It’s has been since last fall that we have a group book discussion through Word Shakers On Line Book Club. Finally after the business of the holidays and the recovery time, I am ready to dust off this read a long and hope that many of you will decide to join me.
This year I have taken an interest in Elizabeth Berg’s writing. This is an author that has surprised and delighted me with her style and I am thinking if I had been missing out of this amazing author, how many of you have not had the opportunity to read her either? The book for this read a long will be Elizabeth Berg’s most recent release:
As onetime classmates meet up over the course of a weekend for their fortieth high school reunion, they discover things that will irrevocably affect the rest of their lives. For newly divorced Dorothy, the reunion brings with it the possibility of finally attracting the attention of the class heart-throb. For the ever self-reliant, ever left-out Mary Alice, it’s a chance to reexamine a painful past. For Lester, a veterinarian and widower, it is the hope of talking shop with a fellow vet—or at least that’s what he tells himself. For Candy, the class beauty, it’s the hope of finding friendship before it’s too late. As these and other classmates converge for the reunion dinner, four decades melt away: desires and personalities from their youth reemerge, and new discoveries are made. For so much has happened to them all. And so much can still happen.
This book will be a new one for me as well as I have been reading many of Elizabeth Berg’s books, but have yet to read this one. On another note – joining in for the read-a-long will fit in nicely with another event I will be posting later this week.
Here is how Word Shakers works:
Fill out the form below with your interest in participating. Read the book between now and March 15th. On March 6th an email will be sent to all participants with questions on what you thought of the book. Participants will fill out the form that will automatically come back to me. I will compile the results in a review that will be posted here on March 22. A linky will be available on that post for you to attach your reviews of this book as well. *You do not have to have a blog to participate in Word Shakers book club.
If you have already read the book you are still welcome to join in. If you would like to be included in a mailing group that will be notified each time a new read is announced, leave me a comment below saying so and I will add you to the group. (*You do not need to post your email, I receive it with every comment)
