Friday Morning Bookclub

2009 In Review

Filed under: Literary Tidbits,The Friday Morning Book Club — susanbright @ 3:42 pm

This year we learned  about The  Vél’ d’Hiv’ round ups in Paris , what it was like to live with a child suffering from  osteogenesis imperfecta, polygamy, the Salem Witch trials, The Collyer Brothers, life in India and so much more. We talked about how one stupid mistake could change your whole life as well as what you would do, if you could do it all over again! We had some wonderful discussions, had the opportunity to preview the book Homer & Langley and write our own list of discussion questions and we invited our husbands to join us for an evening pot luck dinner meeting.  We started our own blog which made it possible to vote on our book choices,  rate our books on a scale of 1-5  omelets and gave us the opportunity to share book ideas with people from all over the world. We have blogged with people from Ohio, Tennessee, New York, New Jersey, California, Arizona, Toronto, and even Spain, France and Germany.  It has been a lot of fun and  I am looking forward to 2010 and all the wonderful books waiting to be read!

  3. I will “third” that sentiment! The blog is such a great addition to our club and I know it takes time and effort to keep it going. Thanks, Susan, for your energy, persistence and new ideas!
