Our July read is revealed…

Our next read will be Alex Through the Looking Glass (published under the title The Grapes of Math in the US) by Alex Bellos who becomes the first author to have had 2 reads in our book club. As usual we will have a chat of roughly an hour on Tuesday 28th July at 8pm (BST). After this we will continue the chat as a “slow chat” until Sunday 2nd August when we will choose a read for September. This will enable those in other time zones to join in more easily than at present. As always you are welcome to tweet along as you read, please remember to use the hashtag #mathsbookclub in all your tweets so people can see the conversation with a quick hashtag search. Any tweets you can out put to help us advertise the bookclub would be much appreciated. 

Hope you enjoy the book.

If any of you read these books and would like to contribute a guest book review for our blog, please get in touch via Twitter.
