Here it is... the first book club assignment

So.. a few posts back, I was mentioning that I wanted to start a book club. I think it is a great way to get to know friends better, while stretching that mind!!

So, here are the rules. I will pick the first book title, then you must all run out and get it from your library (or you can purchase it, but that is highly frowned upon for the budget conscious!!) then we will have 1 month to finish it. At that time, we will plan a get together (coffee anyone?) and meet to discuss. This is a very cultural and respectable idea... and you all had better do it!!

Leave me a comment to let me know you are in, and we will get started. I am sure my book club will generate as much buzz as Oprah's so you'd better get your book!!

And the title is..... The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger... it is a long one, so get to reading folks. :)

Hmmm I hate to pass up a good book or even more a good discussion about a good book but I'm concerned about the length of this book. I'm currently reading another book that might take me at least a few weeks to finish so I know I would not be able to finish this one in a months time.

Check back with me next month and I will try to jump in.
HAPPY READING!!

Sarah said...

It doesn't matter to me!! I am re-thinking the whole 500 + pages! :)

Eat, Love and Pray is on your book list.. and that one looks really interesting. Have you already started reading it??

Sarah said...

Erin... you can still join it!! :) We can have a national book club... come on over. :)

TK said...

I'm about half way through that one. I started it awhile ago and have already read two other books since picking that one back up. It would be an interesting one to discuss plus maybe it would be the motivation I need to finish it.

Hi Sarah,
I am interested! Let me know what you decide on.

How come you didn't tell me in person about the book club? And what are we reading?
