eteaket’s first book group meeting
We had our first ever book group meeting last night – thanks to everyone who came along. I’m glad to say we’ve got a real mix of people (including some men) and had fun discussing how we’re going to run the group and what books we’re going to read.
For October’s meeting we’ve given ourselves a choice of two of the books shortlisted for the Man Booker 2009 Prize – The Children’s Book by A S Byatt and The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters. We’re going to experiment with various ways of chosing our reading list for the first few months to see what works for us. Of course, we had plenty of tea and cakes to keep us going. Must say a big thanks to Sara Sheridan for coming along to chat about her new book The Secret Mandarin, which has just been published. We’ll keep you posted on how we get on.
Finally, we’re taking part in the World’ Biggest Coffee Morning tomorrow (Friday) in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We’ll be selling raffle tickets all day for some great prizes, including an eteaket Afternoon Tea for Two voucher, some Missoni goods, a Versace laptop bag and an eteaket gift box. All our tips for the day will also be donated so please pop in (41 Frederick St) and support us. Thanks!
