“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”

Madeleine L’Engle

Earlier this year in January, I was feeling the effects of the pandemic. I had already really delved into reading to occupy my time the following year and I had an idea.

I wondered if anyone wanted to read with me. I was also curious about being in a book club. Why I hadn’t been in one prior, was unbeknownst to me but the combined effects of being isolated in the pandemic and reading to stave of boredom brought the book club idea into fruition. Thank you, Facebook Groups!

It’s been a great pleasure to me to read the same book as others and have our monthly(ish) zoom meeting to discuss. It’s provided a sense of community and togetherness for me and I hope others in the group feel the same.

If you happen to be interested in joining, please either comment or private message me. (I also happen to love meeting new people).

This month we are reading The Fire Keepers Daughter by Angeline Boulley. I am about half way through and it is keeping my interest.

My plan is to start blogging about some of the books that I am reading, so please stay tuned.

And many thanks for reading this blog post! To know that others are interested in what I have to say, means the world.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend (here in Canada),
