I don't delve into politics normally but do have to mention I am ticked off about the cut back to the library services. If our local library branches do not have a book, then we can order it through inter-library loan. So they search the library system for the copy closest to us and order it in. Due to the cut backs that service is no longer available.
This will affect book clubs as there are generally 10 + members in each book club and each month you read a book and discuss it. Now granted you can read a book on an electronic device, but I am one of those people who like to feel paper between my fingers when reading a book. Normally when ordering for 10 members they have to find books from different libraries. You can also buy the book from a book store, but I personally don't want to buy books as I read that many.
Already the book club members have sent out email messages wondering how this will work out and how we will share books. I decided that I didn't want to go through all the hassle of doing that and have sent an email to the organizer saying I won't be attending any more meetings.
One of the good things about our library here where we live is that they send out weekly emails for different genre's of book and I am finding those to be useful. I will just carry on as before with my reading.
Are you a member of a book club? Do you like it? I have a stack of books to get through in May; five to review and a couple of my own choices.
