Caitlin Saves the Day!!

When you last saw us, we were a loose group of friends (not loose in *that* way---well, maybe...) struggling to get this book club past the epic volume, The Art of Happiness by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. You didn't think we would make it, did you?

But we are victorious! Just a mere seven months after choosing the book, we all actually have copies in our hot little hands and we are actually reading it! All thanks to Caitlin and her excellent idea for Xmas gifts. Thanks!

Plus! Having now set the standards for success so low, we just need to complete the next book in a mere six months to feel the rosy glow of progress!

But--first things first. We need to meet and discuss the current book, plus all the many musical albums we've gone through in the past 7 months. And with our dearly departed (but not in *that* way) Cait gone from our sides, this looked like an impossibility. But THEN! Another miracle. She is unexpectedly returning to us from beyond state lines!!

So: I propose we set an official GHDAH meeting for Thursday, January 13th 2011. Eveningish. All in?

Change of Plans?

Okay Gals. Is it time to admit this isn't working? We don't seem able to get throug this book! Only one of us even has it. I want to be the kind of person who would read this book, but I don't seem able to actually do so. : )

New Idea: Amanda and I recently met a lovely local author named Sherry Jones who has some fabulous sounding historical novels (no, not that kind of historical novel!).

Let's chat about it over drinks at you-know-where soon. : )

May/June Reading

This time around, we agreed to read The Art of Happiness by his holiness the Dalai Lama. Though our meeting was many weeks ago, I don't think any of us have started it yet. Life is busy with summer and work and play and such :). Nevertheless, I am looking forward to reading this one!
