Although I had decided to abandon all responsibility and just real life in general last night, it seems my resolve has completely failed me and, because I just can’t contain myself any longer I am proud to announce that Literery Relish and the fabulous Simon of Savidge Reads http://savidgereads.wordpress.com/ (I cant figure out how to stick a link on professionally with my iPhone so bare with me !) put our book-obsessed minds together over tea last week and, over the coming month, are putting together the ‘Manchester Book Club’ (a much more dynamic name is in the pipeline I promise)
As you can see from the spanking website Simon has put together, once a month (at a thus far mystery location…) we hope to bring together a group of like-minded, bookwormey Mancs (or, indeed, adoptive Mancs!) who are as desperate to sit around and chat books as we are and who are keen to branch out from the norm. Perhaps picking up a daunting classic you have never had the guts to read or even discovering an entire new genre you didn’t even know existed; out into uncharted waters….
Manchester is a gorgeous, vibrant city but it is seriously lacking in book groups, so much so that, much to Simons surprise, I am a book group virgin! All of you good Northern folk please watch this space as I would love to meet you all in person, be inspired by your own bookish views and thoughts and just have a good old natter really!
Meetings start this April … Have your TBR pile at the ready !
