New blog page ~and ~ A Book Club

I am in a book club with a group of retired teachers who are loads of fun.  My booth partner, Martie, is in the club, too.  The other members want to see our booth and want to tell some of their friends about it.  To make it easy for them, I have added a page on my blog about the Rockin B - MY BOOTH.

I added photos to the page of things that caught my eye last week.  You can see from those that the Rockin' B has a little bit of everything.  The danger of renting there is that I am tempted to spend more than I make.

As for the book club, Our first book was Olive Kitteridge.  Oh, my.  That was the most depressing book ever!  We all were miserable reading it. The author writes very well and the book has won awards, but I sure wish the author would write well about something a little happier. 

Now we are reading  The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  I read it several years ago and just loved it.  The topic is depressing, but the book is not!  It's wonderful.  I'm going to read it again, because I have forgotten so much. 

I read several reviews and this is the one that came closest to saying what I would have said -
Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows have written a wondrous, delightful, poignant book— part Jane Austen, part history lesson.  The letters in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society aren't addressed to you, but they are meant for you.  It's a book everyone should read.  An absolute treasure.—Sarah Addison Allen, author of Garden Spells
