The Book Lovers Book Club Meet

The third Book Lovers Club meeting was held at Crossword, Linking Road on Sunday,5th September. This was our first meet at the store and I would like to thank the Crossword staff and Tanaz for their whole hearted support and co-operation to ensure the meet went off smoothly. The Calcutta Chromosome by Amitav Ghosh was discussed, debated and reviewed since it was our pick as the book of the month. After reading Indian authors back to back it was decided to pick an international writer and since most of the members have not yet read Stieg Larsson’s trilogy we decided to start with his first book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as the book of the month!
Parul Sharma joined us to read from her yet to be released book ‘By the Water Cooler’ which will be out in the market soon. If the first chapter, which she read for the members, is anything to go by this is one book which will turn out to be a good read!

Parul also sportingly answered a lot of questions about her new book and her first book ‘Bringing up Vasu: The First Year’.
Thank you Parul for joining us at the meet & reading excerpts from your new book we'd also like to wish you all the very best for the same!
The Book Lovers book club's next meeting will be on Sunday 3rd October. Will post more details soon.
If you would like to join the book club in Bombay do write in to us as at bookwelove (at) gmail (dot) com.
