I've already read the book (so don't enter me in the book drawing) - and really enjoyed it. I chose it as my selection for my book group last year. We really enjoyed learning about the Camel Bookmobile. I hope there are many books being sent to the Camel Bookmobile.

Oh Yeah!!!
My company helps to support the Massai women and children in Kenya...I am so excited to receive a copy of this book!!!
I think this "mission" is fanastic!
Thank you!

Karen @ Planet Books

I would love to get my hands on this title!! Very cool way to giveaway books! You have to be on your toes... or have Google Reader!

Lisa C

This sounds like a fascinating book and I would love to read it. Thank you!


I hope I'm not being too greedy, but I couldn't pass this one up either:) Sounds like a wonderful book!

Julie P.

I've already read this book too, so I don't want to be entered for a free copy. I just wanted to let everyone know how much I enjoyed this book -- very interesting subject matter.

I have not read this book and it sounds like such a wonderful cause. Thanks!

Meg Waite Clayton

A great book and a great cause! I'm definitely enjoying listening to the interview.


This memorable book would be greatly appreciated. I enjoyed the interview.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
