Summer Book Club

As you know, I am a bookworm.

To this day, my cousin makes fun of me for climbing up our front yard tree for an afternoon read when she visited us over the summer. (Wait. She teases me for crocheting in that tree. Fortunately, I don't recall it quite that way, so let's just say I was reading.  Selective memory is a wonderful gift).

While living in Chattanooga, I would make a quick drive up the mountain and sit on the wall at Signal Point, engrossed in the latest read. The view beyond my book was breathtaking and the gentle breeze inspired me to stay a while.

Now, I'll snuggle up on the couch, the porch or next to my honey with eager eyes, scanning the page with anticipation for what happens next.

Ahhh, I still love a good book.
This summer I joined a book club small group through our church.  A group of women, gathered over good food and chatting the night away about plot, characters and life application is just what this bookworm needs. 

First up, we are reading Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers.  I must admit, I finished it a tad early and cried myself to sleep - an absolutely beautiful story!

Do you have any suggestions for our next book?  I recently enjoyed The Help by Kathryn Stockett and can't wait for the movie in August.

Have a great weekend and a happy 4th!

  1. I just finished Redeeming Love tonight. I cried too. I've been looking for a good book club forever. No one I know seems interested in reading (or at least reading what I like to read), and even fewer care to discuss it. I'm jealous!

  2. Oh, I forgot my book suggestions. Eat, Pray, Love is next on my list to read. Then Anthem by Ayn Rand. Let me know if you end up reading either of them.

  3. I love the book Redeeming Love!!!! Sooo good!!!! If your interested in a biography. I finished Jungle Pilot by Russel Hitt, it is really good. It is about Nate Saint, who was one of the five missionaries killed by the Auca tribe in Ecuador in 1956. He was the pilot. It's so good!
