Yesterday I went to the first meeting of a book club in Le Dorat. It is the brainchild of a lady called Michelle who seems to be great fun apart from the fact that she doesn't like Lance Armstrong or his book, which I have to say was one of the most inspirational books I have ever read. Anyway, I won't hold that against her, well, not too much!
She organised the book club to broaden her reading material and to meet other people. Eleven women turned up yesterday afternoon (I am sure that I will remember their names eventually) and we all had the same reason for going. The first book we are going to read is The Bridges of Madison County. I haven't read it before or seen the film. I started it last night and so far it seems easy to read and interesting.
The books are being chosen by group members and books have been selected for the next two months. I am trying to decided which book to choose when it comes to my turn. At the moment I am torn between The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy (OH thinks it might be too long a book to read in a month) or the aforementioned Lance Armstrong book.
The group is being held at a great cafe/gift shop in Le Dorat called La Maison Bleue. It does wonderful lunches and afternoons teas and has a fabulous selection of gifts to buy. I love being in there, it has a warm atmosphere and is very comfortable to be in, of course I always find a little something to buy after my lunch!
