Good morning! I want to run through the house screaming “It is book club day! It is book club day!” Perhaps tossing flower petals out of a little yellow basket as I do so.
Yes that is how excited I am about having book club at my house this evening. The book Descent by Tim Johnston was one I enjoyed and I am curious what the rest of the Bookies thought of it. I already know there will be mixed feelings on this one which does make for good discussion. I already have my food planned (you will see what I came up with tomorrow!) and an idea for a prop or two…. we do like to get into the books we read.
I was just talking about our book club with a friend yesterday and was explaining we were so much more than a book club. I told this friend that while at one time we were a bunch of motley crew gals that enjoyed books, through the years we became so much more. We are there for one another when we go through things. I would not want to lose any one of them. I teared up a little bit when I spoke of them.
It is true. We have built such an amazing group that I hang tight to them. Together we are funny, we are serious, we are sad, we are passionate, and we get angry – all about books. I love it. I do.
Each meeting we choose the next book we plan to read. We can all submit a book for vote – we look for a book that is:
Fairly new so we can find enough copies
priced under $15 and Kindle does count
SO my question to you this morning since at this time I do not have a suggestion in mind, what book would you suggest I put forth for the book club tonight to be considered as our April read? Why would that make a good book club book?
