Lots of news this week for our Meet Up group.
First, we had a lovely meet up this week at a relatively new restaurant in Mentor, Match Works Tavern. Dinner and drinks (1/2 off wine) were lovely and so was the group discussion. We were on & off the list of questions, elaborating on our own cultures, and comparing our childhood experiences vs. the author, which makes for a very exciting book review. I would say that for those that completed the book, the majority enjoyed the memoir but wouldn't rank it in our top 5.
Next on the agenda is the book lists. I've added two new books that were suggested by our memberhsip and highlighted them on the list in pink. You can find fresh book lists and descriptions under the 'More' tab and then select 'Files'. I also include this month's discussion questions for anyone who may be interested.
Then, we jumped into this month's book selection. I got lucky and picked my own selection, 'Breaking Night' by Liz Murray. I added it last year when the author was interviewed on the Diane Rehm show, however, the book was super popular and absolutely not available at any library. Now, we've got copies at Morley in Painesville, over 20 in the Cleveland Network, Kindle copies, $6 Amazon copies, and one in Mentor Library. Since we've grown to over 100 members, I hope there is plenty to go around!
Finally, I'd like to remind everyone that not only can you find our wonderful book club group, Divas de la Creme, on meetup.com, you can also link to us on goodreads.com. There are several members utilizing the GoodReads site to organize their entire library of books; read, to-read and currently reading. You also have the opportunity to follow your favorite author, post individual comments on any book that you've read, play the Never Ending Book Quiz and more. Please let me know if you can't find us!
I hope everyone has a great week and happy reading!
