A few changes…

…but don’t worry they are good changes!!


I’m excited to announce that we are adding more books to our schedule! We are sneaking another book in for 2009…

For November we are reading another Jane Austen book… Pride and Prejudice. We’ll meet at the Paradise Bakery & Cafe off 69 and 238 on Monday November 23rd at 7:00pm.

December is still going to be The Code of the Woosters by PG Wodehouse on Friday December 4th at 7:00pm.

Then through 2010 we’ll be reading more one-month-books….

January we won’t be meeting, but February’s book is a tad longer so that will just give you extra time to read! In February we’ll meet on Monday the 22nd for The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas at 7:00pm.

March’s book is Muslims Christians and Jesus by Carl Medearis on Monday the 22nd at 7:00pm.

In April we’ll be reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and discussing it on Monday the 19th at 7:00pm.

Next meeting

October is RIGHT around the corner! Have you started The Hound of the Baskervilles yet? If so, what do you think?! It was hard for me to put down! And I’ll admit I wasn’t sure “who dun it” until it was revealed. 🙂 But I’m not sure I had full brain cell power while reading it… I finished it the day before Lydia was born! 🙂

Our meeting to discuss is going to be
October 19th at 7:00pm

location TBD… If anyone has a suggestion of a location or would like to host let me know.

For those like me who like to know what’s coming up, here are the next few books planned… (or if you’d like to PBSwap/Bookmooch them!)

The Code of the Woosters by P.G. Wodehouse for December (this will probably be in early December, the same time as our Christmas Party!)

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas for February

Muslims Christians and Jesus by Carl Medearis for April

October’s book

We were small in numbers for our meeting on Monday, but it was a good time of muffins, iced mango tea and of course talk of Asher Lev!

If you couldn’t make it and still like to hear some discussion on it head over to Midday Connections Book Club site. They read the book back in November of 07 and you can still access the audio archives for it and hear the broadcast.

Our next book for October is The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. If you aren’t familiar with this author… maybe Sherlock Holmes will ring a bell! It’s a mystery featuring the one and only Holmes and Dr Watson.

Amazon currently has it for $3.99! Buy it now for some fun detective Fall reading!

I hope you can find some time to read this one and we’ll see you in October!!
Happy Reading,
Sarah

recap and what’s next

Recap:
Yesterday was a beautiful day for our discussion!! I very much enjoyed our time and of course all the yummy food! (I think I’m still stuffed from it all!) We touched on everything from phantom of the opera to the turkey sex chapter to gardening. Everyone was impacted by the book and are planning more gardening of their own!! I would really encourage you to read it sometime! All of us are counting the days until more Farmer’s Markets open! And please, anyone who knows where to get those blue potatoes mentioned, let us know! We’d love to try them!!

If you did read this one, I’d be interested to know how you’d rate it on a scale of 1-10 and why? Send me an email or leave a comment.

What’s Next: The Shack
This time we only have one month to read it. May 16th will be our next discussion at the park. I’ve almost finished it and can’t wait to see how it turns out! I would definitely suggest not judging this book “by it’s cover.” My challenge to you would be to read it for yourself and not to take others opinions of it as your own.

And Beyond:
For those who like to know what’s coming and get things on the calender, here are the following books and dates…

June: Suzanna Wesley by Arnold A. Dallimore (and a brunch picnic for the whole family!) on June 20th (it’s only 11 cents used on amazon right now!!!)

July: My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok, 10:00 am at the park, July 25th

August: The Code of the Wooster by PJ Wodehouse, 10:00 am at the park, August 15th
