Your proposed new member sounds like just what we want.  Could I ask though
that you do not mention it until the list is running properly?


I am in agreement to a closed list, by invitation only, and I would prefer
it to be a list for the blind.  I am not too happy with the idea of sending
books to sighted people.  They can get books easily enough for themselves.
It is because we have so few books available to us that I am happy to
distribute books to blind readers.

I can think of someone who, I think, would be an enthusiastic and committed
member.  She is VI, but now lives in Australia, though she is British, and
has a degree in English.  She is even more of a bookworm than I am.  What do
members think?


I don't like the idea of asking on open lists, and certainly would baulk at
the idea of asking non-blind readers, but I'm happy to go along with what
others think.

A few more members would be good, but I am also very happy with what we
already have, if we can't think of any more. I like our reading choices and
would be just as happy reading from our small group, as everyone tries to
introduce new authors and styles.

I'm not sure I can think of anyone to ask, though I've racked my brains.
Everyone I can think of is too busy to keep up, unrelyable or involved in
too many genre specific book clubs already.

The only other idea would be to ask on an open list for interested members
and then vet anyone who wanted to join. How did we think in the end about
members being non UK and not blind? Even then, I still don't think I can
think of anyone though but it might widen the scope if anyone else did.
