Half way through and LOVING it! Hoping to finish it during son's nap. :)

Dawn - She Is Too Fond of Books

Sigh. Son's 'summer baseball' (AKA 'summer sweatball') will keep me out past chat time.

I do have a question for Ms. Carner, though. I *think* I remember her saying that her own grandmother faced a struggle between the pull of tradition/family and a desire to pursue her art. The writing in this novel is so vivid - descriptions jump right off the page - has Ms. Carner herself had any training/experience in visual arts?

Thanks - will look for the archived show when it's posted.

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.
