I LOVED my book club in Tulsa. Second Saturdays at Borders with a Cafe Mocha and good conversation--it was often a monthly highlight in my life. I loved the fellowship of other women, and I was always inspired by how well-read the ladies were. I wanted to replicate it here.
Surprisingly, Megan and I were able to round up several ladies who were interested. We had our first meeting on Saturday, and since then, I've been contacted by three other women who want to take part! Everyone's tastes are different, but it looks like we have a pretty swell reading list. AND, there are movies for most of the books we are reading (and some movies that will be released in the next year!). If you're interested in reading along, here is our list:
March 2010—Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
April 2010—The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
June 2010—The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold July 2010—The Choice by Nicholas Sparks
August 2010—The Help by Kathryn StockettSeptember 2010—The Giver by Lois Lowry
October 2010—Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
November 2010—Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
December 2010—Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
March 2001—Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (Must Get Signet Classics UNABRIDGED, translation by Lee Fahnestock/Norman MacAfee)
Not bad, eh? I'm excited, and I sensed many of the other women are excited too. It's not just an opportunity to read and discuss literature. It's an opportunity to form friendships, develop community and go deeper. This is my heart's desire to see women find godly community. I'm so thankful to be a part of this group!
