- 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.
- 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.
- 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
