What a fantastic group of readers!
Our reviews are racking up and everyone has done a fabulous job of reading through the shortlist. Some favourites are emerging and there seem to be fewer divisions this year than last year. We are also seeing some definite themes emerging between the books.

Great meeting today.
We talked about some of the books the members of the group have read and tried to avoid any plot spoilers! We watched the video from the author of the Smell of Other People's Houses which is one of the most popular books amongst our group so far. Our group members have gone off to continue with their fantastic rate of reading and reviewing. Brilliant!

What a fabulous team!
Fantastic meeting on Friday. Everyone is really engaged with reading through the books and we had some really insightful discussion about several of the titles. Marcus Sedgwick is definitely splitting our opinions and Robin Talley has won several fans.

Great meeting last Friday for Rodborough Readers who are all working their way through the books on this year's shortlist. Some clear favourites at the moment as you can see from out barometer. in discussing Sedgewick's Ghosts of Heaven all agreed the best word to describe it was 'confusing.'
Next meeting Friday 6th May in the LRC.
