The book for next time is Grimm’s Fairy Tales – as there seem to be numerous versions of this it might make it interesting to see what people bring, although the official version we’re reading is the Penguin Classics version.
Next meeting is on the 13th of May in Mango Landin. Practically summer.
Runners up were:
Vile Bodies – Evelyn Waugh
War and Peace – Tolstoy
Lord of the Flies – Wiliam Golding
The Road Home – Rose Tremain
The Book Thief
Tortilla Flat – John Steinbeck
and I wrote something in my book about the beard song which doesn’t make sense any more.
