We will have an open discussion all day for your comments about the book, the recipes or both.    If you try any of the recipes, I could post your photos of them!

Devil's Food Cake Murder by Joanne Fluke will be the book to read for February 25.

Anyone can join the discussion!  All are welcome!

Scones and Bones is waiting for me to pick it up from the library :) I mixed up the order of the books from the first list and ended up getting Devil's Food Cake instead of the Crunch Time :( Oops. I'll be ready for the next discussion though!

Hi sueb, Can't participate in Scones & Bones - our library does not have it in circulation but I am in the process of reading Devil's Food Cake Murder. There are several recipes in there and I will be making a couple of them and taking pictures. Do I need your email address or how do I go about getting those to you? TIA

I should be able to pick up Scones & Bones next week! My library had to get it from a different site. I'm excited about it! I'm so glad you have your own blog now!

Since some of you are having a time getting the book from the library, did you know about an inter-library loan system? When I want a book that my library doesn't have, I fill out a form. They check with other libraries, and get it to my library. When I check it out, it is like checking it from my own library, but there is a small charge. It's not as expensive as buying a book, however! I will keep you informed of the next selections. Being so new to a blog, I just wanted to make sure that this showed up!

You're blue! Our county doesn't have a decent library and we have to pay to use the others :( Still the book club sounds like a lot of fun!!

I cant participate unfortunately.. My library doesnt have these books.. Neither do other libraries in close proximity... Maybe next time.. :(

My charge for the library loan from another site is only 25 cents. I dreamed about the Book Club last night! How's that for interacting in my life!?

I will post the email address to send the pics to when I know how to take your photos and put them on my blog. I need help with this project!

Sueb - Sorry you felt it necessary to remove my comment on your AR book club blog. I meant no harm in my comment by saying I am blessed to have access to 13 different libraries here in our NC Northwestern Regional Library System. If my local library does not carry a specific book (i.e.,Scones & Bones), I have the convenience of going online and checking to see if the book is in circulation within our system. If it is available, the system will acknowledge my request, the book will be sent to the library of my choice at No Charge - No Paperwork just a convenience and a benefit. I realize other library systems are not structured this way and I am truly sorry others cannot experience this. Again, I'm puzzled as to why you felt the sharing of my opinion concerning this blessing should be deleted. Then again, being able to delete others comments is ONE of the many benefits of being a supporting member.

Shearone- please accept my apology! I didn't mean to delete your posting! I'm glad you have a way to get many books from libraries in the area! I hope you choose to read some of the selected books.
Feb. 2, 2012 3:25 pm
I really want to share in the book club but doesn't look like I'll be able to this go around.If anyone can do this you can.:)

sueb - Thanks for the explanation. I just was baffled as to what I could have said wrong and I wanted to make sure that I did not repeat the offense. I am reading the Devil's Food Cake Murder and there are several interesting recipes in there. One thing I've already discovered from the book and that is if someone is on a diet - don't read this book. lol I believe Joanne Fluke could write about MUD and make it appetizing! Have a good day and happy reading!

I started Scones and Bones today. I am already enjoying it. Congrats on going blue!
Feb. 4, 2012 10:04 am
I went the library today and it was suppose to be in today but it didn't make I will be getting it over the next couple of days.
Feb. 4, 2012 3:04 pm
I finished Scones and Bones. I could not get the first book so I started reading Scones and bones. I will not spoil it and tell you so you'll have to wait!!! Sueb, can you list the next 2 books after the Devil's Food cake Murder?

About Me
Married and mother
My favorite things to cook
New England style food--vegetarian baked beans and brown bread. For Christmas, we need Kringla, and rosemary fudge. Valentine's Day isn't the same without cinnamon hearts, clove hearts, and peppermint hearts (these are all cream cheese mints). For Thanksgiving we use my great grandmother's plum pudding recipe to make figgy pudding.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, for each batch of cookies that are baked, 1/2 dozen go into the freezer. On Christmas, we assemble all the 1/2 dozens on a platter. It's a wonderful variety! The kids want 2 dozen of each kind of candy saved!
My cooking triumphs
New recipes! We've (the family) all won at state fairs. We love to come up with new ideas, then experiment!
My cooking tragedies
When I was called to the hospital because of a family emergency, I forgot to turn off the stove while cooking chicken. I returned home to a house that smelled awful! That was just a little while before overnight guests arrived! Another time, when I was canning sweet pickles, I had 7 quarts of hot sticky pickles in glass jars come crashing to the floor. Talk about a mess!
