Our pick for January is Alphabet Weekends: Love on the Road from A to Z. From British author Elizabeth Noble (The Reading Group, 2005), this is a story of romance that revolves around an alphabet's worth of dates and climaxes on a trip to Las Vegas.
We'll meet again this month at Monte Cello's on Babcock Blvd. They've got tons of yummy food, so be sure to save some room for a bite to eat or dessert!

Here is a bit about the book:
Natalie and Tom have been best friends forever, but Tom wants them to be much more. When Natalie's longtime boyfriend walks out on her just when she thinks he's going to propose, Tom offers her a different and wildly romantic proposition. He suggests that they spend twenty-six weekends together, indulging in twenty-six different activities from A to Z, and at the end of that time Tom's convinced they'll be madly in love. Natalie, however, is not so sure.
As Natalie's touring the alphabet with Tom, her mother's going through her own romantic crisis—while Tom's unhappily married sister-in-law, Lucy, struggles with temptation. And over the course of six amazing months, three generations of passionate dreamers are going to discover that, no matter how clever they are, love—and life—is never as easy as A, B, C . . .
A former British publishing exec, Elizabeth Noble took a hiatus from the corporate world to have children, and while she was at it penned The Reading Group -- an instant bestseller about the trials and tribulations of a group of women who meet regularly to read and discuss books.
Hope you'll join us for a fun night in the New Year!
