Book Club


For our October Book Club we discussed Frankenstein.  The overall feeling of this book seemed to be "I would NEVER have read this, I'll never reread it, but I am glad that I did read it."

Anyone who has read the entire book of Frankenstein may agree with this.  This book brought all kinds of discussion and if you click the book above, it will take you to the annotated version that many of the book clubbers read.

It was also a celebration day!  We celebrated five years as a book club!  Julie, who has read every single book and we think has even attended every book club, was awarded some dark chocolate.

Our next book club will be on Monday, November 28 at 1pm.  We will be discussing the book Go Set a Watchman.  If you would like to order a copy you can HERE.  This book is probably going to bring all kinds of conversation.  Join in that conversation with us!  We'll meet at 1pm to eat some food and talk about this book, To Kill A Mockingbird and probably The Mockingbird Next Door as well.
