Right now I am all about Bill Bryson "A Walk in the Woods" and "The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid" My son is getting ready to hike the Appalachian Trail so the first book is getting ME ready for it mentally! Plus Bryson makes me laugh. For years and years, The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett was my #1 favorite - I knew about it LONG before Oprah lol! I am reading "Crime and Punishment" right now by Fydor Dostoyevsky - I read Anna Karenina by Tolstoy last year - I'm telling you....these Russian authors all could have used some happy pills - but I do love them. As you can see, I am mainstream - nothing too original - which is why I love book clubs! Love being exposed to all kinds of books.
Hi ladies! I've been out of touch with this Book Club and have missed the books and the conversations....not to mention the smell of that divine pizza place! See you in November!!!!!
I think Abiah and the other organizers came up with a winner and I am grateful for their brilliance!
