Book Club

When we left NZ, one the of the things I sadly said goodbye to was my bookclub. It didn't matter that sometimes most of us hadn't read the book, it was an opportunity to get together and talk about everything and anything. We did discuss the book at some point during the night :-p

My brave friend Penny has organised a Blogosphere Book Circle, an online book club and I'm excited to be taking part. I'm especially excited about our first book as I was fondling it in a book shop the other day. Here's our list for the next 12 months.

  2. March: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close / Jonathan Safran Foer
  3. April: In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto / Michael Pollan
  4. May: The 19th Wife / David Ebershoff
  5. June: The zookeeper's wife / Diane Ackerman
  6. July: Letter to my daughter / Maya Angelou
  7. August: PS I love You / Cecelia Ahern
  8. September: Beautiful Boy/ David Sheeff
  9. October: Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World
  10. November: The girl with the dragon tattoo / Stieg Larson

Hi and thanks for leaving a message on my blog!
I can't wait to start reading the first book, although I have had to order it into the bookshop, the library waiting list was WAY too long!Isn't Penny fantastic for organising this?!
