Book Group 1

The Book Group reads books for enjoyment. The titles selected mirror our interests but are also chosen to improve the quality and range of our reading.

Our monthly meeting
We meet between 2 and 4 pm on the second Tuesday of each month when a volunteer introduces the "Book of the Month", which is usually a modern novel, but occasionally a classic or non-fiction book. This is followed by a general discussion  which everyone joins in and puts forward their opinions. Ideally we will all have read the book and had time to think about it, but know that this is not always possible and welcome those who come to hear other members' views. After a break for tea, books for future meetings are discussed and chosen by popular agreement.

Current and planned books are shown below

 We obtain most of our books from Maidenhead Library  in batches of ten from their Book Group  Reading Scheme. Hence our membership is now set at 10.
Book list
  Perhaps the best way to get an idea of our Group is to look through this list of some of the books which we have read. Once read we vote for a score out of 10 - the more popular the book the higher the score.
