Dear Book Addicts
Happy Christmas from us to you!
We hope you all have a lovely Christmas and of course receive lots of book-y presents!
Just a reminder of what’s going on now and what’s to come in the New Year.
1984 – George Orwell
Into the Wild – Jon Krakauer
Please see the writing contest thread for details – your inspiration this time should be taken from one or more of the photos in the first post
Well it wouldn’t be Christmas without a Christmas banner contest now would it?
General fun and games can be had for all as usual. We don’t close for Christmas and New Year holidays so you can usually find someone around to talk to!
January Book discussions
Interview with a Vampire – Anne Rice
Death on the Nile – Agatha Christie
Veil of Midnight – Lara Adrian (published 30 Dec 2008)
Please beg, steal, buy, borrow, or root around on your bookshelves until you find these books and make sure you are ready to get reading and chatting when the discussions start after the New Year. More details will follow shortly, this is just advance notice.
For everyone who enjoyed reading and writing about their 52 books this year, and everyone who missed out, 2009 brings us even more reading challenges! Go start your own “Reading Challenges” thread in the 2009 Reading Challenges board and let’s get started! You can find more information about 2009 Reading Challenges in the stickied thread in that section.
2009 The Longlist
You can find the books that made it through to our Longlist in the 2009 Book Group board. Not all of the 60 books are going to make it to the shortlist unfortunately but you can still volunteer to host a discussion if you see one of your favourites on the list.
Have a safe and Happy Christmas everyone and we look forward to seeing you over Christmas and in the New Year.
