Mel and Trish both love a good read and with the growing popularity of Book Clubs the girls decided to invite Mel’s book club ‘The Bookcases,’ into the studio to chat about the good reads, the bad reads, the benefits, the funny moments, a very sad loss, and all the good things (as well as the odd challenge) that being in a book club brings into their lives as midlife women.
A fun, light-hearted chat with eight women squeezed into a studio and sharing microphones. Now there’s a challenge in itself.
