APRIL READING GROUP UPDATE









All good reading group selections this month and I have already read two of them! A lucky break because I plan to tackle a long book or two on my own this month, one of which is Joyce Carol Oates' latest, A Book of American Martyrs clocking in at over 700 pages!

What books are your reading groups reading in April. If you are not in a reading group, what have you read lately that might make for a good group discussion?

  1. I hope you continue to enjoy your book club reading and good luck with the epic A Book of American Martyrs! I have not long finished Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster for my church's book club, but we're now on a break for Easter.

  2. Hello Judy. I'm back home. I hope you're okay...I see you're enjoying yourself, this is a great your selection of books. As you know, I'm not part of a reading group. I've read so far in April one book - Behind Closed Doors by P.A. Paris. And I started reading Heat and Dust by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala.
    Have a great week!

  4. It's so lucky that your book clubs select books you have already read as you have more time for other books that interest you.

    1. So lucky! Because I crave the company of readers in real life and the discussion, but I often want to read stuff that none of them would read or like. I guess a good balance is coming into being.

  5. Some interesting selections this month! I have a copy of To the Bright Edge of the World which I'm hoping to read soon. I enjoyed Eowyn Ivey's first book, The Snow Child.

    1. Indeed they are! I loved The Snow Child but this new one seems like the book Ivey was meant to write. And it is historical!

  6. Haven't you read three of them? Groff, Ivey and Nguyen? I have read Nguyen and listened to the Groff book. I'm looking forward to Ivey! My book group is kaput for now, but there is another one in town going to discuss Jim Harrison's Dalva. Also I'm reading The Sense of an Ending at the moment, which might be good for discussion, and I just saw the movie of it. who knew!

    1. Actually yes, I had read the Ivey by the time I posted this. It's complicated. I think you will love the Ivey novel. Are you going to check out the other reading group? One of my groups is going to read The Sense of an Ending in a month or so. I am going to hold off on the movie until I read it.
