I have loved books and reading since I was a small child. I have never belonged to a book club, but think I would enjoy discussing and hearing other people's opinions on characters and plots. Some of the books I've read in the past year are; Holy Ghost Girl, Already Home, all three of the Stieg Larsson books, Holocaust Diaries, Fat, Forty and Fired, Time Travelers Wife, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
Atlas Shrugged. Although written years ago, it speaks to the lack of personal responsibility and the claim to the fruits of other people's labor that seems to prevail today.
I don't usually reread books, but one that I have read several times is "The Mirror", the first time-travel book I ever read. I love the character, Shay, and the peace she makes with herself when she is unable to return to her time.
I would probably take my Kindle in order to have a variety of choices.
My name is Becki Adcock. I am semi-retired and enjoy traveling, motorscooters, hiking, visiting National Parks, gardening, Words with Friends, Scrabble, meeting new people and reading.
The ladies were a funny, delightful group of women. This was my first meeting and I look forward to the next meeting.
