February's Book: The Princess Bride

Thank you Susan for hosting a fun book club.  Now every time I see the game Qwertl (sp) I will think of you and the fun time we had playing this game...and Julie, who got like 12 Qwertl's.  So, our book for February is The Princess Bride by William Goldman.  Yes, it's just like the movie (probably) only more good stuff in it (at least I'm hoping).  We have a new system for book club which I'm kind of excited about.  It's always good to switch things up a bit.  A little spontaneity is a good's what you need to keep a marriage strong, and hopefully it will keep our book club going strong too.  Each book club we all put in the name of a book that we would like to read, then we choose from a hat/bowl, etc.  Whatever we choose will be the book for the month.  It's random and fun, and takes all the guess work out of who's turn it is to choose a book.

This month's book club will meet on Saturday February 25th at Heather Felix's home.  Time and directions will be posted on FB in the near future.  Happy Reading All!

January's Book

Happy 2012 ladies!  It's a new month and a new book.  This month the book is Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster.  It's so fun to have each of us picking a new book each month because there are so many books that I've never heard of before.  This is one of them.  I read that this book is really popular in Iran, and for those just learning english as a 2nd language.  It's also a classic piece of literature written in 1912, so I'm really excited to read it.  There was also a movie made with Fred Astair, and not sure who else.  Way fun!

Book club will be on Saturday January 28th at Susan Alexander's home.  I'm not sure of the address or time, but I'm sure it will all be posted on FB!  Can't wait to discuss.

I'll just throw this out in the blogger wind...Did anyone read last month's book?  Me...Me...I Did!  :)

December Book

Book Club was all spread out last month, but most of us got to go see the new Twilight movie!  Gotta love our guilty pleasures.  So new month new book.  This month the book is "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton.  If you're thinking it's a spin off of "The Secret Garden" you are wrong.  The similarities are in some of the names, and an orphan going to live with a crippled kind of creepy uncle.  That's about it.  It's a bit of a haunting mystery type of read.

Book club meeting this month is TBD.  The holidays are hard to get together, but maybe there's a time when most of us can.  Check FB to voice any ideas.  We also would like to do a little reorganization with our book choosing order.  It's all out of whack now since we lost some, and some are just too busy to even think about reading for fun, so let's discuss when we next meet.

Happy reading, and Happy Holidays.  Love you all!
