any ideas what people would like for april to read as the groups book

Chris Stanley (christinelstanley) | 206 comments I'm interested in Apartment 16 by Adam Nevill, but I won't be offended if nobody else wants to read it, it looks a bit scary!

maybe we could do april being biography month for the read as march book is a thriller as trying to have a different theme/genre each month so then it increases each members reading experience :)

Chris Stanley (christinelstanley) | 206 comments I'm not a fan of biographies, but I think Stephen Fry's The Fry Chronicles would be fun

well thats still a bio

JackieB | 123 comments I like the idea of having a theme for each month, I tend to get stuck on a particular genre for ages, and it'd be good to have something to encourage me to try new things.

so if we agree biographies the theme for april nominate your titles by 11th march so then people can vote then by the closing date 31st march :)

Sorry, a bit vague there - it is friday, and my thoughts are on the sausage and mash I'm having for tea tonight !

I meant The Fry Chronicles as my bio nomination for april

Booksdingle | 186 comments differnt genres each month is a good idea yes...and then maybe a potluck somewhere along the line! Off to find suitable bio to suggest.......


message 11: by Booksdingle (new)

Booksdingle | 186 comments well I can't find one...gave up on page 8 on Amazon...no one grabbing me...that may be the only problem with bios, that it could be very personal to each voter so may not get more than one vote on any....that said I expect that Stephen Fry's would be fairly entertaining and enlightening.

well was thinking of nominating sarah brown's new book behind the black door


message 13: by Booksdingle (new)

Booksdingle | 186 comments I'll go for an old one that I really should read....which is now on my currently reading list....Lucky Man by Michael J Fox, which is mainly about him being diagnosed with Parkinsons disease at an early age and presumably how he is living with/overcoming it.

I would like to read this one too if I can find a copy.

Booksdingle | 186 comments I think the library would have it or RISI, actually I started it and can't put it down so quite a way through....I'd be happy to swap something with you for this book once I have finshed it if you like Lady Lavender

Angela (bookangel2) | 163 comments Thanks Steve; I'll be able to borrow it from my daughter, I think!

Chris Stanley (christinelstanley) | 206 comments I'm "gonna do" this one on "audio" for a change. I have the attention span of a guppy right now and I'm hoping audio will enable me to to enjoy my books still.
