What a Weekend!
In The Blink of An Eye

Updates and Changes and Zooms . . . Oh, My!


Wasn't TODAY . . . supposed to be THE DAY we all discussed the latest 

Read With Us

book selection . . . The Women of Brewter Place????

The Women of Brewster Place

Oh, yes, my friends.
Yes. It was.

And I sincerely hope you'll . . .
be okay with,
cut us some slack for
. . . making a last minute substitution here.

You see, well. The election and resulting exhaustion got the better of us. We hope our change in the "starting lineup" won't be disappointing for any of you, and that you'll stick with us for a week.

Here's the adjusted plan:

Next week - on Tuesday, November 17 - each of us (Bonny, Carole, and I) will post a book discussion question on our blogs. As always, we encourage discussion-by-comment through the week.

But-wait-there's-more! Also on Tuesday, November 17 at 7:00 pm Eastern Time we will be hosting the FIRST EVER READ WITH US ZOOM book group meet-up! To join in, all you need to do is RSVP to either Bonny, Carole, or I. You will receive a Zoom invitation next Monday. We hope you'll join us. Come along to talk about the book, share a glass of wine (or your beverage of choice), and just . . . hang out with us for a while.

So. If you haven't read the book yet - or if you're not quite finished - you've got an extra week to do it. And if you want to supplement your reading (or substitute your reading altogether), you can watch the story unfold before you on Amazon Prime. 


Oprah Winfrey's The Women of Brewster Place is available to rent for $3.99 (or you can purchase if for $7.99) on Amazon Prime right now. I rented and watched a couple of weeks ago, and found the movie version follows the book very closely. If you don't have time to read the book - or if you just want a refresher - I highly recommend watching this film version.


I hope you'll forgive us for this last-minute change in plans.
And I really hope you'll join in either the discussion or the Zoom meet-up or BOTH next Tuesday!

And, as always, thanks for reading with us!

I am willing to cut us some slack! I was definitely not in the mindspace for a book discussion when we talked about it last week, but am now looking forward to Zooming next week.


Love the slack! I've listened to it, have the book on my phone to refresh and want to watch the movie. THANK-YOU for the extra week. Can't wait to see you all! :-)


What a lovely idea! Sounds like fun x


After last week we deserve ALL the slack! hahaha! Fingers crossed this goes off without a hitch!


In 2020, everyone gets cut some extra slack! I am excited for an in-person book discussion! We've done a less formal book discussion a couple of times in the group that Mary hosts on Sundays, and I've really enjoyed it. I've always wanted to be in a book club but never managed it until this year!


What a great idea! I’m hoping to be Zooming with Aspen Words to hear Isabel Wilkerson on the 17th....but I’ll definitely hop on the blogs, at the very least. And I live the Zoom plan (for this book or the next, for me!).


oooh, I'm happy for the delay - I still haven't had a chance to watch since finishing the book. Looking forward to the discussion next week (and sorry, I'll miss the Zoom. darn it!)


THAT'S why the Women of Brewster Place is in my library queue. I have a mind like a sieve. Glad for the reprieve - and slack is given, since I've certainly needed my share lately!
