(and about time too!)
The book group has gone for purchasing our own books with the hope that in time we can combine with other local book groups with some sort of rotation of stock. So at the moment one member each month buys around a dozen identical books (ideally, though not essentially, using a waterstones 3 for 2 offer) which we read and then the buyer retains them hoping that other local groups might want to use our copy and we could organise a swap.
Syvia bought this month's book and I'm inthe process of organising the book for June.
