Here’s the deal. The “Page” idea I had for this Book Club is not going to do what I thought it would. It is only a single page that allows comments but no updates can be added. I can not even put up the selected book cover photo or a synopsis of what the book is about. I will not be able to have a post with the chapter selections to read and include a place for your comments and thoughts on what has been read.
The next little problem I have is figuring our what, exactly, type of book to start off with.
Lynn, all the way over in Jolly Old England, has suggested a “historical Medieval romance” novel which looks to be quite good. I’ve Googled “Summer’s Storm” by Denise Domning and find it quite tempting. There is one book before this in Ms. Domning’s series.
We will be delivering in Charlotte, North Carolina tomorrow, Saturday, and will be heading home for a couple days before leaving for the west coast and Washington once again. We should be home on Monday and stay for a couple days.
See, this is what happens when I make a snap decision without doing any research. Not to worry though.
I think a new blog, a separate blog, will be the answer to the glitch. I can start it from my phone (I think) and tweak it when I get home to my computer. This only means a slight delay.
While I’m working out the new place for Shelly’s Book Club to live I would like to take a poll, of sorts, to find out what genre of books you guys all find enjoyable.
I’m not much up for shoot’em up and gore – I get enough of that listening to books with Joe as we travel. Murder mysteries and police procedural books have been listened to for the past year. Suspense and dangerous situations took their toll on me.
I paid him back though. He had to listen to a Nora Roberts book – The Witness – which was actually good. Funny to watch him squirm during the erotic bits. That was hilarious! Poor guy 😜. Thankfully, for him, there was more good story than erotic bits LOL.
Since I’ve never been part of a book club I don’t know how a book gets selected. I’m positive there is a leader whom the decision falls to and everyone else follows.
If there are no other book suggestions from you guys then we will begin with Summer’s Storm. This time delay will allow us all to get the book.
Check with your local library to see if they have it or can get it for you. If you choose to do an “ebooks” I saw this book available at Amazon, Booksamillion, and on Kindle. It is NOT, however, available through iBooks. You can also purchase it from your local bookseller or online from Barnes and Noble.
Here is a link to the book Summer’s Storm”
Last, and most important, I am both amazed and thrilled with the amount of interest and support this “Project to help Shelly” has garnered. It is my wish that everyone benefits from this venture and we all feel part of something even though we are from all over the place.
A side benefit is we can carry on a discussion of the books in our jammies at no particular time. No one will have to break their neck cleaning the house and baking cookies for the gathering 😎
Okay, time to hit the road.
