Hello book clubies.

I'm not much of a reader, that's point one. The truth Is I read slow, it's a curse some of us live with, we re-read sentences and paragraphs because it either didn't go in or it just didn't make sense. My theory based on my extensive research, namely me, is that I felt pressure at school to be reading 'big books'. The kid with the most pages, smallest print, least pictures was the cleverest. All sat at a desk reading our chosen book from the school library and proving that I was a 'big book' reader when in reality a picture book would have been what I would have chosen and my English reading lessons consisted of me day dream whilst staring at the book and occasionally turning a page.

Point two I love reading but don't get round to it too often. I don't like too much description, or swearing or sex. Books should come with ratings, the amount I have half read due the above is just as long as my read list.

Point 3, I've not read next months book so I apologise if it has any things from point two. I have However read the first few pages and it amused me. Big tick in my estimation.

Point 4, it's British.

Point 5' I'm british.

Point 6 I present you with "things can only get better: eighteen miserable years in the life of a labour supporter" by John o'Farell

I will post a pic when my laptop charger arrives in the mean time blogger on an iPad sucks.

September Book

My very good friend Melissa has the book choice for this month and she facebooked me to tell me our book would be:

One Second After by William R. Forstchen.

I honestly don't know anything about the book or author, but I'm excited because it sounds all suspenseful and page turner-y.

So hurry and finish Peter Pan if you haven't. And Kathleeny, I know you are busy housing and developing your first born, but please don't forget us lowly book club peeps! (I mean that in an only slightly sarcastic way... I blame all the caffeine going through my system at the moment.)

Alright readers.... READ!
