The Bone Clocks

We had a long discussion session of group therapy about Edith’s diary, daydreaming and being stuck in domestic hell.

we read Edith's Diary

Don’t tell Edith we read her diary

Cheerful book for next time is The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell cheerful runners up included A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson, Essays in Love by Alain de Bolton, A Fortunate Life by AB Facey, Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Stout, Cannery Row by John Steinbeck, If on a Winter’s night a Traveler by Ialio Calvino and the Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.

Next meeting is on 23rd of June in the Efra Social, from 7pm. Just remember to vote in the referendum beforehand.


Big in Japan

Lovely to see a big crowd of people at last night’s meeting. Sorry if the filming was a little bit unexpected, once we’ve got a copy of the documentary we’ll have an official premiere / drink in the pub to celebrate. Thank you to everyone who took part.

Perhaps unsurprisingly given that Japanese state TV were filming us for a programme about the author, we were all quite positive about When we were Orphans.

Book for next time is The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet and as this is a long and particularly brilliant book, the next meeting will be in 4 weeks time on the 31st of March in Mango Landin as usual.

As the night drew on, Pete realised he didn’t know how to draw magnifying glasses properly.

Runners up in no particular order were: The Count of Monte Cristo, The Good Terrorist, Tokyo Year Zero, What Is the What, Waiting for Columbus, The Idiot and A History Of The World In 10 1/2 Chapters.

Also as a bonus book we had a load of copies of Witness the Night donated by the publisher Beautiful Books for us to read – I’ll post up a review and some info, and if everyone can add a review that would be super.
