Book Club


Our book for the month of October was Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

You can read about the fun we had talking about this book on a rainy dreary cold afternoon HERE on facebook.

Our next book is Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart.

This is the first book in a series and what we have heard so far is that as soon as anyone in book club begins this book, they can't put it down.  We are already ordering book number 2 for people.  So if you are looking for a quick, good read check this book out and then come talk about it with us the Monday after Thanksgiving!

Our next book club is November 28 at 1pm.  Anyone is welcome!  Bring a dish to pass and be ready to talk about the book!
