Morning Meanderings…. An Excellent Night With The Bookies and a book that made my mouth fall open!
Good morning! Its Wednesday! Wednesday means many things to me… it is the middle of the work week for one… it is also the day before our fall book sale. Yes, you got that, there is another Brainerd book sale and I will be there bright and early hours before it opens doing what I do… socializing with fellow bookish people about books…. BLISS!
As a Friend Of The Library, they asked me this year to help work the sale, which I will do on Friday, however explained to them I could not work the day before because for set up because I am loving the waiting in line too much.
Last night was the Bookies meeting at my house and our 11 year Anniversary. We started in August of 2001. I am still shocked. I never knew I would be still reviewing and chatting books with this AWESOME group, but I am…. and I love it. Our book was The Crying Tree by Naseem Rahka, a book I finished on Monday evening and it left my mouth hanging open in parts that made me love the book even more. Because? It shocked me. It surprised the heck out of me and some in my book club seen it coming, but others like me… did not.
Our discussion was wonderful. We had twenty questions… I had to narrow them down because we talked each question out 5 to 10 minutes. It was a wonderful and deep discussion about family dynamics, kids in the 80′s compared to kids today, forgiveness, or more accurately – the willingness – or even the ability to forgive.
Any hoo…. I will put that review up tomorrow (Thursday). Later I am hoping to put up the review of Saving Sammy, Curing The Boy Who Caught OCD. It really was a fascinating true story that I can not wait to share with you.
Ok… off to work so they do not hang me by my toes….. “Sheila, why are you late today?” Well….
I was blogging again.:
Have a super day everyone!!!! Have you read anything lately that made your mouth drop open? I want to know about these books!
