Hi everyone,

Nice to see a couple of new members last night - and we were especially lucky to have a Bombay native in attendance on the month we were doing Shantaram!

We picked the next 4 books; a few of the regulars weren't there so hopefully you're okay with the selections, it seems like we've got a good mix again.

Books are listed below, and as always, newcomers are always welcome! (And we're easy to find - we'll be sitting upstairs on the mezzanine with lots of books on the table!)

Hope those on holiday have had a great time and look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!

Book Selections
October: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
November: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
December: The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner
January: The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri

Hi I was wondering if this book club was still going on? I'd love to join if it's still possible?
