#GLTU11 – Books and Bhoona

2 Dec

As part of this year’s Book Week Scotland, Scottish Book Trust encouraged everyone to organise their own Big Book Bash. GLTU obliged with Books and Bhoona on Friday 29th November – though having reached the giddy heights of 8 possibles, then settled down with 5 on the night, this book bash turned out to be on the small side.

The idea was to enjoy a curry together (which we did at Charcoals on Renfield Street) along with a mystery book swap. Everyone brought a book they had enjoyed, wrapped up with a note as to why they had picked it. At the end of the night we swapped books and everyone went home with something new to read. I’m hoping that we might all feel encouraged, maybe after Christmas, to add our thoughts to those of the donor and produce some reviews for this blog.

The books were:

  1. John Fowles French Lieutenant’s Woman
  2. Michelle Magorian Goodnight Mr Tom
  3. Alberto Manguel The Library at Night
  4. Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
  5. Amy Tan The Bonesetter’s Daughter
