Had a terrific meeting discussing Orphan Train. We have a wonderful book club full of creative smart people.
The book we are now reading Cuckoo's Calling is a great old fashioned detective story which I enjoy on these cold winter evenings. I am Malala was great - if you want an understanding of the Taliban & how they became so powerful it is definitely worth your time. My favorite book this year "The Constellation of Vital Phenomenon." Still my fav! Nothing has come close.

Resurrection 2013

Well, on this dreary Saturday I have decided to resurrect my old blog. Is anyone out there reading it? I will try again to use this to communicate with my World's Greatest Book Club!!

At our last meeting at Blue Willow, Valerie recommended the following:

The Art Forger (reading for our October meeting)
The Husband's Secret (reading for our November meeting)

My Mother's Secret (Holocaust)
Quiet - power of Introverts
Far Far Away - Young Adult
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Life after Life - by Atkinson
Where to go Bernadette
The Telling Room
Brain on Fire by Cahalan
The Care & Handling of Roses with Thorns by Dilloway
The Dressmaker by Alcott
The Rosy Project by Simsion (coming soon)

I'm in a Tarquin Hall mode right now. He is British living in India & writes somewhat humorous mysteries set in India. He gives a good insight to everyday Indian culture which I find fascinating.

BTW - I'm on Shelfari also if you ever wish to befriend me there.

Favorite books from Summer?
Hilary Mantel - Wolf Hall & Bringing up the Bodies
Anthony Marra - A Constellation of Vital Phenomenon (UNBELIEVABLE - hoping it is listed for Pulitzer or Booker)

Hope you are reading something good? E-mail me or post on my blog & let me know !!!
