We will be having a 'blind date with a book' - please bring along a book you have enjoyed to share with someone else.

It should be wrapped and labelled with three points or words to describe it. 

DO include on the inside cover if you would like the book returned at a future meeting. 

DON'T buy a new copy, either bring along your own or a second-hand/charity shop copy.

We will also be voting for our favourite and least favourite book of the year

If you would like to bring a Christmassy sweet/savoury treat to share at this meeting, please do!

  1. Anne this page is great. I’m going to see if I can link it to the Omnibus blog & Uni homepage if you don’t mind.

    Note to others, the couple of books I thought I’d enter for the blind date even though they were not on our monthly read are actually in the lending library, so you might find a copy there.  Also if we don’t want our blind date books back or the ‘gift’ ones ourselves we can donate to the book club lending library afterwards

    1. Hi Karen,

      That's fine, thanks!  I'm planning to delete the table as we don't need it and put in another Christmassy pic but ran out of time last week.


  2. For newer members - the lending library is currently in 10 West, 4.02. If you are interested in some holiday reads come and have a browse!
