Book Updates for April, May, and June

We had a great meeting last night. Thanks Rika for hosting. I love your puppy (a great dane for those of you who weren't there) and was glad that she liked me, too.

Even though none of us seemed to finish actually reading, "Out of Africa", most of us watched the movie and agree - Robert Redford, particularly in his youth, was super dreamy.

Totally dreamy, actually. Or is that just me?

Anyway, here are our picks for the next few months. Enjoy!

Our meeting has been changed to April 16th and we'll be meeting at Heather's house.

The book du jour is Dress Your Family in Courduroy and Denim by David Sedaris. Being a new but huge fan of Sedaris - you'll love the book and might want to pick up Naked, another collection of short stories about his crazy family.

For May, we'll be meeting at Makayla's house on May 28 and will be reading Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin> I've got no idea what this book is about - so if you do, leave a comment.

The June meeting will be at Melinda's house on June 25 and we'll be reading a book called, The Laments.

It's awesome. You'll love it. The ending sucks.

Happy Reading.
Oh - one more idea for those of you who check the blog....
if you've got a book suggestion, leave it in the comments. That way, we've got a running list of what to read.

March, April, and then some...

Can you believe it's already March? Crazy, isn't it?

The book club is going great - our regular set of girls sure do host a party and put on a great discussion.

We did have a few changes at our February meeting that need to be addressed.

We changed the March book from "the book borrower" to "Out of Africa" by Isak Dinesen, a nom de plume used by the Danish author Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke. This book should be a good read, especially if you like the movie with Robert Redford, right?

March meeting will be held on Thursday, March 26 @ 7 pm.

For the month of April, we'll be meeting at Heather Jackson's house and our book du jour is "Dress your Family in Corduroy and Denim" by David Sedaris. If you haven't read anything by Sedaris - you're in for a comical treat - there aren't many families out there more functionally dysfunctional than his as a kid.

April meeting will be on April 23 @ 7 pm.

Hope to see everyone there.

Oh, anyone want to do treats for March or April? Volunteers to host in May?
