Here is a book club with a difference - it's a lucky dip: The Bookshop in Wigtown have a Random Book Club through which you'll get a hand-picked book a month but you won't know what it is until it arrives. Leave your literary comfort zone, "discover treasures you never even knew existed and bring the thrill of browsing dusty shelves right to your doorstep." The link above will give you full details.
Tuesday's edition of Radio 4's A Good Read featured two novels the Cornflower Book Group has read and enjoyed greatly: J.L. Carr's A Month in the Country (post on it here) and Dodie Smith's I Capture The Castle (post here). Harriett Gilbert's guests were hotelier Alex Polizzi and writer Peter Robinson, and the programme is available as a podcast and on iPlayer.
