Book club update

I went into WHSmiths to get the book I need for the book club I hope to go to but it wasn't stocked. So I trawled the charity bookshops in the hope that I might strike lucky but no joy. Finally found it in an Independent book shop so I now have the book to read! I have to say reading the blurb on the back it looks really good.

So I emailed the guy organising the group for the time of the group so I am kind of commited to going now and I am looking forward to it. It is not for ages so have lots of time to read the book and think of intelligent things to say!

Plus I got an Adele Parks book called Husbands for £1 in one of the charity shops which I can't wait to read. What a bargain!


  1. Yay for the book club! Glad you decided to do it!

  2. Thank you!

    I am have found out the time so no excuses now!

  3. What book is it?
    Husbands is awesome, I loved it! Hey, guess what? Adele Parks commented on my blog once! How incredibly amazing is that!

  4. That is so exciting! It must feel so surreal to have a message from her!

    The book is 'A Prayer for Owen Meany' by John Irving. On first glance it looks like a book I would never pick up but the first line of the blurb on the back grabs my interest:

    "Eleven-year old Owen Meany, playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire, hits a foul ball and kills his best friend's mother."

    Am looking forward to reading it....may sneak in Husbands first!
