..and for 2009

Looking further back to 2009 our choices were:
  • Did we meet in January?
  • Wendell Berry 'Hannah Coulter'
  • Wm Paul Young 'The Shack'
  • Jack Drummond 'Avalanche'
  • Chris Cleave 'the other hand'
  • Gao Xingjian 'Soul Mountain'
  • (July) G K Chesterton 'The Man Who was Thursday'
  • (Sept) Marianne Fredriksson 'Hanna daughters'
  • Jodi Picoult 'My Sister's Keeper'
  • Danny Scheinmann 'Random Acts of Heroic Love'
  • Maile Meloy 'Liars and Saints'
As before there's teasers from all these in my more-or-less weekly posts here but you will need to scroll down a bit!

BATS books in the last year

The approaching of the need to produce an annual statement on what we've done in the book group over the past year, causes this blog to spring back into life (and I'm hoping to keep it going!).
So in 2010 we read the following:
  • Kate Summerscale 'The Suspicions of Mr Whicher: or, the Murder at Road Hill House'
  • Hans Fallada 'Alone in Berlin'
  • Marilynne Robinson 'Gilead'
  • Elizabeth Gaskell 'North and South'
  • C J Sansom 'Dissolution'
  • (July) Sebastian Barry 'The Secret Scripture'
  • (September) Kathryn Stockett 'The Help'
  • Marguerite van Geldermalsen 'Married to a Bedouin'
  • Anne Tyler 'Noah's Compass'
  • Sebastian Faulks 'A Week in December'
I don't think we met in August...but there's a good range of books there - they are chosen, in rotation, by members of the group. There's teasers from all these in my more-or-less weekly posts here.
