Book Club

Anyone that knows me knows I love to read so it shouldn't be any shock to know that I am part of our ward's book club. This month we held book club at my house. Something I haven't done since Mil was a month old, so I figured after more than a year it was my turn again :)

The Book: The Last Town On Earth by Thomas Mullen
The year is 1918. America is fighting a war on foreign soil that has divided the nation. Meanwhile, rumors of the spread of the deadliest epidemic ever are causing panic on the home front. The uninfected town of Commonwealth, Washington, votes to quarantine itself, and two young friends are asked to guard the town entrance and keep strangers out.
One day, a starving, cold—and seemingly ill—soldier comes out of the woods begging for sanctuary, and the two guards are confronted with an agonizing moral dilemma.
So begins The Last Town on Earth . . .

The Treat: Leftover treats from the primary activity (Yes, I'm the President I can take the leftovers!) and some yummy Cinnamon rolls.

The Ladies: Delightful! It's so fun to get together with others who love to read. It's a fun range of ages 27 to ? (Well, I'm not sure how old Sister Rose is but it's older than 27 :) and great personalities.

The book for December: The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck
The book for January: Power to the People by Laura Ingraham

That sounds like an interesting read, I might have to look into it. I read The Good Earth again right before Jana was born, and I still love it. One of my favorites.
