It’s always lovely when we get some new folks to join the fun at Simply Books, with new points of view and new books to share!
I talk a lot in these posts about how we often end up with accidental themes at our meetings. Last week, we didn’t. Instead, there was the oddest feeling that we were around a holiday table and talk had turned to books that we’ve been reading lately. All thanks to a member who suggested that we go around the table and introduce ourselves to the people who hadn’t been before!
Really. It was the oddest thing–different energy, different diversions, lots of laughter. And a hilarious extended reference to The Caine Mutiny. With all of the friendly good cheer, I nearly got up to dish out the coffee and fruitcake when we were done. (Confidential apology to SB! members: I should have had coffee and fruitcake. Sorry.)
Look after the jump for the booklist.
Without further ado, here are the books we shared at our December meeting:
Happy holidays to those that celebrate! We hope to see you in the New Year at Simply Books! Our next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, January 4th at 2pm, in the Jean Picker Room.
