Choosing the next book for our monthly discussions has proved more difficult than usual in 'the current situation'. Something which will hit the right tone, provide plenty for us to think about, while also being widely available is a bit of a challenge.
We're all finding different things working for us at this time, I think. So perhaps a lighter read might suit? An old favourite, a literary classic, or something from childhood might be soothing? Or crime and mysteries can keep us turning the pages, sucking us into trying to solve the problem if our concentration is lacking? Personally I'm not inclined to read any post-apocalyptic, science fiction or imagined futures at the moment, but these books are still selling well!
Whatever we choose for book group, or our own personal reading, can I urge you to consider purchasing from an independent bookshop? Many are now doing mail order and prices and delivery times are comparable with the big internet provider. Browsers Bookshop in Woodbridge will be very glad of your support! And do sign up for the weekly update from Browsers regarding deliveries and new titles just released. You can do that by clicking here.
