The Phantom Book Club

OMG – I have a group of people meeting in my name! That is True Fame! My head’s so big I’m having trouble getting the old tricorn on today…

If you recall, Kirstie contacted me back in July, hoping to set up a book club. She had a massive response and now The Phantom Book Club is meeting on a monthly(?) basis at the Cutty Sark pub. The last meeting, on Thursday night, based around A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, was some night – Kirstie herself left at 10.00pm and the discussions were still going strong (Photo by Simon, who I assume isn’t in the pic…)

The group’s quite full now, but I’m sure they could squeeze the odd extra reader in. They have quite a few girls, so they’ll appreciate a couple more chaps. They’ll be setting up a Facebook-y blog-y type page soon, which I’ll put on the links section, but in the meanwhile, email me and I’ll pass you onto Kirstie.

Blimey. Whatever next? The Phantom Knitting Circle? The Phantom Pachinko Players? The Phantom Sheep Fanciers of Olde Greenwich Towne? Bring ‘em my way, baby…

    Anyone know if this book club is still on the go? Id love an excuse to get out and meet more neighbours, and get me back in the habit of reading more.

    Hi all,

    The bookgroup is still going strong, however we are quite a big group at the moment.
    If you’d like to go on the waiting list to join, you can email me on

    I have been part of another book group in Greenwich for a couple of years now but, due to people moving away / work commitments, numbers are dwindling, so if anyone who has not made other plans would be interested in joining, please feel free to email me.

    We currently meet monthly (Tuesdays) in central Greenwich, but can be flexible with dates.
