Just a quick reminder that our next meeting will be this Friday, August 4th, at 4pm in Te Aroha Library.  The discussion topic is your book ‘with a number in the title’ – so don’t be L-eight four this one  :D


Happy reading!

A quick reminder that the next book group meeting is this Friday, 4pm at Te Aroha Library.  If you haven’t yet had a chance to watch a DVD from the library collection, or to read a Mystery from our shelves, now is the moment!


Looking forward to some great discussion from you all…


Truly one to die for


Greetings readers!


A cosy group discussed their mysteries here last Friday night, with Lee Child and Dick and Felix Francis getting the Big Book Group Thumbs Up this time round.  And so to August – Friday 4th August, to be precise, at 4pm – where the choice for discussion is a most intriguing category:


“A book with a number in the title”


Truly, one two die four.


Happy reading, and do sing out if you need help finding a suitable book.


All the best –


The Team at Te Aroha Library
