Books For Older Readers: Newsletter Four

Because we never stop reading.........
As the ‘Books for Older Readers’ group begins to work its way through its second year, here are some statistics:
The BFOR website has now had over 21,000 hits.
There are 8 pages of books, including a selection of shorter reads and poetry.
We have 426 members in our facebook group, 137 followers on twitter, and numbers continue to grow.
So what’s been happening on the site?
February brought a new initiative for Book Clubs to the BFOR website. If you visit our Bookclub page you will find a selection of books with really interesting free downloadable sets of questions written by each author. There are also some excellent discounted offers for multiple copies. We hope you find this useful. We would also welcome any feedback about the page. Please help us to grow by sharing the website and facebook group with others who may be interested.
