Three birthdays were celebrated on Thursday evening: Kathleen, Rob and Sarah’s. So. the lovely evening (which K&R hosted) was topped off with a gorgeous chocolate cake.
Our next book evening will be hosted by Christine. And the book we will be reading is a collection of short stories: This Isn’t The Sort of Thing Happens to Someone Like You by Jon McGregor. Like Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Feverpitch and We Need to Talk About Kevin before, it was apparently one those books where you look round the Tube carriage and everyone’s engrossed. No paperback edition available. Kobo and Kindle versions available but no iBooks.
The other suggestions were:
Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
A Week In December by Sebastian Faulks
Solar by Ian McEwan
The National Theatre Frankenstein showings at Cineworld MK’s details are here. Non-Cineworld cinemas also will be broadcasting the feed but this is probably the closest one to Bedford.
Finally, another GOSH bags evening is on the horizon. Date and venue tbc.
