Silas Marner by George Eliot - 1 Week 'til the Book Club Meeting

Hi All

Happy New Year! Hope you had a great festive period - with the wild fun or peace + rest - whichever you needed! Only a week to go to the 1st meet of the book club of the year next Monday. As I've said the book is pretty short at approx 200 pages and not too difficult to read in a few days.

However I did find it a bit tricky to locate copies in the standard local Waterstones. There were plenty on Amazon but I'd left it too late. No doubt the local libraries have it. I was astounded by how most of the chains now just have a very few shelves of classics - I love modern books too but it's a pity that it was really hard to see anything of the classics except what has been a recent film or TV serial. Anyway the helpful chap at my local Waterstones located some for me in their flagship Piccadilly store - this is the biggest bookshop in Europe, so it ought to have some.

Sure enough the Waterstones in Piccaddilly, just 2 minutes from Piccadilly station, had 30+ copies including the cheap and perfectly good ones from the "Wordsworth Classics" series, priced at a lovely ?1.99.

Hope you will join us next week, starting the year as you mean to go on, by diving in, trying new things, living by the principle that the more you put into life, the more you get out!!

See ya!
