The books are from the Calibre Book Group lists and we aim to offer an entertaining and varied mix of titles for you to enjoy. All you need to do is borrow the book on cd or memory stick then listen at home and come to the next meeting to chat about what you thought and discover new aspects of the book through the views of other people. So why not come along to make new friends and enjoy reading. If you would like to join in an audio book club and for further details please contact Mark or Elaine on 01603 629558 or email marksmith@nnab.org.uk
