Single in the City : Review

So ladies, it was an absolute treat having Michele with us tonight at the book club meeting. If you didn't make it the meeting but read the book we'd still love to hear your thoughts! You can comment without registering!

Most of the ladies thought it was a really good read. Did you? We discussed a lot of the different characters and most everyone loved the main character Hannah. Michele also told us about the publishing industry and how difficult it is in this day and age to get published which was really interesting.

Feel free to comment and keep the discussion going as I know Michele would welcome the feedback!

BOOK AID International: Our Charity of Choice

Hi Ladies,

Well it's official we've hit 1000 + members  ... I think it's likely we are London's BIGGEST women's book club! Hooray!

Tonight's meeting was really great with the author Q & A, the book swap and a presentation on our NEW charity of choice BOOK AID. Thanks to Anne who did a short presentation on Book Aid International. We're hoping to host some events over the next couple months to raise fund for this worthwhile charity. Stay tuned!

To Kindle or not to Kindle... thoughts?

I saw a kindle for the first time on Friday and I have to saw I was fairly engaged... I might want one... but then I think to myself.. surely enough of my life is already fixated on a computer screen? ... and then I romanticize the real "once tree" pages of a book and find myself worrying about the future of the paperback...

I just don't know... thoughts?

Recycle your books through Green Metropolis!

It PAYS to go GREEN!

Books can’t be recycled in the same way as newspapers and magazines, however, they can be recycled in a very sustainable way! You simply need to ensure that they stay in circulation by finding them a new home. By doing this you're not only helping the environment, you're also increasing the pleasure a good book can give and doing your bit for charity!
