2018 Annual Report: View
I took over the running of this group in February this year with only two others in the group. We originally met at Damson Tree Cafe on Fountains Road but now meet at Plumcake Cafe in Bramhall precinct, which is convenient for everyone and parking is easy on a Monday morning (now 30p for one hour.) We have read some very interesting books, and some not so interesting. Everyone has a say in choosing or recommending the books we read and our discussions can be quite lively. We buy our own tea, coffee or cakes - which I must say are delicious. Although I think eight members is the right number for this group, owing to the logistics of the cafe having to rearrange the tables and chairs, I could perhaps take one more person, as not everyone can come every month.
This group was started a year ago in response in to demand for a second group and meets once a month in a local café , who were keen to host a book group. The café serves excellent cake and is relatively quiet at the beginning of the week so we have chosen Tuesday afternoon for our meetings. Members have each chosen a book , and we are working through the list with one book discussed each month . So far we have all discovered some new authors and our discussion often leads on to a wider discussion of the topic. We also share our thoughts on other books we are reading or have read. This second group is now full but a third group has now been formed.
