And we're off!
Erinn and I agree that we had quite a successful first meeting last night and are super excited to get started on our first book. Thank you Erinn for the delicious food and wine (too bad it was a Monday!) I love seeing how everyone's personality was reflected in their lists (not just what was written, but the actual lists). Although I typed my list up with summaries of each selection, Erinn out-did me by further making copies of her typed list for everyone...amazing Erinn! Second place goes to Tara whose list came in the form of a huge pile of books (we knew when she left because we could all see each other over the coffee table again!) And, third place goes to Nat D, whose list included a book on economics? What did you do Nat, write your list as you wandered around Chapters?!!! Maybe you and Nat B can start your own math club? (Too harsh?)
Anyway, we all wrote three titles on paper and figured out which were repeated the most. From this list, we chose our first three books and we're all excited to start the month of September off reading "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave.
In October, we are reading "Secret Daughter" by Shilpi Somaya Gowda and in November, we are reading "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie" by Alan Bradley.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS ladies, I'm hosting the next BFAB on Tuesday, October 5th (Little Bee), Nat B is hosting on Tuesday, November 2nd (Secret Daughter) and Tara is hosting on Tuesday, December 7th (Sweetness).
I'll send out some questions the week before our next BFAB Club. Please feel free to comment here throughout the month though, if you have anything that you would like to share...don't be shy!
Wishing Tara, Julie and Erinn a safe and super trip to Bali!
Happy Reading B-FABers,
