May meeting report

Dear Readers,

For those of you who were unable to attend today, I announced my retirement from this reading group. I will continue until we have finished discussing our present novel, “The Book Thief”.

There are various reasons for this decision: partly my health but mainly because I feel it is time for me to move on and do other things. It has been a most enjoyable journey through English literature with all of you.

Our next meeting will be June 27th, and we will discuss from Part 6 “Death’s Diary: Cologne” (p. 334 in the version we are using).

I hope to see you again at the end of June.

May meeting

After a 2-month hiatus, our May meeting will take place on May 23rd at the usual time and place. I look forward to seeing you there.


We’ll be reading and discussing from “The Whistler and the Shoes” (Part 5, p. 284).

I’m blogging about writers talking about writing over on my other blog, “Accurate Maps“. I also took up a challenge – to write 1,000 words minimum every day on my blog, and to read 1 short story, 1 poem and 1 essay a day. You can read more here.
