The Bookies 2010 Book and Queen Event
I am so proud of my book club. If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time you probably know that. Most of us have been together in this group for the past 7 or 8 years. A few of us, have been there the entire time – it will be 10 years of Bookies in August. That’s 120 book club meetings. That’s 120 book club book choices and 120 book club books read.
Every July we have a free read month. July is so busy in Minnesota, the weather is finally pretty reliable, people have weddings, and family gatherings, weekends at the lake, camping, fishing. grilling…. anyway, we do not have a mandatory read in July. Just read what you want and share at the event. And so, that being said, here is what The Bookies read and recommend :
Columbine by Dave Cullen – recommended by Sharon
Rise and Shine by Anna Quindlen - recommended by Kaydi
The Chesapeake Bay Series by Nora Roberts – recommended by Amy M
The House Of Dark Shadows Series by Robert Liparulo - recommended by Amy P (reading with her young teen daughter)
The Chronicles Of The Kings Series by Lynn Austin – recommended by Lori P
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer – recommended by Angie
What To Expect When You Are Expecting - recommended by Jodi (our going to be new mama member!)
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan – recommended by Jodi
We ate and laughed and talked books. What to read, what to skip…. We talked movies and summer plans. And we sat ina beautiful yard just enjoying the company.
Another great year and event – we crowned our new Queen Lori (see that picture in my morning post -it’s awesome!).
