It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme, hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
What am I reading?
Eclipse. It's taking me much longer than it should. It's not that I don't like it, it's good. There is just a whole lot of teenage angst , and I guess I'm not in the mood. I want to go see the movie tho, so I have to finish it, which I will do in the next day.
Then I'm on to either "The Passage" by Justin Cronin (here is a link to a video interview from the author on Good Morning America-- great pictures of Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows!)
or "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larrson, which everyone who's anyone has read, but me. That's me...always a day late!
**after watching the video interview, I am going for The Passage.
I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and shout about how great my bookclub is! As I have mentioned, I have more than one bookclub and I love them "all", but today, I am talkin' 'bout my peeps from "Totally Lit".
Okay, yeah, peeps. I know I'm too old, but I just like sayin' it. Peeps. My posse`, my gal-pals. However you say it, we are a group of women who love our book club!
Most of us....altho, not all of us.....are over 50 now. There are a couple of daughters who have joined the group, and it is really fun to have that "young mother" or "young-grad-school" point of view. It keeps us from getting "old".
And yes, we do love our bookclub--- we've been around for the past 8 years, and while I know that's not really a long time in a book club lifespan, we've seen a lot of changes in our lives. Mostly good, but some bad, and while Our primary goal is to read and discuss books, we are always "there" for each other to. Just wait till next month's meeting. There will be a SURPRISE! I can't wait.
This evening, we were discussing "The Irresistible Henry House" in my backyard. And having wine and cheese.

(can you spot the difference? One picture with me and one with my daughter in law)
We all are not here. I don't know that we've ever been all together at a meeting.
We might be way too big for a good book discussion if we were.
And then....random shots of us throughout the evening, enjoying our discussion, our wine and our friends!
(I love them!)
I have a hummingbird nest up there....if you look, you can see Jolina looking up!
