As is often the case, we spend as much time talking about what else we're reading and what we want to read for next time as we do the books selected. We had so much fun this time, in fact, that we picked three books for March!
- Room by Emma Donoghue (my review): Room was my favorite read of 2010, so I'm thrilled someone else suggested it.
- Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda (my review): I suggested Secret Daughter because I adored it when I read it last year, but more importantly, I think the other group members will really enjoy it. I'm eager to discuss this one too.
- Running Away to Home: Our Family's Journey to Croatia in Search of Who We Are, Where We Came From, and What Really Matters by Jennifer Wilson: Jennifer Wilson is a Des Moines author, and as the descriptive subtitle lets you know, this family decides to take a family sabbatical to Croatia. There's certainly the local factor that intrigues me, but I'm also fascinated by taking a family sabbatical. I confess to thinking of travel as something I loved when I was single, continue to love to do with Mr. Nomadreader, but I can't imagine traveling in that way once we have a child. I'm looking forward to sharing in their journey.
Look for my review of Running Away to Home in March. Until then, happy reading!
