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.

A suggestion

Hi. If anyone wants to go ahead and read the Pat Barker, they're more than welcome (and Val has a spare copy). But she suggests that those of us short of reading time may wish to give it a miss and read something else instead. I'm happy to fall in with that, being extremely short of reading time, and wonder if the rest of you might like to join me in "Sunset Song" by Lewis Grassic Gibbon. It's a Scots classic, apparently, and in libraries. I'm very open to other suggestions, but this is one if no one else has one for now. If you get the same edition as me - with introduction by Tom Crawford - I highly recommend skipping the introduction. It is the most terrible plot spoiler. There is a glossary at the back for dialect words and the blurb/reviews give you an idea what it's about. Anyone in?
