It was a good show, wasn't it? I'm on the reserve list for The Cheerleader at my library. If it arrives and I can't read it in time, I'll buy it. Wouldn't it be great if they could get a Rediscoveries line of books?


Finally had a chance to listen to this interview, which I enjoyed, but am surprised Lizzie has never read all of Louisa May Alcott or any Betty Cavanna at all. Nancy Pearl, on the other hand, is a true kindred spirit and even loves Rosamund DuJardin!

I <3 Nancy Pearl (and the Seattle Public Library!). I got the action figure for my sister who is a librarian.

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.
