Didsbury Book Group

We talk about them too ! If you like to talk about what you've read, then please join us — new members are very welcome. We meet at the Fletcher Moss on William Street in Didsbury around 8 pm.

There's a meeting every fortnight, but you don't have to come to them all. It's dead simple; choose a book you like the sound of, read it (or even part of it) beforehand and turn up with a few ideas and money for beer / wine / flirtinis. It's all very informal, and we're quite a friendly bunch. We can usually be found on the table with the books and flirtinis.

Christmas Stories - Charles Dickens



This week we'll be reading some of Charles Dickens' short stories and there seem to be a few collections of Christmas themed stories which seems appropriate.

To ensure some commonality, try and pick a version that has as many of the following in:
  • Christmas Festivities
  • The Story of the Goblins that Stole a Sexton
  • A Christmas Episode from Master Humphrey's Clock
  • A Christmas Carol
  • The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain
  • A Christmas Tree
  • What Christmas is, as We Grow Older
  • The Seven Poor Travellers
