Stuck for something to read? Want to try something different, refresh your reading tastes or get some tips from someone in the know? In the Colchester area? We may be able to help.
Rob and Kate of Adventures With Words will host Literary Dinner Date at The Waiting Room in Colchester every fourth Wednesday of the month, starting this Wednesday 23rd July. Here’s the link to the Facebook event if you’re in the area and would like to RSVP. As you probably know, Rob is a certified bookseller, Kate is a qualified and experienced English teacher, and together we run Adventures With Words, this book blog and podcast, as well as contributing to Hear, Read This! and our other ventures. What can we recommend?
We’re bringing with them a whole menu of book-treats to whet your mental tastebuds; books are divided into starters – light bites to grab your interest, main courses – meatier reads to get your teeth into, and desserts – sweeter and fluffier, guilty pleasures. You can read in, take away, or if there’s nothing you fancy, you can ask for some recommendations from the friendly book waiters (that’s Rob and Kate).
During the evenings, there’ll be a licensed bar to enjoy, and Rob and Kate will also be collecting your comments about the books you’ve devoured, at our Guestbook online or at The Waiting Room, so we can keep sharing recommendations with future readers.
The bookcase will remain in The Waiting Room full time, so you can keep feeding your reading habit whenever the venue is open. Feel free to add your own books to our selection. Follow @LitDinnerDate to find out when we’ve added more books, or to tweet for a recommendation.
