, so we have 6 months to decide what to do! I am not sure what the solution is, but if we can bring any ideas? For now, I will have to put the fees up to £15 (in line with the payment) but feel this is a lot. Sorry, but we’ll make a group decision 😢. We will try to do books two months in advance to help people to order them from the library. Kathryn will be picking July’s novel. Please bring any suggestions for the future! Anyone who would like to take part in a ‘book swap’, please bring any unwanted (don’t give away your favourites) or recommendations and we’ll trial the idea. Please only bring previous book club books if they have been requested! See you soon and happy reading! Charlotte x

Hi Everyone, Sorry I have missed the last couple of meetings! I will be back with you all in June. Sorry this is a little late too, I am sure you will have time to order it from the library if needed. I am really looking forward to reading this book, I have always been intrigued by The Princes in Tower Legend and I loved Shakespeare’s Richard III 😁 As always, the lady whose book we are discussing will pay the fees for the meet up group for that month. Sadly, we may need to look at group fees as the subscription for the next 6 months has increased again, last time I just accepted this and paid more to keep the fee as £10 which means I would have to pay almost £30 extra now (every 6 months) and I hope you can understand that this is something that I don’t want to do.

We will try to do books two months in advance to help people to order them from the library. I forgot to ask Sarah who was picking the next book, but as long as someone is we’ll be fine 😁 Anyone who would like to take part in a ‘book swap’, please bring any unwanted (don’t give away your favourites) or recommendations and we’ll trial the idea.
