Book Club

My Pseudo Book Club that I was doing with a friend has turned into a full fledged book club.  We have meetings and chose books together and it grew by a couple of people.  We have read 2 books together and discussed one so far.  I look forward to our next meeting and book discussion.  We read Water for Elephants this time.  I've been wanting to read that book for a while now.  For several reasons.  I've heard great things about it.  I wanted to read it before I saw the movie and it spoiled the book for me.  And it's a Nano book. 
The author did a lot of research before the month of Nano and had it outlined and ready to write. 

It's motivating to read something so great that came from such a fun event that is Nano. 


  1. Well that's inspiring right? Nano turning into a giant book and blockbuster hit? Did you like Water for Elephants?

    1. There are actually several big selling books that came from Nano. I think I'll do some research and post a few others that were. I know that there are lots and lots that are self published as well. I happen to know a 12 year old who published hers last year. You can buy it on Amazon

    2. And I LOVED Water for Elephants. It was a great book. Have you read it Katy?

  2. I LOVE my book club that's been meeting for about one year. We do a book a month and take turns picking. We started with The Help and have done all different kinds of books since then. That's so cool to know that about Water for Elephants. That book is one of my favorites!
