A Taste of Art

The idea of organising a book club was raised among Alice, Fai Zai and I nearly ten years ago.  We dedicate the Sands Book Club to fiction reading and meet every other month, each time for one selected fiction.  Mostly on Saturday nights, each of us bringing one dish, club members share the food as well as our ideas.

大約十年前,Alice、輝仔與我萌起組織讀書會的念頭,記得那次在某家餐廳吃晚飯,談呀談呀,竟就成了真,並取名「沙之社」。我們隔月聚頭,圍讀一本選定的小說,一般都在星期六晚上。會上各人帶一味菜,或自製家常菜,或信心外賣,於是大家分享食物,共味小說。

It’s demanding to spend nights to finish a full-length novel and a bit old-fashioned to gather together for a group discussion; but we love it. Reports are published on internet too.

坦白講,讀完一部小說只少得花上數十個晚上,在現今電腦年代,這要求實在高!而且大家圍圈討論,也確實有點老派!不過,這就是難能可貴之處!我們也寫成筆記,在網上公諸同好。

All over these years, Suzanne, Lap Tak, Looy, Sandra, Mary and Vicky actively support us.  Other names that need to be mentioned include Fan Fan, Chin Chin, Emma, Dawn, Hilda, Lik-lik, Sabina, Siu Lai, Chris, Ah Him, Victor and Po-wai.  By changing the books we read, everything changes.  Some members have become mothers and get occupied by their babies, while other becomes volunteer worker in Africa.

這些年來,到過讀書會裡來的名字實在不少!芬芬、千千、Emma、阿Dawn、Hilda、Lik-lik、Sabrina、小麗、阿Chris、阿謙、Victor及蒲偉。當然,Suzanne、立德、Looy、Sandra、Mary與Vicky更是中流砥柱!我們讀的書如走馬燈,世情也隨之團團轉。有的書友由「妹妹仔」,搖身一變,變成好媽媽!也有的書友為了理想,遠跑非洲當義工去。
