As most of you are aware, Marla has now moved from Austin to take up a new job in El Dorado, Arkansas. As someone who very much enjoyed this Book Club under Marla's leadership, I would like to thank her for doing a great job in setting it up and maintaining a fun, vibrant and always interesting selection of books to read and people to read them.
I wish her the very best in her new job and her new home.
Marla has kindly (possibly foolishly?) asked me to take over from her so I've agreed to give it a shot. I will need all the help I can get so all ideas/suggestions etcetera will be most welcome.
Our next meeting is scheduled for the 25th of this month when our subject matter will be Ken Follett's "Fall of the Giants". I had never read him before and must confess I've never much cared for him but that's the joy of the book club, you read books you may not otherwise read! Sometimes this creates pleasant surprises....
Look forward to seeing you all on the 25th!
