Since getting involved with the book club through my local Air Force spouses group, I’ve read so many books that I might not have picked up on my own, and I love that.
Of course, since I’m one of the leaders of the book club, I do have some say in which books were a part of the poll, but our members voted on the top picks, and we ended up with a few that I wasn’t so sure about.
One of these books in particular was What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty.
This was our November book club pick. I have to admit that I thought this would be another silly chick-lit book that I’d end up getting bored with halfway through & have pretentious feelings about. But, as it turns out, I was wrong.
Today I went to a clearance sale for the Half-Price Books store. They had so many books that they held it in Wright State’s big arena! It was a pretty good sale – but it took me a few hours to find good quality books I was interested in. They were $2 each, which is awesome. Some of them are for a project for book club, so I’ve read a few of them. Check out my haul!
This is one of my favorite spots in the house – the bookshelf in our second bedroom/office. It’s where I keep most of my books, and every time I look at it I’m reminded of all the stories I’ve read and have yet to read. I’ve got books from childhood, high school, college summers, and ones I just picked up last week, along with unsent Christmas cards and trinkets filled with memories. Bookshelves can be an incredibly personal thing and a peek into someone’s life. I hope I can read all of the books on my shelves someday!
