Book Club

Ok, so I got caught up in the Twilight phenom. I met with a couple of friends over lunch and discussed the 4 books in the series. Then I watched the movie, The Jane Austen Book Club....so I bit the bullet and asked 20 friends on FB if they wanted to read a book with me and discuss it over coffee. Much to my surprise, 12 of them said yes! I mean, who knew? I picked a book that my Twilight friends said they would be interested in reading and that's how we chose the book. We are going to read 'Thorn in My Heart' by Liz Curtis Higgs. It is a historical type romance set in 1788 Scotland, but follows the storyline of Jacob and Esau, Leah and Rachel, from Genesis 25 & 27-29. I hope it is good, because I went ahead and bought the entire Scottish Lowlands series. Although this book has some biblical background, I have promised my friends that we will not always choose this type of book, afterall, I did just read 6 vampire books in a row. The books arrived from Amazon yesterday and I am excited to get them to their new owners. So I guess in about 4 weeks we'll get together over a cup o' Joe and have a little chat about our new tome.

Happy reading.
