Our scores are as follows: Plainsong - Kent Haruf - 6The Lady Vanishes - Ethel Lina White - 8.5And then there were none - Agatha … Continue reading 2020 – LBC 3 Reads Scorecard
On Thursday, when chatting with a bestie during our reading night, I was so smug that I was 2 books ahead for two of my book clubs. I could read …Bookclub, Buddies and Brooding I blogged about book club on today’s post from the other me.
We did it! We successfully book clubbed via zoom! And I think we spent pretty much the same proportion of the conversation discussing the book, film adaptations, random unrelated things and in speechless fits of laughter as usual. So that's great! I will attempt to do a write up. Honest. I will!

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 … Continue reading LBC3Reads – Change of Plan
Our beloved #LBC3Reads venue - @Cafe164 - turns 8 years old next month. It's hard to imagine! The cafe and gallery has changed so much over the last few years (while retaining its book club friendly staff and excellent coffee) but I reckon it's the latest addition that's my favourite! The cafe now has its … Continue reading PHOTOS – Cafe 164
