We also thought we’d throw something else into the mix for our December book discussion to accompany our annual mince pies and Prosecco!

How many times, after reading features such as The Guardian’s ‘The books that made me’, have you been tempted to fill in the answers to many of these questions yourself? So have a think about the following and see where the discussion takes us.
