Summer Reading


School’s out. Summer fun has begun. The JVT Book Club is continuing through the heat wave. At last month’s session we agreed to try a new voting process. We voted for a number and took the book at that place on a reputed reading list. The chosen title for the month of July is:

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

We’re delighted to have a few new community members join the club.  I’ll be reading from Rhode Island, lazing on a beach. But for those who are in town, the next gathering will be on 31st July. E-mail will be sent to members a few days before with location information. If you don’t receive it, send a message by clicking here and I’ll be sure to contact you with all the details.

>>> And now for August:

Regretfully, I missed out on a lively discussion about ‘The Ocean at the End of the Lane’. Reports from the last meeting almost made me regret leaving Dubai for a trip to America 🙂 Having picked up the novel at JFK, I read this engaging story in almost one sitting – okay, it was a long flight back to Dubai. The next reading will be a crime genre, guaranteed to thrill I would expect from the suggestions that have come through.

In any account, I’ll be reading for our next book club from various cities in Europe – Geneva, Paris and London are on the itinerary. Can’t wait to see you all soon!

Here is the latest poll. Poll closes on Wednesday 7th August.

Vote now and see you all on Wednesday 28th August, 8:15pm!
