Good Stuff

I still can't believe we have been meeting as a group for over a year. What started out as a whim has turned into a full-blown commitment to all these great people interested in reading cutting-edge kid lit. Thank you all for enriching my reading life and social life!

Eleanor and Park by Raibow Rowell was a great read. I urge all members to try to squeeze it in somehow. Full of romance, acceptance, culture clash, need, hope... All that good stuff that makes a great ya novel. Next book is Counting by 7s. OK, I read it super fast cuz it is also a Mock Newbery selection at BNS. I loved it--but as an adult... Will a kid get the nuance--the neuroses? Can't wait to discuss.

Hope you can all make it to Book Lovers Night At Lily!! It's a great way to support a local business and find great stuff for yourself and others on your holiday gift list. Trust me. Shopping with friends is sooooo fun. Especially when it involves wine.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Sending you love and good chher.

Next meeting: January 6 at 7:30. Location?
