    A book suggestion for a future meeting: The Book Thief by Markus Zukas.

  2. I ❤ this book suggestion! Be on the look out for a post on future book club titles.

  3. Janet – We will be discussing THE BOOK THIEF soon. I hope to see you at next month’s book club!

  4. Colin says:

    Will the club ever do “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”? also, when will registration for December happen and how can I get a copy of The Hobbit?

    • Good question, Colin. I love the book version of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and I’ve heard the movie is pretty good. It’s definitely a title to consider, thanks for the suggestion. We have a few titles purchased for the next few months, but it’s possible that we could this one.

      Regarding The Hobbit, you may register for it now at We meet Saturday, December 15th, 2 – 4pm.

      If you’re able to visit the Main Library, I can reserve a copy for you on the hold shelf across from the check-out desk, or I can send it to another branch if that’s more convenient for you. Either way, let me know!

      Feel free to email me: If you plan to pick it up, please tell me when, so I can be sure to put it out for you.

      Hope to see you at the next book club!
