    A great discussion of Cleopatra by the group. Ann did a fabulous job as facilitator and the timeline was very helpful.

    I did not like the book (but would have come to socialize) but I cannot attend because I have a legal outing and dinner in Portland with my new co-workers.

    I'm really struggling with the sentence structure she uses. My solution is to watch Cleopatra starring Elizabeth Taylor over the weekend. It's on Netflix streaming :-)

    Ladies,
    EVERYONE should come to book club Tuesday, whether or not you've read the book all the way through. Just please be considerate of those who did read, etc. during the book discussion. AFTER the book discussion, we will talk about the issues of difficulty with reading the books. We've all been there, so it should be a good discussion, and an important one as well. Bring your thoughts on the subject, including recommended solutions for what to do when this situation occurs. Remember...everyone had an opportunity to research and vote on the books for this year. If you are one of the participants who did so, thank you. If you're newer...your opportunity is coming soon. Can't wait to see you here! Looking forward to catching up with folks.

    Yes, a discussion of why one can't get involved in a book can be interesting.

  • Diane

    I am having the same problem as Margaret....can't get into the book....
