A perfect description.

Are there any book club reading guides/discussion points for this eb white book.

Book Club Girl

Kat - I've done some searching online and don't see a reading group guide. But I think it would be easy to get a discussion going - you could start by talking about the period of time that EB White wrote this, and how it applies today. If book club members have visited NY - does this correspond to what they think of as NY and NYers? Do they have similar emotions about the place they live, or other places? Why does NY have this reputation - is it deserved? Has anyone in the group lived in NY? If they could, would they and why, or why not? Those are off the top of my head as I haven't read this in a long time. Hope it helps!

This is a great book and worth reading!

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.
