Looking forward to meeting next week to discuss 'The Time Traveller's Wife'. Would anyone be interested in a book club night out to watch the film??

Definitely! It might make more sense as a film.

I get the feeling this book is going to provoke some strong responses due to the head muddling effect of time travel - once you finish you might be interested in the wikipedia entry on the book.

The best 60 books of the past 60 years. Might give us some ideas for next month... Or start a fight.

We met last night to discuss The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffeneger. Here are the marks out of 10:

Rachel 8
Gerald 8
Xanthe 6
Catherine 6
Total: 28/40

Our next book is Three Cups Of Tea by Greg Mortenson, which we will be discussing on Wednesday 16 September at Rachel and Gerald's.

She really thought it was a 4 ;-)

Hi Bookies,
I'm struggling with 3 cups of team I must admit. Is anyone else? Also I have a slight problem in that I left my copy with my Mum and so it's currently in Liverpool. Does anyone mind if we delay the group meeting by a couple of weeks? Gerald hasn't even started. Can I suggest Thur 1 October instead - sorry!!

I'm only page 20, so I'm happy to postpone until the 1st.
