Sharing, discussing, challenging and laughing

Our book club, Emerald Bookworms, meets once a month.  We borrrow the reading sets of books from a local library, so our books have been quite diverse over the years.  Some are set in Australia, while others come from Asia, Europe, Africa, India, Britain and the United States, so we also gain an understanding of how others see the world.  While most are fiction, the genres are varied and include mystery, thriller, romance, family sagas, historical, war, human interest, detective, biograhpy and comedy.

The breadth of ages, backgrounds and experiences in our group ensures that our discussions are interesting, open, lively and often challenging, usually punctuated by fun and laughter.

In reading about and discussing other people in times and places different from our own, and sometimes in similar situations, we are challenged to appreciate the views of others and also to re-examine our own lives and value systems.
