I can’t believe I started writing this post last June!!! Consequently it’s extremely out of date and basically needs to be rewritten. I even had to alter the title. Both the book groups I belong to used to meet on Wednesdays, one in the afternoon and the other in the evening. The day group now meets on Thursday afternoon once a month. Last week we discussed A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, who also wrote The Kite Runner. Set in Afghanistan over the past forty years it is a novel focusing on the lives of two women, Mariam and Laila, and their struggle for survial during the most horrendous of times. I would highly recommend this one.
We finally have our own library in the town where I live. After sitting there almost ready for quite some time it opened on the first Saturday last May. I have to say I don’t really like the external look but the inside is really lovely. Very light and airy. Having our own library also gives our book groups a place to meet.
