I belong to a monthly book club that has been meeting for the last five years. We have fourteen members ranging in age from mid thirties to mid eighties. What surprises me the most about this group is how close we have become as a unit. The books elicit feelings the ladies share with our group. We have laughed and in many cases we have cried over a topic that was close to our hearts. Because of this community of readers I will not miss a meeting. These ladies have become a part of my life and they are important to me.
So far in 2012 we have read:
Jeremy Finken and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass
The Room by Emma Donoghue
In March we will read The Back of Beyond by Barbara Bickmore and in April we will read The Friday Night Kniting Club by Kate Jacobs.
