I've finally taken the plunge and done something I've been thinking of for a long time. Before we moved to Wimbledon, I used to belong to a lovely little book club. I loved our intimate discussions, sharing reading experiences and seeing novels through the eyes of others. It forced me to read more and to read more wider, often selecting titles that I might not have chosen for myself. But when we moved it became more difficult and eventually, as members moved on with their lives, changing jobs, moving house, having children, it became harder and harder to get the group together. Wimbledon town has a thriving and lively book club, which I look on with envy at times, but somehow I find the sheer number of members - several hundred I think - intimidating, hankering after the friendships fostered in previous experiences. So I'm trying to establish a fledging reading club in Wimbledon Village, to complement rather than compete with the existing clubs. I have big plans (when don't I?) but it's early days and the first task is to find some other like minded people who would also like to meet up occasionally, over food or drinks, to share their perspectives on the books they read. If you think this sounds like you, hop over to the club's pages on meetup.com and sign up: Wimbledon Village Reading and Book Group. Whether you just want to come and enjoy the chat, or whether you'd like to be part of the planning of the group, you'll be equally welcome.
