June 2013

So this has not worked out the way I had hoped. Obviously.

I am currently reading the book City of Bones, as I'm wanting to see the film version that is coming out this summer. If you are reading it, or would like to read it currently and chat about it, or if you're in the Thunder Bay area and want to see the movie with me when it gets a release here; leave me a comment on this post.

April 6th

Well, since there was a lack of interest for the latest selection, there will NOT be a local get together for book club.

Which sort of is okay given the weather here has gotten bad again and I'm on a cane, and would be walking to the get together.

I'll be back later in the week with the selection for April.

Change of date

I know I had posted in the last post that the book local meeting for March's selection Beautiful Creatures,  would be this weekend,  but I was unaware that it's Easter weekend.   So, with that said, the March get together will actually be a week later on the first Sunday of April.  Which will make it April 7th 2013.
Again, sorry I didn't check the holiday calendar before I posted the original meeting date.

If you are planning on taking part, please either leave me a comment on here before 11pm on  the 5th of April so that I can do a head count.  Thanks.

March 2013 selection

Continuing with the theme of book to movie, (which is what we are doing for 2013)  the March selection is Beautiful Creatures  by Kami Garcia/Margaret Stohl.

The local meeting will be on March 31st.  Please leave a comment either on this post or on the Goodreads  Book Club page as to if you will be coming or not on or before the 27th of March 2013.

And remember, if you missed the local meeting, the discussion is still going. Just leave your comments on the Goodreads page or here on the blog. (or the movie blog)

Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday.

Dec 27th 2012

I was going to wait till after the new year to put up a post about book club, but after a situation on the group's page on facebook, I am posting this now.

There have been a few new interests in starting up again on a monthly basis, so Feb 2013 selection is going to be American Psycho.   Thought it might be interesting to go with a theme for a while.  Books that were turned into movies.

This is one of the selections for the book to movie themed movie club I'm part of as well. More on that here

till later

Rolling back for October 2012

This seems to get a lot of starts and stops.
Everyone has given up, I've given up but ... I'm going to get back at this.  You might have read what I think was my last post on here, way back in the late winter/early spring; about my being off with a knee injury.
I still have one more surgery to go later this month. 

Would still like to do the books that were selected for Feb-July.

1- Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
2-Under the Tuscan Sun
3-Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass

and to add American Psycho,  Don Quixote, Club Dumas.

I know, it's a really mixed bag of treats here, but the books are still sitting on my shelf un-touched. 

So if anyone is up for this... just leave me a comment.
