SENIOR BOOK CLUB SCHEDULE OF READING : 2013
This year Senior Book Clubers have decided to meet once a month. We have all chosen a book or an author to discuss so we will all try and read these books before the monthly meeting. The member(s) who have chosen that month's book are also in charge of organising the activities or leading the discussion, as well as providing food to share.
All members will bring a cup or mug to the meeting and Mrs M will provide milo.
The schedule of reading is provided here:



TERM 1
Friday March 22nd:

MISTER MONDAY by Garth Nix : Chenoa & Lauren
This is the first book in "The Keys to the Kingdom" series. Website for this great series can be found here.
Our first book for this year was Mister Monday by Australian author, Garth Nix. This is a wonderful fantasy novel, the first in of seven books in the “Keys to the Kingdom” series. At our meeting members tackled a fun quiz (created by Chenoa) which certainly tested our memories and we were rewarded with some yummy chocs (thanks Chenoa!). We also discussed the characters and the links between other books.
Everyone enjoyed themselves. We also enjoyed having hot milo (in our favourite cups) and the chips, dip and bikkies provided by Lauren and Chenoa.
Because this meeting was held towards the end of Term 1, just before Easter, we also had a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny.
We then borrowed our book for next month's meeting (and packets of tissues).

Some members were excited to be talking about John's book - some people were too sad after finishing the book to see the fun!
