The Swindon IVC book club is a sub-group for members of Swindon IVC. The bookclub meets about once every 6 to 8 weeks at different venues, often in people's houses. A theme/genre is chosen and then a book (or two) is picked for that month. Very informal and sociable so, if you like talking about books, having a good discussion, and meeting up over a drink and some nibbles, why not come along?
Zoe hosted the last meeting at the Bayberry where we enjoyed food & drink and reviewed "Siddhartha" by Herman Hesse. Feelings about Siddhartha by Herman Hesse were very lukewarm. People generally didn’t like the main character and felt his search was selfish and all about himself with little regard for anyone else, which diminished any message that was being put forward by the book. Overall score was 4.5/10
The current read is The Year of Living Danishly by Helen Russell. it is said o be an easy read about one British family’s experience of living in Denmark for a year.
The next club meeting will be on Friday 16th March, hosted by Richard & Penny. As usual please bring a contribution to the buffet either Sweet or Savoury. If it is Danish inspired then it will all help us create our own little bit of “Hygge”
New members are very welcome but should contact the host in advance so they get included on the time and other last minute details of the next meeting
The bookclub has set up its own YahooGroups list to aid communication - currently administered by Richard S - please ask if you would like to be added.
