As today is the 1st Thursday in the month, I am off to my book club this morning. And here’s the thing, I haven’t done my homework. Last month, our lovely librarian (we meet in the Central Library) informed us that she would be no longer leading our group, as management felt her time would be better spent on “strategy”, rather than face-to-face with people who love books and actively want to discuss them.
Ludicrous, in my opinion, but there you go.
Our book this month has been Q&A, which you may well know as Slumdog Millionaire, and because I’d read it earlier in the year, I found myself volunteering to lead the group today. And I haven’t prepared properly at all! But why not, you say? Any number of things, really ~ family stuff, being under the weather, The Boy Child being poorly, scrapping, blogging, sleeping … I only have myself to blame!
The people in my group are lovely so I’m sure they’ll understand … wish me luck!
