Sliding Into June With a Reminder

I hope you all enjoyed a pleasant extended weekend.

I'm welcoming June with a quick reminder: Our next Read With Us book discussion is coming right up!

Read With Us

First, the book . . . 

52741293._SY475_

Shuggie Bain by Douglas Stuart. If you haven't had a chance to read it yet, you still have time. Although it's a longer book, it's quite compelling and doesn't take as long to read as you think it might. (You'll want to get started soon, though.) You can probably pick it up at your local library or bookstore (it's out in paperback now), and it's available on Kindle for $8.67 right now if you like to read on an e-reader. (And I'm sure it would fit quite nicely into one of your Summer Book Bingo squares!)

Then, the discussion.

We'll be talking about the book on Tuesday, June 8 -- both on our blogs and with a Zoom meet-up. 

  • Bonny, Carole, and I will each post a different discussion question on our blogs next Tuesday -- June 8. Feel free to post your thoughts about the book by commenting throughout the discussion week.
  • Later that same evening, we'll be hosting a Zoom meet-up at 7:00 pm to discuss the book "live" and in person. If you want to join us (and we hope you will; we've really enjoyed the previous two Read With Us Zooms), all you need to do is . . . let us know! Just RSVP by leaving a comment on any of our blogs beginning today -- or you can send us an email. I'll be sending out the Zoom information prior to the meet-up -- AND I'll be sending out some background information about the book and the author to deepen our understanding of the book prior to the discussion.

If you've read the book - or if you're still planning to - we hope you'll join us for the discussion on June 8.

And . . . welcome June!

I can't wait for this book discussion. I am profoundly thankful for your "Glaswegian dialect" link... because I needed it more than once! It is a bitter story...my heart was so sore reading it but, I look forward to hearing what others thought. The writing was truly lovely though... despite the pain of the story.

Bonny

Thank you for the reminder! I looked for some good questions yesterday, but didn't find any that really struck me. Time to buckle down today!

Patty
