Morning Meanderings…. Bookies annual FAVORITE book exchange
Tuesday evening of this week was our Bookies get together around our review of The Fate Of Mercy Alban by Wendy Webb. I am not sure why – but I did forget to take pictures of the food…
So…. picture this:
French onion soup with crunchy garlic bread
chicken breast tenderloin plain, and some with orange sesame sauce served with chicken broccoli rice
a pepperoni pasta salad
cole slaw salad
Some of the foods are out of a meal they had in the book on page 85.
I will tell you more about the book review later, but for now I want to focus after the review. This is our second year doing a favorite book exchange. The rules are:
1. The book should be a favorite of yours
2. You have read the book and LOVED it
3. put a post it note in the inside cover sharing why you loved this book and if you want it back or if it is to keep
4. Wrap up the book.
Then what we did was put the wrapped books on the floor and we each took a turn choosing a book, opening it and hearing why it was the givers favorite book. (That is my favorite part, listening to the given share why they loved a particular book).
This is such a great time. Now our task is to read the book we have chosen and talk about next month at our annual Queen event and potluck celebration. SO EXCITED!
As for life… I am busy working on the 5k that we are putting on this Saturday morning. I put 10 hours in yesterday and who knows what I will do today to make sure we are ready. Its good fun though – 116 registrants at the time I left work yesterday. Today I will help assemble the swag bags – t-shirt, water bottle – and yes, a book, Every Body Matters by Gary Thomas.
