Mama's Book Club

Due to the overwhelming response two comments I received about it, we are going to start our virtual Book Club.  I think I would like to host it here to start, and do a Mr. Linky thing-y on the "meeting" day.  Then, others can take turns hosting, and moderating the "discussion."  

I think we should nominate the book we want to read, and I'll have it up for a vote on Wednesday (tomorrow).  Then, we'll have our first meeting in December.  Since I am hosting the first one, I will write my objective opinion and you all can post a comment, sign up on Mr. Linky, and publish your own review on your site that day.  By the way, you lurkers and non-bloggers are welcome to play, too.  We want lots of input!

Of course, I might entertain am open to other suggestions.  Whaddaya think?

I am not going to suggest a book this time.  Although, I might say that the Twilight movie comes out this month....


I'm a Bella! I found out through TwilightersAnonymous.com. Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!


Now, go vote.

Based on the fact that I haven't read anything other than a phone book in the past 10 years, I will sit back and watch from afar but admire your willingness to organize a book club.

Now, I am off to vote!

I've read the Twilight books one through three already. Read most of The Host last week and was disappointed and put it down. But Twilight was good.

asthmagirl said...

Can't wait to go vote. I'm for the book club in theory... I just haven't had time to read lately.

Deb said...

I still have not drove into the Twilight book yet. I mean to...but..well, I find I should be job hunting or loving my grandbaby
! I will commit... to participate. I could recommend Twilight!!!!

Caution Flag said...

Not that I need them, but I can't get my bifocals until January. Until then, I will join the club and simply squint.

Joanie said...

This is a great idea!

Keetha said...

Count me in for the book club.

And I apologize for giving away the spoiler in Breaking Dawn - I'm so sorry! I just wasn't thinking about people who were reading the books.

I voted this morning. It did my heart good to see all the folks there to vote. :-)

Ellen said...

I love to read, so count me in! Looking forward to the title announcement.

Snooty Primadona said...

Apparently I'm not utilizing my time as I should be. I never have time to read anymore!

I'm off to vote now...

Daryl said...

Anyone who wants to borrow Twilight should let me know .. Kate has it now but will send it on to whoever would like it ...

Thanks for commenting~ I'm hoping to write a decent sized check tomorrow! And I'd like my friend to be surprized at how much he has to donate!

Heidi said...

I might be interested in this. I love a good book.

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Sounds like a good read, now if only I could sit down and actually READ!

big hair envy said...

Voted before dawn,um, work this morning! I am SO in on the book club. Let me go out on a limb and say that I have not yet read "The Shack", and would LOVE to find a good reason to do so.

Lisa J said...

I voted mid morning and it was a breeze. It was sweet that when a boy voted for his first time (we vote at a school) everyone clapped and cheered for him. Small school, small community, and huge spirits. I thought that was way cool!

Krysta said...

i voted but the poll workers were grouchy and wouldn't give me a sticker!

Suz @ Alive in Wonderland said...

That picture is adorable.

Alias Liz said...

I'm reading Pigs in Heaven. It's great. It's not actually about religion. I voted today! Yay, no more campaign commercials.

Count me in on the book club -- let me know what to read, when and I'll do it!

I love memoirs, and am interested in your book club. Please tell me/us how the "hosting" process would work?
Read a great funny memoir called, "Fat, Forty and Fired," about a CEO of an ad agency who gets fired and stays home to take care of 4 kids under the age of 8. Hilarious from a Dad's perspective. Also loved, "French by Heart," by Rebecca Ramsey. An American Family's Adventures in La Belle France. Also very funny and well written.

Debbie said...

I took the quiz and I'm an Esme. No surprise there. Just reading about this MPBC and I'm still pondering. Only because it would require me to BUY the book.

I love the idea though and for gosh sakes, paperbacks aren't that expensive! I also have never read any Twighlight books.
