April book club meeting

Hail, reading folk!

There was a good gathering at the March meeting to discuss our ‘one-word titles’, and although everyone enjoyed what they’d read, this month’s Readers’ Recommendation had to be ‘Tu’, by Patricia Grace, a ‘wonderful account of the Maori Battalion in Italy told through the diary of one soldier, Tu’.

Stimulated by the historical flavour of several of our choices last month, we have chosen the category of History (non-fiction) for the April meeting.

The date for everyone's calendars is 6th April, 4pm here at Te Aroha Library.

Happy reading : )


March book club meeting

Greetings, book-lovers book search

 The next book club meeting will be held on Friday 2nd March, 4pm at Te Aroha Library, when we’ll be discussing any book with a one word title.  Think ‘Emma’, ‘Dune’, ‘Dust’, ‘Moonraker’…  A quick wander round the shelves reveals a surprising variety of titles that fit the bill.

Enjoy the hunt, and the right book when you find it!


Book Club Feb 2018

Greetings, book-lovers!

A very Happy New Year to you all.  We hope you had a relaxing break over the holidays. 

The first get-together of Te Aroha Library's book club in 2018, is on Friday February 2nd .  The topic, as you may remember, is ‘Islands’: either a book about an island (or islands), or one with the word ‘island’ in the title.  There’s still time to come and find a book  - and we do have a list of ‘possibles’ in the book group box, if you’re stuck!

See you at 4pm in Te Aroha Library : )

Happy reading!

And a booky New Year!

We hope everyone enjoyed our final meeting for 2017, discussing our forays into alternative realities.  C Tree

Now we’re heading into holidays.  Cue massive tomes by Ken Follett, Jackie Collins etc, and long luxurious afternoons in the shade with a cold drink.  Bliss!  OR… you could get a head-start on your reading for the first meeting of 2018, which will be at Te Aroha Library, 4pm on 2nd February next year!  The topic for this will be ‘Islands’: choose any book about islands, or with the word ‘island/s’ in the title.  There is a handy suggestion list of possible reads at Te Aroha Library, sitting in the Book Group Bucket J

However you choose to spend the summer break, we wish you a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
