Richard & Judy Book Club 2008

Recommended Posts

The new books have been announced ,& I am so excited to read them.


I am a real book worm & the R&J book club has got me reading some books I would have never otherwise picked up, & a few have become big favourites of mine, like 'The Girls', 'The Memory keepers Daughter','The Time Travellers Wife' ,The Death & Life of Charlie St Cloud'& the truly wonderful 'This Book Will Save Your Life'


Here is a link to the books on Amazon - happy reading! :P:P:P

'the time travellers wife' made me laugh out loud and cry like a baby. I didn't want the book to ever end.


I couldn't get on with 'The Girls' which was a real shame as I was really looking forward to it.


I didn't realise 'the Memory Keeper's daughter' was on their list. I finished it about 2 weeks ago and found it a really engaging read.


I've had 'this book will save your life' on my shelf for a few months, ready to pick up.


I love their book club - there really is something for everybody. I have always been an avid reader, but often turn to their lists for inspiration. It was through them that I found 'the lovely bones' and 'notes on a scandal' - both excellent. It has always been a running joke with the removal men whenever I have moved (which has been quite often) about the number of boxes of books I have!

I've read several of them (without realising until you said that they were R&J recommendations - not that that would put me off!) and enjoyed them immensely.


Can I recommend that you use www.greenmetropolis.co.uk which is a site for buying and selling secondhand books (mainly recent paperback fiction) You receive £3 for each book you sell and buy for £3.75. It's a good way of making some money back on books!


I'm off there now to find some of the books you mention that I haven't read!

I am currently reading 'A thousand splendid suns' by Khaled Hossini .........just started it last night.

it is absolutely amazing, & looks like it will be the sort of book that stays with me for a long time,like 'Memoirs of a Geisha' & 'The Red Tent'


I would urge any readers out there to give it a go :P8)

Jo, thanks for that link. I have a lot of books that I want to get rid of ............well, I don't really want to get rid of them, but I've got to declutter, so I've decided that they really must go. I'll check it out with a view to selling some of my books on :wink: .


Sarah, I watched R&J this week when they were talking about the Khalid Hossein book and it really made me want to read it. Great to hear that you recommend it, I'll be looking out for that one :D
