These are the books we’ve read as a group since Text Tribe started.
Please feel free to add your thoughts about previous books and continuing the conversation by going to the discussion links given by each title – there’s no time limit on discussion in this group :-).
As part of Cityread London, during April 2013 we read A week in December by Sebastian Faulks.
Written by Sir Arthur Conon Doyle between 1908-1917, it is a spy story rather than a murder mystery and was seen as a morale booster for the British public during WWI.
‘When an assassination attempt is made on Sherlock Holmes’ life, it seems that no one can escape the death and dread which blights Britain.’
Mark Billingham, author of Sleepyhead, suggested the next book for Text Tribe: The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly.
Text Tribe was launched with Sleepyhead, by Mark Billingham. To get the group off to a great start, we worked with the publishers – Little, Brown – who were kind enough to supply us with some free copies to give away. Mark, the author, came to talk to as many Text Tribe members as possible as part of the launch period – answering questions, signing books (copies of all his books were on sale) and generally making sure that Text Tribe was launched with a bang.
