I'm excited about this! I think a Blog Talk Radio show is a great idea.

I love A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. It has been a favorite of everyone in my family every since my Dad bought a copy at a used book store when I was a kid. He and my Mom bought my sister and I our own copies. One of the best parts about being a high school English teacher was getting to share this book with my students. I think a radio show about this book would be excellent!


Popular book. Classic Reads Book Club at
is reading book for summer. I think I'll plan on doing both. Thanks for letting readers know.


They should definitely do a radio show. I would love to hear them chat about it. Don't worry Jennifer, I actually read this one and other than remembering that I liked it, I don't remember much of anything else. This will be as good as reading it the first time.


I'd enjoy hearing a radio show from them. And this is so weird...just yesterday I was commenting to a friend that there are so many 'classics' that I haven't read. Now's my chance to fill that void in my reading lists! This book is on my shelf, I'll be getting it down & dusted off.


You have got to read this one, Jennifer. It is a classic! I love it and read it every few years. It is so quintessentially American (and New York!).


I'm definitely joining in - I haven't read January's pick either! It would be very cool if you got them to go on air about the book club.

Oooh, sounds good!

I've been meaning to read this ... you hear such good things about this book. My daughter even has a copy on her book shelf (if I can make it across her floor!). I'll have to read it soon.


I've never read it! I'm in!

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.
