The book to be discussed and presented was Her by Harriet Lane, which none of us had read. The idea of the book club is that you buy a ticket and get the book sent home to you, but we bought our tickets 3 days before the event and didn't receive our books in time. I must admit that worried me a bit, not knowing how the book was, and what if all the secrets were revealed, but the discussions were not so much about the plot and more about the characters in the book. We were safe. What it did for me was really make me want to read the book, which is a great result (I am saving it for my upcoming holiday).
After sipping wine, eating mini burgers and listening to people talk about a book we hadn't read, we decided we must eat food. Asap. Luckily The Hoxton Hotel has a restaurant, they had a table, and we sat down. It's a grill type of place, and I ordered a burger, as always, but I can hardly remember how it was except that it was good. We were just too busy chatting away and plotting our world domination plans. You know, like every Monday night.
