Armadale Academy Book Group
Armadale, West Lothian
Group status: Started reading, some going faster than others. Top reader on six.

Just a few of our Book Group

We are a small but select group with some keen readers and some who well, may not be so keen, but love to talk books. We meet on a Wednesday lunchtime in the library with Dr Carter. Armadale is a superb place to live (according to our Book Group!) and you will find it in West Lothian, halfway between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Title: The Graveyard Book
Author: Neil Gaiman
Winning Year: 2010
