Annual Bookclub Treat




I always make Christmas treat bags for my bookclub peeps. This year they got Second Cup Mulled Cranberry or Hot Apple Cider mix, biscotti, and dig the bookmark! It's based on Rory's "Reading is sexy" t-shirt from Gilmore Girls.








Here's what we read this year:


Women of the Silk Gail Tsukiyama

Love in the Time of Cholera Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Inheritance of Loss Kiran Desai

The Hanging of Angelique Afua Cooper

The Prince of Tides Pat Conroy (my pick and everyone loved it)

The Letter Opener Kyo MacClear

The Push and the Pull Darryl Whetter

The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor Sally Armstrong

The Double Bind Chris Bohjalian

You'd love mine. We meet at Chapters/Starbucks, and gossip after we talk about the book.

The 2009 selection is up and the debate begins March 2nd and ends March 6th.
Nicholas Campbell is one of the panelists... I love him!

I got my book order from the CBC Shop Friday. I'm starting with 'The Fat Woman Next Door is Pregnant'.

Oh no you dih-ant!
You didn't say "CBC" on this blog did you?

Better run for cover.

Now, Peter!
We have a bit of workplace rivalry with them, but I'll take a book recommendation from anyone.
