Though lately I’ve been occupied with boobs, I’m shifting over by one letter.
I missed writing about the latest books from my online book club– but don’t miss reading them.
Room is the story of a boy who has lived all his life imprisoned in a small room with his kidnapped mother, a fictional account reminiscent of the Jaycee Dugard abduction.
The Kids are All Right is told from the individual perspectives of the four Welch kids, who were orphaned as teenagers when their dad in a car accident and their mom died of cancer.
I know, the scenarios sound grim; but the books aren’t. Both are well worth reading—-with much food for thought.
More food is in the upcoming book pick— The Earthbound Cook Cookbook by Myra Goodman. With a twist– Linsey Krolik of FromLeft to Write and Jane Maynard of This Week for Dinner cooked up a unique and wonderful idea to merge a book blog and a cook blog—two more words separated by one letter.
They also merged the virtual world with the real—by inviting Bay Area bloggers from both sites to a pot luck dinner. Each made a recipe from the book which we all shared tonight—this is my kind of book group.
Perfectly delicious. And perfect timing– since today the book club also starts a new feature—getting to know more about the members. I’m first— click here to read my interview.
