I'm Not Oprah

Hudson and I have had a brilliant idea, a stroke of genius, I tell you (that should also tell you it was mostly hers)! Well, actually you'll be the judge of that. Here's the pitch - a bunch of us all read a lot of books. I can tell that from all of your sidebars. I know I respond to a lot of email about books I've read or what I'm currently reading. I even post all my reviews at the end of each month. So...what could be more natural than a little book club action?

All you have to do now is let me know if you're interested. So comment already!

I'm in. :)

I belong to a book review club (about 7 years) and love it. I read stuff I would never have picked up, so it has really broadened my reading!

Please let me know what you're planning.

Keep me in the loop on this one as well. If nothing else it'll give me an excuse to finally pick up a new book and give up on what I'm working on now!

Posted by: Kerry at August 30, 2004 05:57 PM

Count me in!

Posted by: feisty girl at August 30, 2004 06:01 PM

Yay! I'm in too!

Posted by: tulip at August 30, 2004 06:22 PM

Books! Bookie-bookie books! Yay for books and the clubs that read them!

(thats a yes)

Posted by: bmh at August 30, 2004 06:25 PM

I'd like to join too, if that's ok?

Posted by: Kyren at August 30, 2004 06:27 PM

Yes yes yes!! I love to read, and with the kiddos at school, I might actually have time!

Posted by: Amy at August 30, 2004 06:57 PM

Sounds good to me!

Posted by: HG at August 30, 2004 07:18 PM

What a fun idea! I have more books than square footage in my home, this either means I'm an obsessive compulsive or I really like books. I'm hoping for the later. Sign me up too, please!

Count me in :)

Nothing like a little light reading for the fall!

Posted by: Kellie at August 30, 2004 10:05 PM

oh i would love to do this! would you be able to keep my 2 year old for me for a little while so i could get some time to read? please, he's real cute and a lot of fun... just doesn't let me sit down for 5 minutes at a time. right now i'm reading The Big House by George Howe Colt... its very interesting, i just haven't had a chance to sit down and really get into it... of course, it doesn't help that all my free time is spent sitting in front of the computer doing nerd things. =)

Posted by: monique at August 30, 2004 10:21 PM

well, if my name isn't littlesambook!

this sounds GREAT. Any excuse to buy a book sounds perfect. Count me in, please.

I'm SO interested that I'm jumping up and down right now!

Posted by: DeAnn at August 31, 2004 02:23 AM

Just so long as these books have pictures and a happy ending slash moral to them, and we get cookies when were done , I'm in.

Posted by: Shaners at August 31, 2004 07:18 AM

I think you should read "Not Quite Married" by Betina Krahn. It's coming out today, and it would be something interesting, as it's a book from twenty years ago she's rewritten.

And I bet no one's ever really gotten into romance novels on your site. :) It'd be a leap of faith...

Posted by: alektra at August 31, 2004 07:27 AM
