January Simply Books! Meeting

Foiled!  Foiled by snow!  Snow!  Who knew that happened in Maine in the wintertime?!

The good news is that we weren’t entirely foiled.   We had a small but hardy band of people who live close by last Saturday.  Here are the books we talked about this month, as the storm raged outside:

saudi arabiaOn Saudi Arabia: Its People, Past, Religion, Fault Lines, and Future by Karen Elliott House

some luckSome Luck by Jane Smiley

my brilliant friendMy Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante

bravemuleBravemule: The Incredibly True Story of Raul the Coolest Mule In School Who Stood Up to Segregation  by Bennet Geis and Henry Chamberlin

reaperThe Reaper  by Peter Lovesey

secret placeThe Secret Place by Tana French

ChewChew by John Layman and Rob Guillory

If I survive yet another drive home tonight in the snowy blustery darkness, I’ll be facilitating our next meeting on Saturday, February 28th at 2pm in the Jean Picker Room.  If I don’t, it’s up to current members of Simply Books! to choose a successor.  And avenge me, of course.

Be safe, everyone!
