February Book Club

Alright... the book I've picked for February is "Kindred" by Octavia Butler. I read it when I was a sophomore in high school and I remember thinking "Wow, a required reading that I actual enjoy!". I've been meaning to go back and read it, but haven't gotten around to it, so we'll do it together!!

The plan is to start reading now (or as soon as you can get a copy of the book... hopefully all your libraries will have it!) We will plan to be done by the last day of February (the 29th this year!) and we will start our discussion then. We will announce March's book around the middle of February so we can all start hunting that one down. I tag Liz&Meg to choose March's book, and then Liz, you just tag someone to choose April's and we'll go from there. If for any reason the tagged person doesn't want to choose, just pass the responsibility on to someone else!

Please post a comment if you plan to participate, so we know that we'll have at least a few people to discuss the book. And remember... this is suppose to be a no pressure thing, so if you sign up, but then life gets too busy... no worries!!

I will try to get it read.

Quick question: Can they be children's chapter books too?

I'm excited!! :)

And, I definitely think that you should be allowed to do children's chapter books too...those are some of the best books out there!! :)

I agree with Tiffany. I love juvenile lit!

I'll check my library! I too agree that we should occasionally read some children's lit.

About the children's chapter books... I don't see why not. We all have children!
