New Maeve Binchy!

Found the new Maeve at Costco for $13.49! Hurray! Also picked up another book that looked interesting.

I've joined Netter's book club!
I cheated on my first post... it's from this blog.

You did get it!
Can other people join? I'm a total book junkie. Just finished another. I think I've read 7 or 8 books this summer. That's a good summer!

Netter: I love Maeve Binchy. She's very easy on the head. Her books are just nice.

Karen: Netter put me on, so tell her you want in.

Karen~ I just need your email address so I can add you. My email address is on my profile page...drop me a quick line. The Blogger Book Club is open to everyone, all they have to do is ask.

DH~ I will have to see if they have any of her books at BJ's...I'm headed over there later.

Thanks Netter.

Book club, huh? Sounds like fun! :o) Karen let me read a Maeve Binchy book once - it was full of short stories...

Yah, Darlene hated it. As she should have. It really sucked.

Which one?

I can't remember the name of it, but it was a bunch of short stories and a fairly small book. I can't think of the name. I'll google her books and see...

I think it was called "This Year It will be Different". I could be wrong. It was fully of really downer Christmas stories.
Does that sound right, Darlene? If it rings a bell, let us know, Darlene.

Or maybe 'the Lilac Bus'. I was hoping I'd recognize the cover but today I've learned that Binchy changes her covers a lot.
I've read so many of hers and it was years ago.

Love Maeve Binchy too. You may also like Marian Keyes. Her books are written around the Walsh sisters each book deals with a different sister. The stories are sometimes sad, can be dark, witty and always funny.
Another favourite in the same vain is Victoria Clayton. I keep meaning to do a bit of a write-up on my reading blog about them however, summer got in the way...
