Another great year for food - erh I mean book club
This weekend was the first 2012 meeting of the Brewed Book Club. We decided to turn over a new leaf; to have a new year with more food - no wait! more books for everyone.
Um, Yeahhhh. We are still really a food club with a reading problem.
The Best of Me was deemed predictable, especially for those who had read other Sparks books. At some point, it seems fairly certain Sparks was or knew someone who was spurned by an over-bearing mother. It was an enjoyable read, it just wasn't a great read.
To end the night we picked our next book and devised a new method for presenting book choices. Each month will belong to a letter of the alphabet. In February, come with an A book - either by title, author or content. (The Art of Racing in the Rain or The Scarlet Letter both apply). We will then read an A book for March and present B books for the next selection. It may not translate well in the blogosphere but it sounded like great fun in the meeting!
At any rate, our next book is A Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James
Our next club meeting will be 2/24 at 7pm hosted by the Slaughter's. As always, if you would like to join virtually just shoot me a note and we will set something up.
Until then - Happy Reading!
