Thanks Jennifer, I will choose The Forgotten Garden as it has been on my "to read" list the longest! Thanks for choosing - I will let you know how I get on with it!

Shirley | 4177 comments I have sent a couple of recommendations to Terri today.


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

I sent 2 recommendations to Jennifer. I also received Shirley's picks, and I chose Gilead. Looking forward to it!


message 7: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer | 235 comments Thank you Terri. I have put holds on both books. It will likely be Juventud as there is a copy available right now. I just added that book to my to-read list as someone in my in-person book club is from Columbia.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Jennifer, that's really cool. I didn't know much about Colombia before I read the book. It was a compelling read for me, hope you like it.

I was going to ask to have it be our library book club book but with only 1 copy in the province, I know it won't be picked. Looking forward to both of them.

Just finished Gilead Terri, and I thought it was extraordinary, a brilliant and beautifully written book!

So sorry I completely dropped the ball on this one what with being away. I was hoping to check this out while I was away but the Wi-Fi turned out to be so rubbish. I think Free did message me a few days. I tried messaging back but I don't think it sent properly. I have to go out and do food shopping and see my nanny but I will sort it all out when I am back later.

free, if you are reading this I am so sorry:(

Good to know, Greg. I'll be getting the book from the library tomorrow. Really looking forward to reading this.
