I’ve been thinking about what to read next as a group, and I love the idea of reading one book every two months. A few of the women in our online book club suggested it. It’s a great idea because most of us have way less time to read during the fall months.
I landed on one that may be new for some of you and one that’s a good, old-fashioned standby: For September and October, we’ll read Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier. It’s one of my all-time favorite books that I read with my college literature students. For November and December, we’ll read Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. It’s such a fun book to read during the holidays. I love a cozy classic when the weather turns cold.
As always, you can read along with us, join in discussions as you like, and/or read other great books and share them with the rest of the group.
Both of these books also have movie versions, so you and your local friends might want to put together a book discussion and viewing party as well.
