I was thinking I would try something new here on the blog. You see, I and the majority of my love to read. And about this time last year I started a ladies book club. We get together every two months and discuss a new book. Each time someone in the group takes a turn choosing the book and place where we meet.
We are all pretty busy and some of the members are pretty voracious readers, so we have a handful of guidelines. Books must be written within the last five years. Nothing with more than five hundred pages. And it can’t be a book you have read before.
Since everyone has different tastes in books we have been all over the map in genres. And because these are books none of us have read before we have no way of knowing if we will like them or not. Some have been flops and some have been great successes. But we always have great discussions and enjoy the time with other intelligent women. We try not to be rigid or uptight about things. If someone doesn’t finish the book its not a big deal, life happen.
So that leads me to what I thought I would do. I want to share with all of you what we are currently reading, and perhaps come back and give you some of our thoughts on it. Maybe even hears some of yours. I want to try it out a few times. If it goes well I will keep doing it, if not it may just fade out.
But lets get started. We are currently reading, like the title says, Pierced by the Sun by Laura Esquivel. You can follow the Amazon link to find out more info on the book or to purchase it. I do believe it was a free Prime First book a couple of months ago, so its also possible some of you already have this book. And I am sure almost everyone knows this already, but for anyone who doesn’t, from the Amazon link you can find it not only in paperback but also for audible, on kindle, mp3, and several other formats.
The next time we meet is mid to late November. So look for a post in early December discussing the book a bit and announcing what the next book will be.
I would love to hear from you all. So leave me comments here or on my social media and let me know if you like this being here on the blog, or if you would rather I skipped it. Also do you participate in any book groups?
