Coming off Hiatus

Well, the book club leader moved out of town, and the half the club seems to be on summer vacation, so it remains to be seen if and when the next selection will be announced and a date set.  The next meeting, if it happens, might not take place until September.  And of course my participation is dependent on both the selection and the date.  (For all I know, I will have joined or started a new book club by then!)

In the meantime, I've been reading.  A LOT.  And I'm eager to share what I've read.

To that end, I'll be putting up posts discussing titles I've read.  The posts will be labeled "independent reading."  The things I read will vary in genre and reading level but will be not "younger" than Middle Grade (pretty good explanation here).  I'm in the middle of two pretty good--and very different--books at the moment.

Is anyone reading anything good for the summer?  Feel free to share in the combox.

I'm just finished Bringing up Bebe and Year of Magical Thinking. Would love to hear what your group is thinking about. I soooo wish I was part of a book club.

Red Humor--hey, thanks for stopping by! I have wanted to read YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING for a while now.
I think the club settled on THE CHAPERONE by Laura Moriarty. I don't know if I'm going to read it in time, as it is nearly impossible to get from the library. I might luck out on audio.

Any luck with a local library or bookstore for a book club? You never know. Twitter's not the same interaction-wise, but a lot of people participate in a book club that way.
