      Adelaide Hills Book Group

      Hi

      i would be interested in starting up a book group that meets in the Hills. I had a great group in the UK and wound live to join one here too! I was thinking more of a chatty, social group rather than intensely debating the book so if it sounds like something you would be interested in then give me a shout 😀
      Lazy Cow and snifter like this.

      Hello and welcome to the forum. Great idea.

      I'm part of a book club here and enjoy it when I make it along. Alas not often enough as its usually on a Friday and we are always busy with kids sports clubs that night.

      Hi Cherryripe,
      I'm interested, depending where you are in the Hills, what time, night etc. It might be nice to see if my brain still works, but in a relaxed environment where we're not (necessarily) analysing each and every word!

      Thanks for replying �� I've been a browser for a while and finally took the plunge to post!
      I'm near Hahndorf but happy to drive a bit so depending on where you are we can meet in the middle somewhere. We could arrange a night that suits us both and then see who else is able to come along. Prob Mon, Wed or Thur nights would be best for me. I was thinking around 7pm but flexible on time. What do you think? ��

      Glad you decided to join

      Those nights I'd be interested in, though other family members have things on some of those nights. But I'd try to make it along if I could.

      I don't mind a drive up out Hahndorf way. Its not hard to get to from where we live. Even to meet in a pub or some such somewhere there or somewhere in between in one of the hills small towns.

      The book club I am part of meets near the city most months, usually at someones house and we take it in turn to provide the nibbles, one makes savoury, the other sweet. We have a good crowd, about 10 of us now if we all are able to rock up. We all know in other from before the book club started, or knew some of the others at least so it wasn't we were all strangers meeting for the first time.

      Handy thing is the library have a huge list of book club books and you can order the number of copies you want from the list and have them for the time. I think there was something like 5 pages of A4 list wise. So don't have to go buy a copy or borrow your own from a library.

      We will be moving up to our house in Hahndorf later in the year, probably November. Never been in a book club before but do read a lot so would be interested. Would be nice to meet people up in the hills. Mind you have a visit to the UK and refurbishment to do before we move so may not have much time for reading!
      Not a morning person!

      Depending on where you settle on meeting I'd quite enjoy joining in; Hahndorf is about an hour's drive through the hills for me, and I definitely couldn't do Tuesdays.... So I'll watch this thread with interest and see.

      Great ideas about the library sets Snifter I didn't realise that they did that! I'm glad that there is some interest so let's see if we can get a time and place decided �� How about 7pm on a Wednesday evening at The Haus in Hahndorf? Would that suit everyone? I'm happy to do a Thursday if that suits more!

      Where would be an easier place for you Flossybeth? We could alternate meeting places so that you don't have to drive so far ��
