June Book Discussion

A handful of Willie’s Women met this month for a fun and lively discussion. The result was a nice variety of recommendations for our readers.

BERTHA-ROSE gives Mary Lawson’s A Town Called Solace (first recommended by our Jenny) four stars and has read the ebook version as well as listened to the audiobook. Bertha-Rose is currently reading Five Little Indians by Canadian author Michelle Good, which won a number of awards including the Giller Prize. Although she’s only about a third of the way through this book, Bertha-Rose gives it four stars.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Later in the discussion, Bertha-Rose shared with us the journal in which she records the books she’s read; Bibliophile Reader’s Journal by Jane Mount.

JENNY gives Graham Norton’s Home Stretch four stars.

She also mentioned his two autobiographies, So Me and The Life and Loves of a He Devil as well as his other titles, Holding and A Keeper.

BERNADETTE gave Hoda Kotb’s This Just Speaks to Me five stars although she hadn’t finished it yet. She read some quotes from the book such a s”we rise by lifting others.” Later, Bernadette shared a photobook hobby of hers. She gets these printed from Snapfish and really enjoys saving family photos in these bound books.
