10 Lovely Years 2003 – 2013

The Loveliest Book Group celebrated its first 10 Lovely Years with 12 months of festivities delivered between July 2012 and July 2013 to commemorate a decade of reading.

The group was founded in July 2003 and retains four of its five original members, friends who pledged to meet monthly in central London to discuss a selected book and literature as a whole. We still follow the fundamental principles agreed that first month and have seen group membership swell from four to nine active members today.

Membership Survey 2012

In June 2012 a survey was conducted of all 11 members who have contributed to LBG over the past decade. The survey asked a wide range of questions, from favourite (and least favourite) books, favourite authors and asking for a year-by-year breakdown of favourite titles, forming an overall league table.
