The book club I am in continues to be great bibliophile fun, but has become even more enjoyable as we get to know each other better. We've even done some non-book socializing, like when one of our members invited us all to an oliebollen party during the holidays, and when the others (not me, unfortunately) got together for a movie night to watch the film adaptation of Sometimes a Great Notion. This updated book list includes all the books we've read since I joined last year: Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky Leap of Faith by Queen Noor The Feast of Love by Charles Baxter A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini The Bone People by Keri Hulme (reviewed here) The History of Love by Nicole Krauss Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver Loving Frank by Nancy Horan Somtimes a Great Notion by Ken Keysey Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali (this month's book) It will be my turn to host at our May gathering. Hopefully my house will be finished by then so we don't have to eat dinner in the habitrail.
