Day 186 - Bookclub at our place
It was our turn to host our bookclub meeting this time round - happens about twice a year. The pic shows the fruit flan I purchased from the local bakery for sweets - very yummy. Our book was The Slap by Chris Tsoilkas - a ripper of a read. I'm a bit embarrassed to say that because the story involves some rather confronting personalities who have some rather skewed values. They swear a lot, drink and imbibe too much, have affairs etc. But I couldn't put it down! It's one of those books you just eat up. Our next book is Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee which might return us to a slightly more rarified literary level.
