The Sound of the Hours by Karen Campbell

About us

The Madeira Book Club started in September 2010.  We have members who are both full-time and part-time residents of Madeira and so the group dynamics change at each meeting.  We meet every month on the second Wednesday, rotating around members’ homes.

As a group, we are finding it fascinating to share each others’ tastes and ideas.  We’ve had books we’ve loved and books that some members haven’t been able to finish.  We’ve had funny books, sad books, historical books and gruesome books.  But we all agree that it is expanding our interest and opening us to genres we might not have otherwise attempted.

Each month, one member hosts the meeting with the book they have chosen.  And so, our reading list gradually accumulates, offering us all the opportunity to widen our interests and benefit from each others’ tastes and experiences.

With a glass of wine, a few nibbles, plenty of cake and a group of friends, it is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

If you are interested in joining the group,  please contact us.
