Made it to the reading group with plenty of time to spare. Annoyingly the shop was shut before hand, so there wasn't a chance to nose around the books. There were plenty of people there, some of which I didn't already know. Time will tell how interesting/cool/whatever they are, but they all seem alright so far. Now I have to find a copy of the first book (something by Kate Wilhelm) and start reading it. Probably a good job term has finished so I've got lots more free time.
