Discussible Choices: What Are You Reading? August 2012

Congratulations to Amy and the Senior Adult Afternoon Book Discussion for winning the random drawings for this month’s Discussible Book Choice!

“We enjoyed reading the book Minding Frankie by Maeve Binchy. Even though there were A LOT of characters, we enjoyed the theme of a community being a family. Everyone could relate to at least one character in the book. A great read!”

More Discussible Book Choices

“One of our favorite discussions centered around The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy. It was such an interesting read, and we loved the setting. We had a lively discussion, and our discussion leader made some snacks as described in the novel and also provided some chocolate! All in all a mighty fine book club meeting!”

“We just finished reading and discussing The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender. At the meeting before we read this book we were discussing the title and laughing saying that we couldn't imagine anything sad about lemon cake. At the next meeting, we actually had a lemon cake with chocolate icing like on the cover of the book, and several people said they could never eat lemon cake now without thinking of this book. Some did not like the book, but most did. We felt very sorry for Rose and the fact that not only did she suffer from this "special ability" but she had no one in her family to help her with this and almost ended up in the mental hospital over it. We felt all of her family were very immature and that she was left to handle most things by herself. Most felt that it was a very strange book, especially the story-line of her brother, which we felt was not explained well enough. A very good discussion though.”
