Book Groups support Book Night

About 300 BDS members recorded their participation in Book Night in May. Here's what some of you got up to.

 "Lighting up our lives with books" - Tracey Friend sent in this pic of her Dannevirke group.

Two groups in Te Awamutu joined together at The Station 32 resaurant and had "a wonderful night of sharing and fellowship" (sent in by Margaret Paine of Te Awamutu 005).

Whakatane 002 say 'Yes to reading!!'

Christchurch 446's Vicki Clark sent this in, saying "Enjoying our monthly book group meeting, lots of laughs and good reads!"

Auckland 346 sound like they had a great time with: "Pot luck dinner, wine, great conversation and then reading. Not bad for a Tuesday night."

This photo from Donna Maclean, of Christchurch 306, reflects the Auckland group's sentiments and perhaps encapsulates what reading for pleasure looks like for many book groups!!

 

Thank you to all the BDS members who joined in - as a group or with family - our biggest, annual BDS book event of the year. Thanks, too, for role-modelling reading for pleasure. We are glad you had an enjoyable time.
