Another good read

One of the bad things about reading a good book is that, when its finished, you wonder of you will ever find another that is as good. Thankfully you always do. I have just finished reading my latest BCB (book club book) called "Someone knows my Name" by Lawrence Hill. It was a pretty long book but it took me no time at all to read it. I was immediately sucked into the story, which revolved around an African woman who was captured from her home and sold into slavery in the 1700's. The atrocities she endured were shocking, but the story never allows itself to get too morbid and you find yourself rooting for the heroine. I really enjoyed it.

A book club is a wonderful invention. It encourages you to read, something I love to do but don't make enough time for. And its an excuse to meet up with friends, chat about what you've all read and most importantly, have a few glasses of wine while you do so. Can't fault it!
