Loving Frank….

Hello Bookworms!

I hope everyone is enjoying this month’s book! From talking with a few of you, it seems like people are reading and more or less enjoying this one…so, let’s set up our next meeting! With this poll, you should be able to select more than one choice, so please pick ALL the days that work for you.

Also, if anyone is up for hosting, let me know!

September’s book!

Hello fellow Book Worms!

It’s time to vote on our next book. I’m excited about all of these choices — thanks to everyone who sent/gave suggestions. Here are links to the summaries to help you decide:

A Handmaid’s Tale, Something Borrowed, Loving Frank, Geek Love

Of note, I came across something interesting on Emily Griffin’s website – she tries really hard to contact Book Club members who discuss her books – check out what she has to say here.

I’ll check back Thursday night and announce the winner!

August meeting!

Hello everyone!

I hope this finds you all enjoying a wonderful summer – and hopefully, fitting in some reading here and there! I know a lot of us have been busy with trips, boyfriends, wedding planning, etc. I’m hoping we can come up with a date for our August meeting that works for everyone. Please vote as soon as you can, as the first date on this list is Wednesday – my bad.

I propose having this meeting at Books and Books in Coral Gables. I think we’re going to have a few newcomers, and last time that worked out well.

Looking forward to seeing you all and discussing our summer reads!

Two books for July!

Greetings everyone!

It was great to see many of you at June’s book club meeting on Tuesday. We decided on July’s books at the meeting – I think this is the first time that 1) we’ve had a general consensus and 2) we’ve chosen a non-fiction book, so that was exciting. And, we actually decided on 2 books, both of which are fairly short. We’re looking to have the next meeting around the end of July. So, without further ado, next month’s reads are

1) How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

2) Life of Pi by Yann Martel

I’m hoping that these choices generate some good discussion at the next meeting!

Happy reading.

I miss you guys!

Hello book friends. I am getting a little sad that I’m gone! First it was exciting, and now that I’m getting settled, I want nothing more than to come to the next book club meeting and chat with you beautiful ladies! I’m looking for a book club here, but job hunting has taken priority over that for a while. Everyone, please send positive job-hunting vibes my way. I will return the good vibes to each of you, I promise.

If anyone wants to see what I’ve been up to, check out the blog I keep for my family and friends here: http://jessica-livejournal.blogspot.com/ —  Blogs all over the place, I know, right!

Also, I hope all of you read the book, because I have a feeling Ginny’s going to be more serious than I was. Just kidding Ginny! I will be thinking of you all tomorrow night. Have a great time and a lively discussion.

Love from the wild West!

Passing the Torch!

And…..I’ve got it!! Sorry for the delay, I know some of you have been anxiously awaiting next months book! After talking with several of you, the next months book is going to be The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson. I realize this is sort of a dictating way to start off as the new leader – but we’re already a little overdue for choosing a new book, and lots of people recommended or said this one sounds good. I promise to have a poll for July’s book! Let’s plan to have the next meeting in the latter half of June. Also, Jessica said you should all be very nice to me for taking the torch. I concur.

The Girl Who Played With Fire
