Time to update the long list!

It's that time of year when we make a new long list! If you would like to add something to the new list please let me know. We do have a few criteria:
-the book must be able to be read as a stand-alone book. It could be the first part of a set as long as it is self-contained

-it should be less than 400 pages, or easily read in a month by an average busy person ;o) [NB: We made an exception for Infinite Jest as we had two months to read it!]

-it should be easily available and not too expensive (i.e. if it's not in print lots of second hand copies should be easy to find and it should retail at less than £10)

If you'd like something added to the list please reply here or message me. If you want to know what we've read in the past there is a full list over on lj at: http://bibliogoth.livejournal.com/88031.html

Next meeting

So. A very Sad Thing has occurred and our Beloved Pterry has passed away. How would people feel about postponing Octavia Butler for a month and instead reading some Pratchett for the next meeting instead? I'm thinking Soul Music for various reasons but open to suggestions.

Next meeting & Long list

Happy Festive Season everyone :o) Sorry for the delay in posting this - this month we are reading 'The Warrior's Apprentice' by Lois McMaster Bujold [NB: when you buy this it might say it's book 4 in a series - the rule isn't that we can only read the 1st book in a series it's that the book must be standalone. These are sort of like Culture books in that they can be read as standalone novels but are also part of a series. Having read most of the book now it reads fine without having read any others!]

We will be meeting a week later than usual but staying at The Parcel Yard for the month. Please pass the invitation on to anyone who might want to come along.

LONG LIST: As is traditional in this season we have dropped the long list and we will make a new one. If you want to add a book please post it here. The rules are:
- the book must be able to be read as a stand-alone book. It could be the first part of a set as long as it is self-contained
- it should be less than 400 pages, or easily read in a month by an average busy person ;o)
- it should be easily available and not too expensive (i.e. if it's not in print lots of second hand copies should be easy to find and it should retail at less than £10)
