TIME TRAVEL MOVIE CLUB (COMING IN MARCH)
We are pleased to announce that we will begin a Time Travel Movie Club in March. These movies need not have a book tie-in. Be thinking now about movies you’d like to nominate for us to watch. Ideal nominations would be available to stream online for free. We’d probably have the most participation if it were available as a Netflix instant watch option. A good place to find out where a movie's available to stream is http://www.canistream.it/. Kevin suggests www.instantwatcher.com to search for streamable Netflix movies. And don't forget Tej's list of time travel movies available to stream now: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

TIME TRAVEL BOOK CLUB
Second Sight by David Williams Second Sight by David Williams is the book that we’ll be reading together beginning February 15th. This was chosen because it’s a time travel book with a movie tie-in. The movie is called “The Two Worlds of Jenny Logan”. Our male hosts have kindly deferred the hosting of the book club to me this month since it’s a time travel romance and I’m the token female host. Luckily, for them, I’m in a rare romance-reading mood and didn’t object. I suppose having a romance for February is an accidental ♥’s Day bonus. The Kindle edition is listed at $10.37 and the paperback is listed for a couple of dollars more. If these prices seem cost-prohibitive and you wouldn’t be able to read it at that price, one of our members has offered to purchase the book for a limited number of group members that wouldn’t otherwise be able to join in the discussion. If this is you, please message me and I’ll put you in contact with her. https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

NOMINATIONS FOR NEXT MONTH'S BOOK CLUB
Next month's theme will be Time Travel Humor. Nominations are open for 1 week here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

BOOK GIVEAWAY
An Extended Journey by Paul Sherman An Extended Journey by Paul Sherman is currently our giveaway book of the month. If you didn’t read it with us when it was our book of the month, drop by and enter to be one of 5 winners of this lovely book by answering the following discussion question: “If you were transported to the past by any means, are there circumstances under which you would intentionally change the future? Save the world? Win the lottery? Make up with that lost love? Think big or think small, but have fun and watch out for butterflies. “ https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

NEW TIME TRAVEL BOOKS BY GROUP MEMBERS
Beautiful Wreck by Larissa Brown Beautiful Wreck by Larissa Brown was released this month. I’ve mentioned it before, but I think it deserves another mention. If you do like time travel romances (and even if you don’t), this one set in Viking Iceland will instantly be among your favorites. I’d go as far as to say this is my current favorite time travel novel (technically “time slip” novel). If you were a fan of the Outlander series … this is far better. Not convinced yet? http://evanescentepiphany.wordpress.c...

The Unintentional Time Traveler (Time Guardians, #1) by Everett Maroon The Unintentional Time Traveler by Everett Maroon(February 24). https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... He was previously and might still be offering an advanced copy for an honest review: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
