Re: Basel Book Club

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it this month; we've got a family birthday and attendance is apparently not optional! Such a bummer, was really looking forward to a glass of wine and a chat.

Have a great time though, and if someone drops me a msg with the agreed date for March I'll be happy to post it!

Hi all, would really love to join in your Book Club if I may, but I have not read these books except for the one in March, I hope I will see you then!

Cheers people!

Re: Basel Book Club

Hi Vagabond - you'll be welcome. it's not absolutely mandatory that you've read the book to come along - often the chat leads in and out of alleyways that might only slightly be related to the book :-)
