The World Really Doesn't Need Another Blog

I think I read somewhere that it's been estimated that if blogs keep appearing at current rates by 2014 the internet will be full and we'll all have to go back to talking to one another. Still, here's another one. We feel justified in creating it because it's the ideal forum for our new "Ask the Author" thingummy.

Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights has two book groups - the Marvellous Monday Book Group and the Tremendous Tuesday Book Group - which each meet every 5 or 6 weeks at the bookshop at 14/15 John St in Bath. The books that we read are chosen by the members and the membership is open. You can read all about the groups and join them by clicking here.

Where possible we've now started putting a few questions to the authors of the books that the Book Groups read. The questions are things that come up at the Book Group meetings. By posting the questions and author answers those in the Book Group, those who couldn't make the meeting, those who are waiting for an improvement in the housing market so they can move to Bath to be nearer Mr B's and its book groups and anyone else in the big wide world, can read what the author had to say and, if they wish, continue discussing the book too.

Hope you like the idea. The first "Ask the Author" post is on its way!
