This past year has been a crazy one! Between working, weddings, grand children and parents it was difficult to find time to read and nearly impossible to find time to write.
Now, things seem to be settling down (at least for the moment) and I am looking forward to another reading season with The Friday Morning Bookclub. Can you believe we have been meeting for over 14 years and have read over 160 books together?
Our next book is anything but your typical romance novel. It is three different versions, three different “what if “scenarios. Please join us in reading The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett
Every April we have a couples meeting where we invite our husband, significant other or a book lover friend to an evening dinner meeting. It is always a challenge choosing a book that appeals to both men and women and is a good discussion book.
Some of the books we have read in the past are:
The Triple Agent
In The Garden of the Beast
The Reluctant Fundamentalist
The Plot Against America
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Devil in the White City
We do our best to keep it on the shorter side to encourage everyone to actually read the book and in the past have enjoyed some lively discussions. Of course the delicious pot luck dinner which follows our book discussion is always the highlight of the evening!
It may seem a little early to choose a book for April, but we want to give those busy men plenty of time to read. Have you read any books which you think may fit the bill? Any recommendations?
One of my many New Years Resolutions is to try to get back to The Friday Morning Bookclub Blog. I may not be as diligent about posting as I once was, but I am going to attempt to at least let everyone know what we are reading and keep our book list updated.
So hear goes……This month’s book is Circling the Sun by Paula McLain
Amazon readers gave The Elephant Whisperer 4.8 stars
Goodreads readers gave The Elephant Whisperer 4.4 stars
The Elephant Whisperer follows the life of Anthony Lawrence, a South African conservationist who agrees to accept a herd of rogue elephants in order to keep them from being killed.
Although this is not the kind of book I would normally choose to read, I was pleasantly surprised. The relationship that developes between Lawrence and the elephants is inspirational. An enjoyable read!
