This year we're going to choose books to read together. Suggest books and themes, vote for your favourite, and discuss it together.

Melanie | 103 comments Sealskin - Bought this last year and it sounds interesting.

Melanie | 103 comments Borrowed Time - This is a book from a very small press in Scotland, essentially run out of the front room of a house in Glasgow. My aim for 2018 is to support more small publishers in Scotland for the work they do finding Scottish authors and publishing works like this.

Great books, guys, how about for March/April groups reads we'll go with the theme 'Fiction' which should cover these :) If they're historically based books, then nominate them here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

I'll keep this book in mind for May/June's group theme which will be 'Crime' - sounds a great book!

I need to read this one Melanie. I'd read - and really enjoyed - some of her books as Jenni Calder, but haven't read any of her fiction as Jenni Daiches. And I applaud your support for small publishers.

I've just finished Natural Causes - what a great twist in the end! Did not see that coming, very intrigued :) We'll definitely nominate it in the either the Mar/April Fiction or May/June Crime group reads as would love to discuss it fully.

Jeanette, hope you enjoy :)
