Oystercatchers, Susan Fletcher

Hi, I have just put this book down. Frankly I was bored, read the end and still did not care. Has any one else read it? It was highly recommended. Guess you cannot please everyone

Birth of venus, Sarah Dunant

Hi, had an excellent evening last night with the Penn Hill bookgroup. We read the Birth of Venus. I think it was the longest discussion we have had so far. This is a real meaty book with lots to discuss. We also downloaded some Reading Group questions that were really in depth and kept us chatting for hours.

So well worth a try!

A Thousand Splendid Suns

I have also just finished this book by Khaled Hosseini, it was brilliant, and I agree I think it was even better than Kite Runner, but is that because I am a woman??
