B:Read’s third Book Meet held at Au Lait Cafe on 7 April 2012 filled the tiny private room with laughter as the discussion for the night focused on participants’ favourite writer.
Balloons from a previous party were strewn across the floor and the four walls, encouraging vague games of dodge ball as participants slammed balloons across the room to both new and old friends throughout the night.
Some of those who attended did not have any favourite writers, but any form of discussion from them were welcomed by B:Read as the meet aims to give a space for readers to talk about books, and more importantly, bond with other readers.
Highlights throughout the night included joint presentations on Douglas Adams and John Green to individual love towards David Foster Wallace to Agatha Christie to JM Barrie to a borderline psychotic and nearing cry-for-help gushing love towards Simon Rich. Other discussions included the genres of Who-Done-It, Young Adult, and a fantastic elaborate and educational presentation on the fantasy genre by Imran, who at the end of the night, won a copy of Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare because of his intense knowledge of the genre that may or may not get him laid.
We would like to thank those who came and supported B:Read either for the first time or the umpteenth time. Remember, guys, it is essential to know the floor plan to your favourite writer’s home.
