Summer Thoughts

Hope you are all well and enjoying your summer. Both reading groups had successful planning pot lucks and it seems we’re all set for the new season.

Please note, the Afternoon Book Group’s selection for Feb. has 2 titles. I have a used hardback book “Daughters” and the newer title is “Three Daughters”. The important name is the author CONSUELO SAAH BAEHR. It can be ordered on Amazon.

Have you been reading any good books this summer? Most of you know I really enjoyed “Boys in the Boat” by Daniel James Brown and can’t wait until Kathy’s review in March. I also read “The Little Paris Bookshop” by Nina George which reminded me a bit of  “The Elegance of the Hedgehog”. I’m re-reading it almost back to back. I bought Donna Leon’s “Through a Glass Darkly” for my Amtrak book on my way home. By page 20…”did I read this book already?”….by page 100….”I may have read this book…” and then comes the murder… “I DID read this book!” Oh well, it was an OK Amtrak read. “Station 11” is available at B&N. I’m trying not to read our book club selections too early. The new Harper Lee book is getting a great deal of publicity. It may be good for discussion next year.

Have a good summer. I miss the book group. Feel free to post recommendations.

Thanks, Bookhound
