Hello once again, Book Club friends –


It is now six months since our last brunch and book sharing time.  How I miss those good times around the conference table!


I hope you are all well, reading more or less, depending on your schedules and moods.  But reading; do keep reading.  It has been good to hear from a few of you about books you have been reading over the summer. 


I have been dabbling in a wide variety of books, some fiction, and some non-fiction.  Sylvie (who has come to book brunch a few times) and I have been checking out various detective series.  She is currently reading Colin Cotterill’s Dr. Siri Paiboun series.  I checked out the Valentino mysteries by Loren D. Estleman (his latest, Indigo, is on the new books shelf). They are interesting, but so heavy on references to movies I had never heard of that I found them tiresome.


Yesterday I finally got my Inter-Library Loan copy of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, by Kim Michele Richardson.  Dawn and Irene had both recommended this book, and I can tell already that it’s a good read. 


I also brought home The Testaments, by Margaret Atwood, which was recommended long ago at book club, but never seems to be on the shelf when I look.  Well, now I have it, so it will be read after Troublesome Creek.  Two others from the new book shelf, which I had never heard of before and which I’ll try out:  Bronte’s Mistress, by Finola Austin and Sea Wife, by Amity Gaige.  I think my reading drought is over.  Move over, word search book, I’m reading again!


Here’s an idea:  the library now has two picnic tables with umbrellas outside the front door.  Would anyone be interested in a shortened, masked, socially distanced, sanitizer available book club get-together some day while the weather is still warm?  Let me know what you think. 


Best greetings to all of you.  Keep in touch.
