having just moved to Exeter I need to make new friends.....would anyone like to join me for a book club involving meeting once a month in a pub (weatherspoons in town?) to maybe read a book that we all choose or talk about books we've read and drink several glasses of wine, beer etc

Hi all!
Hope you're feeling better Katekitkat, not a fun thing to have.

I started reading The Help and so far I'm really enjoying it, not too far in but already quite engrossed smile

katekitkat Wed 29-Feb-12 11:51:07

Hi all,

Much better now thank you. Did you have a nice evening? any plans to meet up again? I have already read The Help and I thought it was amazing.

E4EM Sun 04-Mar-12 20:55:08

Hi all,

I've just finished reading the book and loved it! Brilliant book. Looking forward to getting together to chat about it. We didn't make any plans to meet up Katekitkat, but said we would read The Help then meet up again.

Glad to hear you're feeling better.

Think I'm going to have to give book club a miss, i've hardly started reading it and my degree is taking over. I'm going to get to the end of the book though, who knows how long that will take me at the moment though! smile

Hi Theyda, lots of luck with your degree, sorry to have missed you the first time!

E4M and Bbiscuits, are you still up for another meeting? how are you finding The Help?

Elvis44 Tue 20-Mar-12 07:24:52

Hi everyone? Is it too late to join your book club? I've always fancied joining one and with three of my close friends leaving the Exeter area would be great to meet some new people!

jjemma1 Wed 16-May-12 13:23:47

Does the book club/few glass of wine evening still happen?

would like to come along

katekitkat Thu 17-May-12 13:02:27

Hi jjemma1, nothing further happened with the book club but if you see the exeter mums thread I have suggeste meeting up next Monday morning?

NMM Thu 31-May-12 00:05:18

Should we give this another shot? I've just finished The Help, coincidentally...or can anyone suggest another book?

Elvis44 Fri 01-Jun-12 11:00:57

Hi,
I'd be interested in coming along! Don't mind what the first book is, am happy to meet up and then decide on one?

jjemma1 Tue 05-Jun-12 21:17:51

I'm up for meeting up, let me know when & where

Elvis44 Mon 11-Jun-12 08:37:25

jjemma1 and NMM - shall we start this off? When is good for you and any preferred locations? Can't do Tuesday or Friday evenings but otherwise fairly flexible.... Are we thinking of say meeting for an hour after kids are in bed? Or would something else work better for you?

NMM Mon 11-Jun-12 10:53:21

Let's do it! How about a Monday (DH works away Tue- Thur). Is central Exeter easiest for everyone?

jjemma1 Mon 11-Jun-12 19:56:57

Im game
Monday after 7pm in central Exeter is fine with me xx

Elvis44 Wed 13-Jun-12 10:18:54

Ooh I can do after 7 on a Monday in central Exeter too! smile How about Monday 25th? But where? Any suggestions?

NMM Wed 13-Jun-12 23:59:25

Jemma & I met at the NCT group yesterday and we came up with Mon 25th too! How about Wetherspoons on South St? 7.30-8ish?

Elvis44 Thu 14-Jun-12 08:32:17

Sounds great! Will aim to be there around 745. How will I recognise both of you? wink

NMM Tue 19-Jun-12 13:33:34

Elvis - sorry for late reply. We are away with grandparents this week.
Shall I bring a book along and leave it on the table we're at?

jjemma1 Tue 19-Jun-12 13:35:03

Its a date Monday 25th 7.30 ish - love it
What book shall we bring to look pretty on the table next to the glass of wine?

Elvis44 Wed 20-Jun-12 21:25:29

If u put a book on your table (as eye-catching as possible), I'll also come in carrying a book so you can both look out for me too! I'll just bring a current book so if I can't find you, I'll have something to read while I drink alone!!
Really looking forward to it and meeting you both! Will be the first time I'll have ever introduced myself as Elvis....?! wink

NMM Wed 20-Jun-12 23:24:18

Really looking forward to it too. Don't judge me by my book! - it'll probably be some airport trashy read that I grab on the way out the door <makes mental note to dust off 'War and Peace' over the weekend>...

Cactus76 Thu 21-Jun-12 10:59:45

Hi All,

I briefly introduced myself over on the Exeter mums thread. NMM has kindly suggested that I pop along on Monday too which would be lovely. I just need to sort out some baby feeding logistics.... Hopefully see you all there. I too will carry a book with me (something deeply intellectual, of course) smile

jjemma1 Thu 28-Jun-12 14:19:54

Had a lovely time on monday, both boys were sound asleep on when i got home !! What do you thinkabout making it a regular meeting? once a month the last monday of the month?

NMM Thu 28-Jun-12 19:41:13

Count me in! Shall we actually try to talk about books next time (equally happy to rename it Wine Club though!) grin
