A Reading Community

I have always wanted to feel a part of a close community.  Chelmsford is a big town so this is something I am unlikely to achieve whilst living here.  Instead I have opted to become a part of a community of a different kind, a few months ago I started up a book group.  We met Monday evening for our third meeting.

I am really enoying it so far, learning about these new people of whom I have never crossed paths with before, it also gives me a reason to read books I wouldn't otherwise pick up.  And I will be honest I love a good natter so it's a great opportunity to have a good chat and discuss the book, sharing opinions etc. with the rest of the group.  Not only this but it gives me something to do on my daily commute to and from work.  People on the trains can be so miserable, it is very rare that you can ever get a conversation out of anyone, so if you can't beat them join them.

I'm looking forward to reading this months book, it sounds very interesting, only time will tell, I guess I will just have to read it to find out.

August's Book Choice.

I will let you know what I think once I have read it.
