this is sueb guest posting on Scotdog’s blog.Come and join the new book club! Participate when you can, as often as you can! You can participate on several levels.
First, a list of books will be posted. Each book will have something to do with food but it won't be a cookbook. You could read the book to get new recipes. You might be inspired to create your own new recipes based on the theme of the book.
Second, you could comment on the book. You might read the book, knowing that you have enjoyed the author's other books. We might explore things like character development, plot progression or other literary features.
Anyone can get the book, and share their opinions.
Every two weeks, we will make comments about a particular book. If you have read the book, fine! If you haven’t, you might be inspired to after reading the comments that are posted. If a recipe interests you enough to try it out, we would like you to share
that experience. We will link your photo to the book comments!
On the specific date of the “discussion,” we will post a comment post. Feel free to express your opinions of the book to be discussed. If you are not able to read a book in a two week time frame, the next one will also be posted. Join when you can, leave your
comments, and let's see if this inspires you to serve up a new recipe!
Hopefully, you will find these books at your local library. Others you may have to purchase or borrow to be on the same page we are! Feel free to suggest books that might be of interest to other AR buzzers.
This book club may change and evolve due to the participation of those who are interested. Please let us know what direction you envision this going!
The first book is
Crunch Time, by Diane Mott Davidson. This may be short notice, but can you read it by the end of January?
On Saturday, January 28, we will have our first on-line book club meeting. Come and go, post as you can during the day. If you feel that we should set a time during that particular day, let me know!
Book #2 is
Scones and Bones by Laura Childs. This will be discussed on February 11.
Book #3 is
Devil's Food Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke. This will be discussed on February 25.
