September's book is: Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.

We will begin discussion on October 1st, so everyone has a month to read it. I'd love to have a rough idea of how many people will be joining the discussion, so if you want to join in, it would be appreciated if you would reply here. But don't worry, you can still join without replying.

So excited to to discuss Wolf Hall with everybody!

Happy reading,

xx Alyssa

Hi Lotte and welcome to the ABFiles. 

We won't be discussing the book until October 1st.  Maybe you could pick up a copy between now and then.  We'd love to have you in on the discussion. 

Hope you enjoy the site as much as the rest of us do.

Alyssa, count me in.  I'm looking forward to it.

I'm in and I can't wait to have others to talk with about the book. I've only read the first chapter and it's very good. It grabbed me right away.

I would like to join the book club.  I have been meaning to read this book so it will be a good way to get me to do it.

And as a librarian – if you can't afford the book, please go to your local library.  If they don't have it ask one of the librarians to interlibrary loan it for you.

thanks

Do we need to start thinking what book we'll be reading in October to discuss in November so that people can buy it ready?

I suppose you're right, Claire. I can post a topic asking for Oct. book ideas and then you can post a poll, if that works?

How about one of my school books for October??  LOL just kidding … I wish I could join in the fun but if I start to read a book I actually enjoy then I won't read my school books.  Frown

I’d be very happy if we can deside on a book for October, so I can get a hold of it in case I don’t already have it.

I’m picking up my copy of Wolf Hall at the postoffice in 30 minutes and I can’t wait to get started. The weather in Copenhagen today is absolutely crap, so I’ll be inside reading all day with fresh coffee and snacks. Smile

I recently finished Wolf Hall, but am currently listening to the audiobook version – and I can really recommend it, it is a lot easier to follow, as many struggle with the book’s style. The narrator is brilliant as well.

 

If anyone is interested, there is an unabridged version available on iTunes 🙂 Hope that helps someone.
