    WE REALLY ENJOYED THE AMAZING MRS. POLLIFAX. IT WAS A FUN, LIGHT READ AND HER CHARACTER POSSESSED QUALITIES WE ALL WOULD LIKE TO EMBRACE A LITTLE MORE.

    WE ALSO REALLY LIKE THE GUERNSEY LITERARY POTATO PEEL PIE SOCIETY. ONCE WE GOT STARTED , WE ALL AGREED IT WAS HARD TO PUT DOWN. IT DID PROMOTE GOOD DISCUSSION FOR US AS WELL.

    We also loved The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and I am leading a trip to Guernsey in October. I can’t wait!

    My lunch book club recently read and discussed Gone with the Wind to coincide with our local Civil War celebration. Even though most of us had read it when we were teenagers we loved reading it again…from a different perspective. It was a great discussion!

    Thanks for your comments, Lana & Christie. And Christie – You must write a blog for us about your trip to Guernsey! That is so cool.
