book group

"It is but a small part that the average person contributes to improve mankind. My life has been simple, full of love, devotion, and service for my family. I might have thought mine a hard row to hoe had not the plants I cultivated responded so magnificently to the culture I gave them, made possible by our beloved America."
Annie Clark Tanner


the faces slightly vary from month to month
we have a special bond


we are each others
we are sisters
we love to read
talk
share


pretty much every month
except August and December


we gather and discuss
 always here at my home
seven P.M.


for the last eight years
seventy---eighty books later
together
and better for it

Wow. I'm impressed. I wish I had a list of those 78 books. Did you do reviews on any of them on this blog?

We also have a book club here. We usually stray from the book about 30 minutes into it and start reviewing life. I love it, either way.
