Together in Spirit

An online reading group ('TIS a reading group!) to bring together friends, and friends of friends, who aren't able to be in a conventional reading group due to constraints of time or geography.

The alchemist

Sorry, but this is not for me. Maybe I shouldn’t have read the Preface, but after that, 25 pages was more than enough to convince me that life is too short to waste on such drivel. Reminds me of Maya, which doesn’t help and the blurb implies it is in the self help genre, which helps even less. I’ll be interested to see if one of you finds it worthwhile.
Good books read off piste and thoroughly recommended: Border Crossing by Pat Barker; Queen of the tambourine by Jane Gardham.
