I love skype! My parents live in Spain and we talk on Skype at least twice a week. It is amazing in its clarity and quality. My boys can see their grandparents, that is for sure the sweetest part. They bring toy after toy to 'show grandpa'.

The slumber party sounds so fun!!!


What an innovative way to use Skype! I am now thinking that after my classes this summer, I can still keep in contact with fellow students and have some informal book talks via skype. Thank you so much for this very useful information!

This sounds like a great idea. I heard of skype from my brother. Our group has done many conference calls. The problems is that we do get star struck. We don't know what to say when there is not a face connected this may solve the problem. I am not tech-savy yet. Yes, I do blogs but tried twitter and just don't get the hype. It seems too confusing. But maybe sometime I will have the time to learn both and connect it with our book club. Thanks for the post.
Have a great weekend.


I will have to share this with my book club. We are always looking for a better way to connect with authors. Sometimes the cell phone just doesn't cut it.


That's pretty neat. Technology is making it easier to connect, that's for sure. We are becoming the future that we envisioned when we were growing up. All we need now are the flying cars.

I read this book last summer after a trip to a Toronto bookstore, I loved it so much that my book group read it last fall.

Everyone should read it - it's a wonderful story. I'm so happy to see some buzz around this book.

You can read my review at:

Dawn - She Is Too Fond Of Books

I would love to do something like this; my groups have been reluctant to do even phone-in speaker phone chats with authors ... I'll keep suggesting it, one day they'll cave!

And, Ti, along with flying cars we need those meals in pill form that Jane Jetson used to dispense :)


Between work and physical therapy from a car accident, sadly I haven't had much time to read. But I loved this book, The Birth House!! It was one of those books I fell asleep reading (read til my eyes burned from tiredness), got to work a little late and wouldn't answer my phone. It was that good.

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.
