First Bookclub Meeting

Matthew and I are starting our own bookclub.  We always read together, but we haven't read a book separately and then discussed it.

I got the idea from Inspired to Action.  A great Christian website that offers practical tips for moms.  Love it.

But back to the story.  Tonight is the bookclub kickoff.  We're going to have dinner at Chick-fil-A or Subway.

I chose the first book:  From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. 

It's a great book about a brother and sister who decide to run away from home and stay at a museum.  Lots of good adventure.

Matthew's going to chose the next book.  He's pretty sure it's going to be Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder.

Pray for me!

Love the Bookclub idea! What a great way to get some 1:1 time. Good luck with the second book choice :)

Such a good idea!

Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder? Haven't heard of that, but Jack is a voracious reader, and from the title, it sounds as though that'd be a book he'd pick out, too. :)

Love this idea! My DD has finally started to enjoy reading, and she's picking up some of the same series of books that I loved as a kid. Maybe I'll see if the library has two copies so we can read together and do our own little version of a book club. Thanks for the idea!
