It sounds like you're having a wonderful time! I can't believe your baby is 7 months old already!


Great pictures! It looks like you had a good time.


I need to read these books so I can follow along. It sounds like a wonderful time!

It looks like a wonderful time! I commented on another one of your posts with the ice-breaker questions, but don't want it to get lost--I've been loving all your reports from Deep Valley (Mankato!) The pics bring back such memories, I was there for a big weekend, probably ten or twelve years ago now. (I think they had just bought Betsy's house, but we could go in Tacy's). The bench, the houses, the museum with that mannequin in the wedding dress--it's all so great! Thanks for sharing.


Can I just thank you for reporting on this convention? I haven't gotten to read anything about it until now. I wanted to go SO BADLY, and I even live in Minnesota, but my Americorps summer job did not allow me to take any days off, and my good friend got married the same weekend. I am so marvelously happy to hear how well everything went, and I can only hope that I will NOT miss the next convention (unlike both 2006 and 2009).

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.
