Book Club Fun
December 26, 2012
As 2012 draws to a close, I have found myself reflecting on the many blessings of the year. One of those blessings has been working with the adult book club. Our book club meets the first Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Some of our ladies started reading with the group 8 years ago, and others have joined throughout the years. However, we all share something in common—the love of reading. Sometimes the books are enjoyed by all. Sometimes we read a book that no one really cares for but we spend an hour in discussion of the book.
Some of the favorites for 2012 were: To Kill a Mockingbird, a classic by Harper Lee; Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls; Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford; and Christmas Secret by Donna Vin Liere. The surprising book that no one cared for was Prince of Frog Town by Rick Bragg.
As we move forward into a new year, we plan to read some exciting books. A few these books are: Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh; Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn; Can I Get an Amen by Sarah Healy; and The Shoemaker’s Wife by Adriana Trigiani. It will be fun to see which books the ladies like and if there is one that is not so popular. A nice thing about our group is that whether or not the ladies like the book, they are willing to come and discuss. If you are interested in becoming part of our group, please stop by the Library and check out the January 3 book, The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns by Margaret Dilloway. The group members are fun, friendly, and genuinely care about each other. You will be glad you chose to join us!
