I left out some important info from our meeting! We decided it was at the discretion of the host and reviewer as to whether to cancel book group due to snow. Considerations were:location of meeting, parking available close to location, no BIG HILLS, and reviewers ability to attend. The hostess or reviewer would notify me, preferably by phone, and then I would send out a group e-mail with the info. Remember to check your e-mail on a questionable day before leaving the house.
Enjoyed seeing Mary Linn’s enthusiasm over Patrick O’Brien. My husband has been encouraging me to read a few, but it wasn’t until Mary Linn’s recommendation that I considered it. But I won’t tell HIM that.
Some ladies mention surprise on the brutality during the French Revolution. I have a good coffee table book called ”Voices of the French Revolution”. Good pictures with good historical descriptions.
I also have “The Orientalist” by Tom Reiss, his book before “The Black Count”. Don’t have “The Count of Monte Cristo” but do have “The Black Tulip” by Alexandre Dumas. It was his last major historical novel. All available.
Have a good week,
