Nick (Clevedon)

I am a lover of all thinks 'books'. I am an avid reader and enjoy many different genres - recently I have read books such as: Lonesome Dove, Hamnet, The Gathering, Cuddy and The Turn of the Screw. I am an English Teacher but I'm currently working as a Support Practitioner in Weston College. All of my spare time is spend reading, visiting books shops and Libraries as well as looking for anything book related: book ends, signs and even book marks. I'm hoping to find a book club with like minded people in an informal environment that preferably involves a place surrounded by books.

Chris (Weston-super-Mare)

I love reading and would like to extend my friendship group so a book club seems a good place to start. I like the classics, but also lots of modern stuff too. I’m not usually into non- fiction but have tried a few biographies and am happy to branch out a bit.

Chris recommends:

Miss Buncle’s Book
by DE Stevenson | Buy this book
This was book about a “distressed gentlewoman” who writes a book for money and is then taken aback by the results was written in the 1930’s. The author is an astute observer of people and manners with a very light touch. It is very funny and I love the period detail as well as the humour.

I am 71 years old, retired male, married with 2 grown up children. We have lived in Backwell for 27 years, I have always read widely until recently, (possibly due to my age), and would like to rekindle my interest in literature. Although I enjoy most genres I have a special interest in crime., historical and science fiction.

Derek recommends:

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
The Sun Also Rises
by Ernest Hemingway | Buy this book
Apart from enjoying the authors style, (crisp, sharp and precise), I think he conjures up the atmosphere of the period and location very effectively. It is the kind of book that allows you to lose yourself in the story and characters so that you don't consciously think about what you are reading you just feel immersed in the plot.
