    Hi everyone

    Does anyone fancy doing a proper book club where we all read the same book and then discuss the contents and the character?

    It's something that came up on Westiegirl's diary and it's sparked a bit of interest...

    Not sure how it would work exactly but we could maybe name a book and then take a month to read it before discussing here....?

    Never done any kind of book club before so would be happy for someone to take control and lead the way???

    Anyway, anyone up for it?

    If the book is cheap enough and easy to get hold of I would like to join in, I dont do sloppy romances (mills and boon type) or sci fi...like a good thriller...xx

    I don't have a preferred genre. I usually read crime/thriller types but think that this is the perfect opportunity to expand my repertoire, so to speak.

    Now there seems to be a few of us, maybe we shoud start suggesting titles and dates?
