We read one book a month, supplied free of charge by Lancashire Libraries service from their Book Group collection. These are handed out at the previous month’s meeting. In addition we provide our own copies of classic books chosen by our members to read at a more leisurely pace.
We aim to include all attending members in the discussion, opening the meeting by listening to each member in turn make a brief comment about their likes or dislikes before moving on to look at the book in more depth. We find ourselves reading books we wouldn’t normally choose, some we love, some we hate, some we never finish. Often books disliked by the majority lead to the best discussion. What we all share is a love of reading.
