I switched to K because it used to be my nickname.  So when I just responed to a post it was signed Karen.  I didn't do that.

I enjoyed the day I had all 9 grands over for breakfast.  There was a choice of 3 differnt items.  The littlest ones get fed first.  I had help from the oldest.  It was fun.

The scouts (through their church) have a tea party at the end of their year.  This year we are encouraged to write a religious poem.  It took me about 30 minutes to write one about Noah's Ark.  I do love animals.

When I joined the book club one of the ladies gave me a list of all the books they've read.  Many I had already read so I deleted them from my list. When I put books on hold I add one or two from the club not knowing what I'll be reading.  The Lady and the Unicorn and Stones from the River are outstanding.  I don't look to see what they are about so I get very surprised.  This is the fun of a book club.  You get to read books that you might never else wise pick up.

Have a great day.  Stay cool and safe.

K

When I saw the title "The Lady and the Unicorn" I thought of a book that I read many years ago about how right -brained children learn differently from left-brained children. I used the material in it one year because I had 14 left handed students in my class! It actually worked! I will get those books you recommended. Are they on the Kindle or hardback?

Brenda, I've been a member of four book clubs.   The current one and the one in VA before I moved to GA are awesome.  Each person has a turn to pick out a book for the club to read.  I've read many good books as one member said, "I never would have chosen this book, but I'm really glad I read it."  Once in a great while you get a book that nobody likes.  My choice in two month I haven't read so I don't know how it will be.  

For this club we cannot choose romances and it has to be available on audio because one of our members is blind. 

The two bad ones were 1.) We only read books that one the Nobel prize.  Some members hogged the floor and wouldn't let anybody comment. 2.) We held a meeting at this woman's house.  She was good friends with the other members-shopping, lunch, movies-and after about 5 minutes she'd switch to her daughters wedding plans.

I suggest you try a group and see how it goes.  You don't have to commit to it.  You can finds some awesome books to read.

I thought about joining a book club. I've read a lot about how fun they are. Did you join one that is local or an on-line club?
