P&P recap

Pride and Prejudice


PnP brought SEVEN of us together on Monday! (Well, actually 8, if you count the BRAND new little guy in attendance! He slept oh so peacefully thru our chatter.) Jane Austin has been a popular author in our club! She brings the biggest turnouts! (ahh, Christmas decor in the background! Love it!)


On a scale of 1-10 (as my sister says, “if there actually are books that are 10’s”) I’d give PnP a 9.5. The other Austin book we read, Persuasion, is still my favorite, scoring a 10 on my scale.) I had such a good time at the cafe with all these wonderful ladies I wish we met once a week!


I’ll admit I am no expert on books. I actually didn’t like reading much as a child or teen. It wasn’t until I got into my mid-twenty’s that I jumped on the reading bandwagon! Now I feel like I can’t get enough! I love our group because once we gather and start talking about the books I learn so much more about what I just read and all I missed! There are some pretty smart ladies who attend.


Cookies and drinks had by all. And of course a little TableTopics to go around!


I had a fantastic night out! Hope to see you all back next month for The Code of the Woosters by PG Wodehouse on Monday December 14th at 7:00pm at my house. Email me if you need directions. (It’s also our annual Christmas Party!)

I’ll be posting an updated schedule in a day or two so don’t forget to check back here soon!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Eve and I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

meeting location for Persuasion

I can’t believe November 15th is approaching so fast! If you are still working on finishing the book Persuasion you can listen to it here for free! (it also has the text)

This meeting will be at my friend Jodi’s house. Email me if you need directions or want to carpool. Everything will be the same, just a new location. 10:00 am, bring your favorite brunch item. 🙂

Looking ahead to November…and beyond…

November 15th at 10:00am will be our next meeting for Persuasion. (location to be determined)

In December we are going to have our Christmas party! We need to start looking at dates for that… before things get too busy! (suggestions anyone??) Think of people you’d like to invite! It’d be a great chance for them to come for the first time and see what it’s all about.

Then the next meeting after that won’t be until February. We’ll adjust our every-other month schedule because of the holidays. I’ll reveal that book at our Christmas party. (unless you just can’t take the suspense and want to get started on it early!!) 🙂

November’s book

This morning, over a very yummy brunch, we discussed Monday the Rabbi Took Off. It was a fun mystery that took place in Israel soon after the 6 day war. It made me a lot more interested in learning about Israel and its history! Not to mention keeping up with the news and goings-on over there. It also made me a tad jealous of the rabbi for getting to take a 3 month sabbatical!

In November we’ll meet and discuss our next book: Persuasion by the popular English novelist Jane Austen.

(date and location of our next meeting to be determined, it might be a bit cold for the park)
