Neglected Blog but Great Times

I don't think there are many readers that read our blog, so it has been neglected for a few months. Tina's camera was having trouble downloading pictures, so our monthly picture has been missing for a little while.

First off, for next months book selection, we have chosen, "Gone for Good" by Harlan Coben.

This month, we had a huge treat. We spoke to Debbie Macomber on the phone. She was so upbeat and friendly and had great stories about her writing career. She was a real joy to talk with.

I am still amazed that our measly little book club has had the opportunity to speak to so many famous authors. We have been together for less than three years and I believe we have spoken to 4 authors that held the number one spot on the New York Times Bestsellers list. That is pretty impressive!!!

Our list:

Juliette Fay

Liz Rosenberg

Ron Hall

Denver Moore

Kathryn Stockett

Barbara Delinsky

Debbie Macomber

All I can say is WOW!!!

October Meeting - Exciting News

First of all, we have chosen our books for the next two months. During October, we will be reading "The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes". It is a great book with lots of twists.

During November, we will be reading Hannah's List by Debbie Macomber. The great news is that we will be able to talk to Debbie at our December 7th meeting. What a treat! She will be calling us, so make sure to mark your calendar for this great event.

What a nice early Christmas present!

August Meeting

After much discussion, we chose our book for this month. This looks like it will be a little different from some of our previous choices.

A big thank you to Laura Rogers for making name tags.

July Meeting

Here is the book for our next meeting. Look Again by Lisa Scottoline. Carolynn made a great suggestion that we ought to start picking books from the Target Readers Club. These books have been chosen specifically for book clubs and are available to be purchased at Target.

Hope you enjoy!

June Meeting

For our next book, we have chosen "Though Waters Roar", by Lynn Austin.

We discussed reading a Debbie Macomber book in the near future. I have contacted her regarding her availability, but I have not heard anything back, yet. Keep your fingers crossed.

If anyone wants to read a really good book for next month and lead the discussion, I am sure all of your fellow Fa La La's would LOVE you.

May Meeting - CHANGE of Plans

The girls that met for the May meeting decided that we were going to stick to our plan of only reading books that someone has already read.

So, the book for this month has changed. We are now going to read "Summer Blowout" by Claire Cook.

Looks like an easy summer read. Enjoy!

April Meeting

Our fearless leader is having trouble with her camera software. Although we have taken pictures for the past couple of months, they haven't made it to the blog. Hopefully they will be coming soon.

We had a great discussion about Still Alice this week. Very interesting and I think the big thought that hit everyone was, could I be next? As I was reading the paper yesterday, I saw an obituary for a fried that I knew 20 years ago from church, that I had lost touch with. It said she died of early Alzheimer's at 57. It made me rethink our discussions from this week and wonder how her life played out the past few years, and how her family had handled it.

We have chosen the books for the next two months.

For our May meeting, we will be reading "Ines of my Soul".

For June, we will be reading, "The Postmistress". Enjoy!
