DECEMBER READING GROUP UPDATE









In December, all manner of different things take place during my reading group meetings: a special outing to a restaurant, a potluck dinner at my house, voting on our favorite book of the year, wild book exchanges, and even sometimes literary games. I have already made chocolate pie for a group this past Sunday and I am making another one for tomorrow night. Time to eat, drink, and be merrily literary! But we also read and discuss a book...usually.

  2. How exciting, Linda. December reading is fab. I particularly like John Irving. I'm looking forward to reading those book reviews.

    2. Please accept my apologies! You make me think of another reader. The same day I posted a message on her blog and I called her Judy.

    3. That is delightful and funny. No apology required. You gave me my first laugh of the day!

  3. No bookish parties for me and our lone book group seems to be silently dissolving. :-(

    Great book choices again this month!

  5. Yep. Headed to a book club xmas gathering tonight at a posh restaurant. We will discuss The Beauty of Humanity Movement, a quiet but interesting read. set in Hanoi. You're doing 2 Patchett books for separate groups? Overdose? The Coates book is in-your-face, full-on, tell-me-what-you-think! Glad I got to it though. Enjoy your groups & pie!

    1. Hope you had fun tonight. I actually read Commonwealth last month. Even so, it would be hard for me to OD on Patchett. The pie was out of this world.
