We chose our books for LBC3Reads at the beginning of the year.
By October, we thought/hoped that the political situation in the UK would have stabilised somewhat. However…it…hasn’t.
So, it felt like Philip K Dick’s The Man in the High Castle was just a little too…painful to read at the moment. Ditto Margsaret Atwood’s The Testament – as she notes in the Guardian, as a society we had been moving away from Gilead and now we aren’t.
So for the sake of our sanity, we have decided to amend our next two books. We will come back to these no doubt in the future.
For the 19th of October we will be reading Hagseed by Margaret Atwood. January’s book will be announced after that meeting.
