I discovered something very important about this month’s BookTalk title that I’d like to pass along, don’t read it in public. Unless you’re one of those people who cries with a single, sparkling tear slipping down your cheek (not a gulper and snorter like me), you’ll just embarrass yourself trying to get through this one in a coffee shop or at the café in the grocery store. No, Irreplaceable by Stephen Lovely is definitely a stay-at-home read.
I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with friends during the past two weeks. My friends are very important to me, and I cherish the time we have to be together. People become friends under many different circumstances. Sometimes it’s through our children, sometimes through work or church.

Once again, it's the end of the month and almost time for next month's book club at the Grain Valley Branch. We will be discussing The Last Jihad by Joel C. Rosenberg. I found this to be an exciting book. I hope all of the book club patrons enjoyed it as well.
