BOC Book Group will be reading: ‘Ready Player One’ by Ernest Cline, on 6th June.

Our next staff book group session is on 6th June (the last meeting before October), we will be reading: ‘Ready Player One’ by Ernest Cline.

A 2011 science fiction novel, and the debut novel of American author Ernest Cline. The story, set in a dystopia in 2044, follows protagonist Wade Watts on his search for an Easter egg in a worldwide virtual reality game, the discovery of which will lead him to inherit the game creator’s fortune.

Layered with inside jokes and sly references that will appeal to a wide range of readers, “Ready Player One” is a smart, funny thriller that both celebrates and critiques online culture – critic review

BOC staff Book Group will be reading ‘The Radleys’ by Matt Haig on Thursday 7th March 2019 from 12-1pm in UH2.


Life with the Radleys: Radio 4, dinner parties with the Bishopthorpe neighbours and self-denial. Loads of self-denial. But all hell is about to break loose. When teenage daughter Clara gets attacked on the way home from a party, she and her brother Rowan finally discover why they can’t sleep, can’t eat a Thai salad without fear of asphyxiation and can’t go outside unless they’re smothered in Factor 50.

With a visit from their lethally louche Uncle Will and an increasingly suspicious police force, life in Bishopthorpe is about to change. Drastically.
