Attention Classics Bookclub fans (and those interested in a Contemporary Bookclub): We are changing things up. It seems like a lot of you intend to read the Classics, but then perhaps run out of time, so we are going to start alternating a Classics feature with a Contemporary fiction book club pick. We do not want to abandon Classics Bookclub, because I know that a lot of you (like myself) enjoy the accountability to go back and read these books, but I think that one a month is a bit too ambitious.
So, as always you are invited to join us each month, or only participate in the books or genre that interests you.
See our new schedule below:
- June 2 — Everyone is Beautiful (linked to Dawn’s gushing review)
- July 7 — Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
- August 4 — Contemporary — To be determined
- September 1 — Any work by Mark Twain (maybe use the long summer months to do a read-aloud or family read)
- October 6 —Contemporary — TBD
- November 3 — Classics TBD (probably either any work by Alcott or Counte of Monte Cristo by Dumas — both previously on the schedule)
And now for our third Tuesday feature, Kids’ Picks.
This is the time for you to share which books have captivated your kids this month. They may be picture books that you had to read over and over — against your will– after they were checked out from the library.
It could be a new series or author that recently captivated your independent reader.
Spill it. Because in spite of what everyone says we should like, the strongest recommendations for me is what kids actually DO like.
Link up below, and be sure to include your child(ren)’s age and/or the title of the book.
Join us for our upcoming Tuesday events (find out more about all our regular carnivals at the Join In page on the navbar):
April 28 — What’s on Your Nightstand
May 5 — Classics Bookclub — The Great Gatsby
May 12 — Children’s Classics — Future Classics (newer books that you think will be classics)
