Live Better With Cancer Community Book Club
I was wondering if anyone would like to join in with a new Book Club right here in our community?
Being a very avid reader, always with a book on the go, I thought it would be great fun to start our own book club.
The idea would be to have a book a month, (to give everyone a chance to read it, we all read at different speeds ). If it turns out we are all super fast readers we can change the book sooner. Then as we have read them we can chat about what we think about them, etc. Just for fun mind you, there won't be any requirement to do a book review like in school homework!!😀
Hands up if you are interested!🙋♀️😀
I have put below a list of possibilities to start us off with, if you are interested, please post which title, and I will count up the votes, and the book with most votes will be our first. I have included some of the 'blurbs' to give an idea of what the books are about.
It will be great to start this next week so the vote will be open until Saturday 29 February.
Looking forward to hearing what you think.
