Group status: Reading, reading and still reading...



We are a friendly group of keen readers who meet every Thursday lunchtimes to read and have discussions about books. Our group leader is Mrs Lynch, she's really "cool" but doesn't like Sci-Fi and Fantasy books. Mrs Bryden, our Librarian, helps us choose interesting and challenging books to read.
