Important Book Club News

It is with much regret that I have to write you this note. I am taking time off from the book club until further notice. As many of you know, I am going to school more than full time in addition to working full time. I am beginning my senior year classes at Troy University online and it is getting tough as I am seeking my Bachelor’s degree in History. I am squeaking by with my assignments and I don’t have time for additional leisurely reading and meetings. I will be taking a break from coordinating book club for at least the next year. I plan to graduate May 2013 (fingers crossed!) so hopefully after that is complete I can re-evaluate my time and see about getting things going again.

Of course with all this being said, anyone who would like to volunteer and take over the book club is welcome to volunteer. If you are interested in organizing the book each month just let me know and I can get you all the e-mail and book club information. Just a few benefits include great conversation with wise women, encouragement in your walk and an ever expanding love of our community of faith. 

I know how much many of you enjoy reading new books with the knowledge others are reading right along with you. I feel confident that those of you who have had your love of reading re-kindled will continue reading and reaching out to each other for book ideas. During this time if you read something that is just fantastic, send an e-mail and I’ll share it with the group and write it down on my future reading list.

Below are just a few of the book titles that have been recommended to me for book club in the past couple months in case you are interested. Disclaimer: I have not read any of these.

A mother’s Hope by Francine Rivers

Even Now Ever After by Karen Kingsbury

Margaret of Molokai by Mel White

May’s Boy: An Incredible Story of Love by Shirlee Monty

Deadline by Randy Alcorn

The Walk Series by Richard Paul Evans

The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

Crazy Love by Francis Chan

This present Darkness by Frank Peretti

With all this being said, the April Book Club meeting for the book, Choosing to See by Mary Beth Chapman is this upcoming Saturday April 28th at 8:30 AM. Please RSVP and let me know if we are going to have a turnout. Unless someone else comes forward to volunteer, this will be the last meeting until further notice.

Thank you for your time, encouragement and patience with me. Please say a prayer for me and my family as I work to finish up my degree.

Many Thanks, Much Love and Happy Reading to you!
