Group status: Getting started on Carnegie books!

Our group

We are The Authors' Retreat. We are a reading group that meet every Monday after school in the Learning Resources Centre. We do all sorts including playing games, quizzes or just simply reading. We will be reading the Carnegie for the next few months, with the reviews from members of the group being posted on our page. So far, the group decision is that we are all enjoying the books, including those who have a slightly different taste in reading material.
