TBS Original books

The Betterment Society was founded in 2011 – a society formed of just two people, whose sole purpose was personal advancement in literature.

The first book for consideration was Solar by Ian McEwan before moving onto Thomas Hardy’s Jude The Obscure. The Long Song by Andrea Levy was the third book, followed by the most popular book in the bestseller lists at the time, One Day by David Nicholls. Attempts were then made in the summer of 2012 at Grace Notes by Bernard MacLaverty and The Irresistible Inheritance of Wilberforce by Paul Torday.

The Society then went quiet for almost two years… but was resurrected in the spring of 2014 in a new format. The Society would meet once a quarter to discuss a selection of cultural delights. This will consist of a book, an album, a film and the works of a selected artist and poet.

This blog is the collective musings of Society members.
