And speaking of future reads, I am excited about the book selected for our next book club meeting in September, Green Dolphin Street (a.k.a. Green Dolphin Country) by Elizabeth Goudge. I read this book as a young teenager and didn't like it... then later in my late teens I thought back and in retrospect realized what a great story it actually was. I can't wait to re-read it and see what my thoughts are now and then discuss it amongst my reading friends.
I love my book club. The ladies all have such interesting thoughts and questions about each book we read. It is always an fun, enlightening and educational experience. Today's discussion covered two books: Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens and A House to Let by Dickens and friends (reviewed by me in June) and it was as always an excellent time, even though our group was about half its normal size. The discussion was lively and we had fun reading quotes from the books, particularly the humorous quotes about the Circumlocution Office and the descriptions of some of the characters. Watch for quotes in my upcoming review and perhaps even a Tuesday Teaser. No spoilers, but I will say this, I am very much looking forward to my review of Little Dorrit. Stay tuned!
