June Meeting

Standard

Present : David, Katie, Margaret, Sharon, Heidi, Beverley, Mary

Apologies : Heather, Vic

Business :

  1. We made the decision that even if a member had only read a little bit of a book they could submit a score. The rationale behind the decision is that inabililty to finish a book is a sort of comment on the lack of enjoyment of it.
  2. Next meeting is at Catherine’s – Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie – and will include the MS Throw the Book quiz. Bring along friends to take part. Entry fee is $5 per person and you’ll also need change to buy answers, etc. If anyone has any unwanted gifts they’d like to donate as prizes, wrap them up and bring them along.
  3. Next Film Club meeting is at Heidi’s on Friday 11th at 7:30pm.

Animal, Vegetable, Mineral by Barbara Kingsolver – Most people agreed with the message of the book but not all liked the delivery of the message. Vic had sent in her comments and score via email which I hadn’t read before the meeting. She said, “I really enjoyed this months book – still reading it as I don’t want to rush through it. I’m enjoying looking up all the websites and all the little “asides” by Barb’s partner. I give it a 3!”

The book scored 2.3
