I'm going to try to join you guys on this book. It's a book I've wanted to read. I don't think with my schedule I can keep at 50 pages a week, so bear with me.

Irene | 909 comments I am going to skip this one. I could not find this title at any of my real or on-line libraries/loaning sources, nor could I find it at a reduced price. I just did not want to put out the $15 this time, which was the least expensive for which I could find it. I could find other titles by this author, just not this one.

Irene, I understand. Putting out cash for books every month can get expensive, especially if you participate in more than one book club. Our next read should be fairly inexpensive, if not free!


Susan Margaret (susanmargaretg) | 538 comments Irene, even if you do not have the book, you can still comment on the virtues in our discussion if you want. The same advice would apply to any of our other members too.

Greg I'll try to join too, though I'm not sure how fast I can get it. I'll look this weekend.


Susan Margaret (susanmargaretg) | 538 comments I'm happy that you are going to join us Greg and hope your book arrives quickly!
