Morning Meanderings… The BOOK Exchange!

2a1

Good morning!

It is the morning of our Bookies Coronation.   SQUUUEEEEE!!!  I bought the dress on Saturday, I wrote my speech last night, giggling and texting my friend like a school girl about “How’s it going are you done?  Are you ready?”  with her texting back just as excited “just finishing up, now picking out my dress”

It will be great :)

Last month at book club, we had our Annual Book Exchange.  This practice started three years ago.  Each Bookie is supposed to wrap up in plain brown paper ( we are trying to avoid people picking the *pretty packaging*) a book that they have read in the past year that was a great read.  Obviously, not a Bookies Book Club pick.

Then…

We all randomly choose a book out of the pile and that will be the book we will each read and discuss in July (tonight) while we enjoy good food and conversation.  It is a fun tradition:

I had missed Bookies last month as I was at camp but I still participated.  I sent a book into the mix – the center picture above, Delicious by Ruth Reichl (LOVED that one!) and then the group picked a book out for me.  So what did I have picked to read this past month?

I had Lethal by Sandra Brown.  This was a good one for me as I have tried Sandra Brown before and could not get through it.  She seems like an author I would enjoy, so this was a fun attempts again.  I finished it last night…. I will review the book later but for now I would describe it as very similar to the book Labor Day…. but a heck of a lot steamier.  ;)

  11. Not quite what I was expecting as a book exchange (I thought it was just a gift giving thing) but it is a brilliant idea!

    I have read Lethal. I think it is the only Sandra Brown book I’ve read and I look forward to your review to see if you felt the same about it. I had not heard of Labor Day at the time I read it but I can definitely see the similarity with the premise.

  12. A fabulous idea! You always have so much fun, your Bookies bookclub is just the BEST!

  13. This sounds like such a fun tradition! I really need to find myself a book club to join!
