Third Tuesday Book Club


I orignally stated this blog would be about reading and so far I have discussed some travel and some cooking.  So...here's the reading part.
I joined a Book Club and we call ourselves the Third Tuesday Book Club.  Guess what!  We meet the Third Tuesday of each month in the afternoon.  There are eleven of us.  On the 12th month, we go out to lunch together at a really fancy restaurant and enjoy each others company.  (can't get away from the food!)
Our format is simple.  Each selects a book for her assigned month.  We go alphabetically so there is no confusion on whose month it is.  Here is what we are reading this year:
  1. The Guersney Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
  2. The $64 Tomato by William Alexander
  3. The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo by Stieg Larsson
  4. The Help by Katherine Stockett
  5. The Stars for a Light by Lynn and Gilbert Morris
  6. Once Upon a Town:  The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen by Bob Greene (not Oprah's Bob Greene)
  7. A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
  8. Kane and Abel by Jeffery Archer
  9. The Camel Club by David Baldacci
  10. The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
  11. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
There is quite a variety of genres and some fiction and nonfiction.  It should prove to be an interesting year.
Oh by the way...Each hostess must prepare one item for refreshment.  Only one is allowed.  Don't want this to become the read and eat club.  If you have an interest in the books, please let me know.  My favorite place to get the copies I need is http://www.paperbackswap.com/.
