We are an informal friendly group who meet on a monthly basis, usually at the Bradworthy Inn but have also read books which have led us to an outing (which is always good!).
Jamacia Inn by Daphne du Maurier meant a trip to The Jamacia Inn on Bodmin Moor (not as atmospheric as the book!). This year we are planning to read a less known Agatha Christie and visit her house in South Devon.
We have read a real mixture of books, which is great as there have been ones we would not have picked ourselves but actually really enjoyed. We are part of the Devon Library scheme for book clubs. Every year they provide us with a very long list of titles, mostly fiction but also some non-fiction autobiographies, poetry, etc. We then choose twenty-four titles and then are sent one each month.
We meet each month and discuss the book we have just read both the way it is written, the themes and the characters within. We then enjoy scoring the book out of 10 and sometimes have very differing views!
