This month's read is "The Quiet Girl" by Peter Høeg

Kaspar Krone is a world-renowned circus clown, and a man in some deep trouble. Drowning in gambling debt and wanted for tax evasion, Krone is drafted into the service of a mysterious order of nuns who promise him reprieve in return for his help safeguarding a group of children with mystical abilities—abilities that Krone also shares. When one of the children goes missing, Krone sets off to find the young girl and bring her back, making a shocking series of discoveries along the way.

    My birthday tomorrow and my hubby's taking me out. See you all next month! BTW I couldn't finish this book. I feel the same as Pat - hard book, not enjoyable, didn't "get it" at all.

    I have a scheduling conflict. I won't be there Tues.

    I did not and will not finish this booak. I read, at this stage in my life, for pleasure and didn't find this read to be pleasurable. With that said, I do plan on joining the group for dinner as I truly enjoy each and everyone.

    Anyone brave enough to be the moderator for this book? Remember, you get to bring your list of books you would like the group to read, and one will be chosen. How cool is that? :)

    Apologies, something has come up. Enjoying the challenge of this book....half way through and I think I get it! And the synaesthesia.

    I haven't read the book, but I may skim it before Tuesday.

    I understand that this month's book is a different kind of read than we're used to. Please remember that you don't have to have read the book in order to come. Please come anyway and enjoy a good meal with a special group of people - those who share the love of reading and the world of books. :)
