Marianne (cloggiedownunder) | 8150 comments For those interested in coming along to our next get together, please put your names down in this thread, and we will advise you with details of the venue once the numbers are confirmed.

Date - Saturday, 8th September 2018
Time - 11.00am for coffee followed by lunch
Location - Newcastle City (in fairness to our intrepid travelling moderator :) )
RSVP - Friday 31st August 2018

Also, because the Mystery Book Swap was successful, we thought it might be fun to do it again.

Mystery Book Swap

1. Bring along one book to the venue to give away – preferably a new book or a book in excellent condition.

2. Wrap the book in whatever paper you have at home.

3. Place a tag on the wrapping with the description of the genre.

4. Each participants name will be placed in a hat, and when your name is drawn, you can select a mystery book from the pile.

Join us for a great few hours chatting books (among other things!)
