We had a great March discussion of our two books.
One week from tomorrow we’ll be meeting again! I love meeting once a month, it seems to come around quick, which is great! I get to get out for an evening of enlightening adult discussion and, of course, I get to see all of YOU!
You can read one book or both books, it doesn’t matter.
Per Paradise closing early in the winter, we are going to meet at Borders at the Hamilton Town Center at 7:00pm in their cafe section on March 22nd.
Things to come…
We will read A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens for April 17th at 11:00am at Tea’s Me Cafe. (NOTE: this is a Saturday… We all loved Tea’s Me last year and they aren’t open evenings, which is why we’ve moved the date to a Saturday.)
One of our members has graciously offered to do a group order of this book. She is an Usborne consultant and it would be $3.80 (including s/h and tax!) Awesome deal! Please let me know soon if you are interested!
Monday, May 19th at 7:00pm we will be back at Borders at Hamilton Town Center to discuss The Sunny Side: Short Stories and Poems for Proper Grown Ups by A.A. Milne. You should recognize this author. He is famous for his stories of a certain Pooh Bear.
Once May comes around it seems summer busyness hits. I hope you can find time to read these short stories and poems on a sunny day! If you’re thinking ahead, check out Amazon soon they have some used copies VERY cheap!
June is a secret! 🙂 Well… I can tell you we’ll be meeting June 21st at 7:00pm… but the rest is a secret! The book won’t be revealed until May’s meeting… but don’t worry, there’s a good chance you’ve already read this well-known popular book.
Remember, you can also keep up with all things Book Club related by getting all the posts sent straight to your inbox. On the left at the top I’ve set it up so you can just add your email address and never miss an entry!
Monday March 22nd at 7:00pm we will be meeting to discuss Muslims Christians and Jesus and/or Miniskirts, Mothers & Muslims at Borders at Hamilton Town Center. (I checked… even though Paradise’s website says they are open until 9:00… that won’t be the case until well into Spring.)
Don’t worry. You don’t have to read both books. If you’d like to you may, or just pick one.
I hope you enjoy the book(s) and like our theme I hope they broaden your horizons and maybe expand your world view.
Have you ever laughed so hard you cried?
Telephone Pictionary is ALWAYS a funny game.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas for February 22nd at 7:00pm at Sarah J’s house.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens at 11:00am on April 17th at Tea’s Me Cafe. (NOTE: this is a Saturday… We all loved Tea’s Me last time and they aren’t open evenings, so April will be a Saturday meeting.)
Hope you can make it!
We have one more book for 2009:
The Code of the Woosters by PG Wodehouse on Monday December 14th at 7:00pm at my house. (email me if you need directions)
Then in the first half of 2010 we’ll be reading:
Note: we are not meeting in January, so plenty of time to get started on…
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas for February 22nd at 7:00pm. We will be meeting at Sarah J’s house. (email me if you need directions) Several people have told me this is their favorite book, a 10 book! I’m excited to get it started and see what it’s all about!
Muslims Christians and Jesus by Carl Medearis AND Miniskirts, Mothers and Muslims by Christine A. Mallouhi at 7:00pm on March 22nd at Paradise Bakery and Cafe. We’ve never done two books in one month before, but don’t worry. Pick one or the other, or you can read both! I would challenge you to read them both, I think it will make for a great discussion!
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens at 11:00am on April 17th at Tea’s Me Cafe.
Many more great books will be read next year, thanks for all your great suggestions! I’ll be adding them to the schedule soon.
