What we're about

If asked what is your favorite thing to do---would reading a book be your answer?

Do you love to go to the library? Get stuck by the books at the grocery store ---(nope, not going to give in and buy one since you have a stack at home you still need to read?) Ever read a book twice and hey, liked it the second time too? When you read does it bug you to read trilogies or series out of order? Do you listen to books on tape because reading in the car would be too dangerous? Ever miss an exit/turn because you were so engrossed in the book playing? Hate abridged books… (why on Earth would you not read or listen to the whole thing?) Will you read just about anything, any genre as long as it’s fiction?

Well you’re at the right place.

If I have enough interest I’d like to start a book club in the Mobile area. We will read any genre. Which could include Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, Short Fiction, Westerns, Historical Fiction, Thriller/Suspense and all the sub-genres in each. How fast we read will depend on the group…if I didn’t have to work I could read a book a day…but since I’m not independently wealthy that’s not going to happen anytime soon. So we will pace the reading and meetings for the group on a consensus.
Hopefully I’ll hear from some other avid readers in the area…. And we can determine a day and time for our first meeting.
As an aside, I’d like to see this develop into a serious group… for instance if we were to read mysteries, maybe we could delve into the differences between each style. Just a thought…..

Hope to hear from you soon.

August Read: The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Satori Coffee House

The Silent Patient- Two people, filled with long-held and covered-up secrets, one, Maggie Stinson, who is about to retire from her job as a hospice social worker, and the other, Israel McKenzie, who is “retiring from life” because he is dying, cross paths and find themselves on opposite sides of the question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” As Maggie tries to help Israel repair the scattered pieces of his broken past, she finds herself having to face her own long-buried demons. But what the two of them discover is a secret that has been hidden from them their whole lives, a secret that once discovered changes both of them forever. The Last Patient is a story about regret, truth, and redemption. David Johnson, author of the best-selling Tucker series and The Woodcutter’s Wife brings us another of his trademark “books with heart.” The Last Patient is a book that will leave you thinking long after you’ve finished reading it. Plenty of copies at the Library paper and audio, as well as on Kindle.

September Read: A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler

Satori Coffee House

A Spool of Blue Thread- “It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon. . . . ” This is how Abby Whitshank always describes the day she fell in love with Red in July 1959. The Whitshanks are one of those families that radiate an indefinable kind of specialness, but like all families, their stories reveal only part of the picture: Abby and Red and their four grown children have accumulated not only tender moments, laughter, and celebrations, but also jealousies, disappointments, and carefully guarded secrets. From Red’s parents, newly arrived in Baltimore in the 1920s, to the grandchildren carrying the Whitshank legacy boisterously into the twenty-first century, here are four generations of lives unfolding in and around the sprawling, lovingly worn house that has always been their anchor. Copies at the Library including audio; plus Kindle.
