Another informative and enjoyable book group for all 19 of us! Special thanks to Beth for hosting. Her “long” living room gave us the space. No rears on rugs.
Lillian did an outstanding presentation on “The Black Count” and the Dumas family. Mary Jean shared her excitement on “The Count of Monte Cristo”. I know I have the book SOMEWHERE. Simpson Library in Mechanicsburg will have their book sale Friday, Feb. 13, 6-8 P.M. for members, Sat. Feb. 14, 9-2 P.M. and Sun. Feb. 15, 1-3 P.M.
Cheryl asked about a new book by the reclusive Harper Lee. Came home and there was a blurb on my blogs about a new book in July “Go Set A Watchman” by Harper Lee written in the 1950’s. Keep an eye out for it. Will probably have a great deal of interest. Carol L was unable to attend, but recommended “Florence Gordon” by Brian Morton. Disappointed she missed the group after having enjoyed the book. Looking forward to reading “The Good Lord Bird” for March.
