Book Club was this week. We read "The Glass Castle". I had seen the author on a news talk show a few years ago and immediately recognized her story. However several of our bookclub members thought it was based on a fictional story. It's truly amazing how this woman overcame her neglectful upbringing and become a successful journalist. Our bible study group had a kick off luncheon this week. We will begin our new study in October based on the book "Calm My Anxious Heart." I don't know if I feel more calm or anxious when I read that title. I bought this beautiful vintage pink book yesterday when I was out shopping for upholstery for our living room sofas. I love it. Please leave me a comment if you can recommend a good book for our bookclub. We are all supposed to come to our meetings with recommendations and I must admit that I'm lax on that responsibility. I read several books a month but not really books that would be good discussion topics. I love to read Christian based fiction, mysteries, books written by Southern authors and of course home decor and craft books. Being in a book club not only broadens my horizons but brings to attention great authors that I would not have known. Not to mention fun girls night outs.

Oh Cindy I LOVED this book. It's amazing what people can and do live through. Talk about realizing and acknowledging our blessings! I love to read but can't recommend anything as it has been awhile since I've read anything at all...

Eat Pray Love.
Have you guys read that one yet? It's my most favorite book the year. Also loved The Secret Life of Bees.
