Java House Gathering
It's great to have an on-line access to our gatherings. If you want to join, but can't make it in person, you can always chat with us via the internet. If you are a facebook member (Pink Ladies Book and Movie Club) then all you have to do it log on to your facebook account and chat away. Tonight's meeting was a fun catch-up night as we welcomed Deborah. She was a close high school friend of Sharen and Denise's. Deborah's teenage daughter stopped by after the meeting and teased us for acting like teenagers. We just couldn't help it. After reviewing several books on the coffee table, we all agreed we would give "Salem Falls" a try. It is a thick book so we suggest you get started soon. If you're an avid reader, it probably won't be an issue for you. We are hoping it isn't too intimidating to you "new" readers. Tonight's discussions took us from talking about Mitch Albom's books to Nora Roberts series under the pen name "J.D. Robb". Deborah mentioned how she used to read Stephen King, but thought he got way too weird with his writing. Denise agreed and said that she used to be afraid to visit Maine, because of the things that happened there in King's books. We had to remind her that wasn't real. haha That lead to a discussion on how authors write about what they know and they know "where" they live. Cheryl said she will try Water for Elephants (the book) and Sharen is happy to give her a copy as she couldn't get into the book. Deborah agreed. The movie talked about this month was "Sliding Doors" and the consensus was that it was a great movie. We hope you will join us for Salem Falls and as always, we welcome your suggestions. Visit us on facebook: Pink Ladies Book and Movie Club. Happy Reading!
