Book Talk: Get to reading
We had our first meeting of the Northwest Reading Roundtable yesterday and the book suggestions were flying.
We titled the meeting “Meet and Greet” and everyone was asked to bring a favorite book read over the summer. The books varied with all-time-favorites mingling amongst the latest in (mostly mystery) serials and hardscrabble memoirs. It was a fun afternoon and most left with a title to read next.
Story swapping during a book club meeting is one of my favorite activities. One never knows where the lead to a fabulous book will come from. Reading friends are a great source, too. They usually know you and your tolerance levels for certain things like foul language and steamy love scenes.
