Book Club

I very much want to choose a classic for the book club, but I think I am going to wait one more month. I must check out the UBS and library to see what I can come up with. I would hate to pick a book that no one can get their hands on.

SO. In the mean time I have decided to go with a book that will one day be considered a classic. A book that is loved by many. A book that was recently used in a "Name That Book" post. A book everyone has said that must reread now. A book called...


Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard


So go pick up your copy and read with me. You know you want to. Just remember, though, Sam Donovan is in my hut. No stealing!


Deadline: July 15th (I know I am not giving you a month, but this one is not difficult to find... I don't think)

Ooooh! I'm in. Although, this isn't my favorite Howard, it is good.

I almost bought this at B&N the other day after seeing that excerpt on Jill's blog. This is good motivation. I'm going to try to find it somewhere used or use a coupon.

So we have to have read the book by July 15? Or have it to start reading it on July 15?

Yay! Now I just need to find it. JULY 15th is my BIRTHDAY!

Shannon said...

Oh, sorry! Have the book finished by July 15th.

Ciara- Really? You too? I swear I know 80 bazillion people who were born that day. What in the world is goign on in the middle of October that so many women are getting knocked up?

Oh, wow! I have been wanting to read this. Okay. I'm in.

Oooh - this book is loved by me too! I've read it a number of times, so I can play even if I don't reread it in time - which I could probably do anyway since I love this book.

Ana said...

Ok, I want to read this one as well! I am in! yupiii!

This one is my favorite LH book - Sam totally rocks. But see, I'm keeping my hands to myself here. I can still look, right???

Hi, I'm a new reader to your blog, and I'd love to join along reading Mr. Perfect. I got my copy at the library.
I am fortunate to have three local, well stocked libraries that I visit often. Altho I still spend my share at 'bookstores',( who wouldn't? lol) I am avid promoter of one's local library.

Shannon said...

Welcome caitlin! I love my library, too. I finally figured out that I can request inter-library loan via the Internet. Best thing ever!

I reread the book over the weekend. ::sigh:: I do so love this book. I realized that I should have answered on of the DIK questions that I left off. I am Jaine. Holy cow, am I ever her! Well, except for having Sam Donovan as my neighbor. I do have him in my hut...

So, how does this book club thing work?

Just finished the book -- happy to post a review at alphaheroes, or do I wait for 7/15 and something to happen here??

Shannon said...

I will put up a post on the 15th and everyone gets to go cray with the commenting and squeeing. :)

Well, I finally got my review up (shamefaced). It was sort of a victim of summer-induced procrastination, but I *did* get it done!
