I truly believe that every book has its reader and I love hearing people talk about the books they love. There are no good and bad books, just books that are enjoyed by some but maybe not by others. If you got the book in physical form bring it along, otherwise, the title and authors name, (maybe a screenshot of the cover on your mobile phone) will do. Each member is invited to briefly introduce their book, what it is about and most importantly why they liked it, what made it special for them. And then other members can ask questions.
After each meeting, I will post all the introduced books on the Facebook page (fb.me/anybookbearwood), so you can check up the title. It will create a nice little snapshot – hopefully – of what Bearwood is reading. Naturally, you don’t have to live in Bearwood to attend.
People in the Black Country have been warned about a new scam trying to steal their hard earned cash.
Crooks are now sending out emails claiming to be from the TV Licensing Authority saying there is a problem with their direct debit and threatening a fine.
John Spellar MP said “ These low life are trying to ruin Christmas for ordinary decent folk. I am particularly worried that pensioners will be fooled and urge their families to keep a watch out for these emails, one clue is that they word it as the American spelling as License rather than the British spelling as Licence.”
Whether you do your shopping online, or do your main weekly shop in a supermarket chain, you can still help our local economy and support local traders by getting some items from our shops on Bearwood Road. #UseItOrLoseIt
…and the Bearwood xmas tree is looking good!
