Course testimonials:

  • Intelligent lively discussion and group friendships. Margaret Baird is an excellent facilitator.
  • This is a Top group where the continued renewal of the membership speaks for itself. A highlight of the week! Margaret is a gifted facilitator and friend to everyone.
  • I enjoy the discussion and the close relationship that has developed between the women in the group.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the 5 week course. Time of day and venue worked perfectly for me. I would strongly recommend it. Such fun.
  • As always, another stimulating term of discussion, controversy and illumination.
  • I have enjoyed reading the different books selected by Margaret which I probably would not have chosen myself. This has broadened my reading base and enjoyment of reading enormously. Margaret is a great teacher/leader as is shown by the fact our class is consistently full!!
  • Course great as always. I prefer a normal class but thank you for making zoom possible.
  • I value the opportunity to connect with friends I have made in this group. Margaret chooses interesting books which encourage much discussion.
  • I have been attending Reading for Pleasure for some years and I have always looked forward to joining the group each term. Margaret has done an excellent job of coordinating our group and is considerate and inclusive of all our members.
  • Very enjoyable even though it has to be on Zoom for the time being! Venue rating would have been higher had it not been at home!!
