Morning. Coffee. Overcast day. Overcast mood. Day 68.
On Tuesday of this week we had our Bookies Book Club meeting and discussed the book The Pearl That Broke It’s Shell by Nadia Hashimi. I did not finish the book, I started it and then knew it would be too detailed for me at this time. Those who read it said it was a good read and they learned about the Afghanistan culture. It made for a good book discussion and I enjoyed listening to the discussion.
For the fourth year in a row, we have made June our book exchange month. The rules: You are supposed to bring a book that you really enjoyed (preferably in the last year) that you would like someone else to enjoy too. Put a post it note in the book saying why you enjoyed this book so much and if you want the book back or if the person who chose it can keep it. You wrap the book in brown paper wrap. We then each choose a book out of the pile and that is what we read for our July gathering. Here are the books that were picked:
Amy M – Wind Through The Keyhole (Sharon)
Angie – Blessings by Anna Quindlen (Lori P)
Sheila – Abercrombie Trail by Candace Simar (Laura)
Kaydi – Waiting For Summers Return (Kathy)
Lori – Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (Amy P)
Jean – The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (Sheila)
Sharon – Those Who Save Us (Mary)
Amy – Distant Shores (Jean)
Kathy – Naked in Death (Lori N)
Susan – Walking on Water (Kaydi)
Mary – Union Street Bakery (Amy M)
Lori – The Nightingale (Angie)
Laura – Gift From The Sea (Susan)
Today my son’s roommate is coming to visit me. It will be nice to see her, but I know it will be an afternoon filled with memories and tears.
