I don't want to fall behind again and I am surprised that I remembered so....

Nominate a theme for our January Reads.

Babs | 258 comments If January is National Braille Literacy Month how about something on Helen Keller or Anne Sullivan?


message 3: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (sarah23l) While the "Feast of Fabulous Wild Men" day sounds deliciously intriguing, I think I'm going to choose "National Popcorn Day." We could choose a book that has a movie adaptation and commit to reading & watching both versions and comparing them afterwards.

Sounds great! Keep 'em coming. It sounds like it will be an interesting month!


message 5: by Colleen (new)

Colleen (nightoleander) | 676 comments I like Sarah's idea! How about a book where the main character(s) experience a rebirth since it is a new year and people make resolutions to make a better self and all?


message 6: by Lyn (Readinghearts) (last edited Dec 07, 2010 12:57PM) (new)

Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) I like all of the ideas so far. We could tweak Babs' idea just a little and say any book with a blind protagonist or main character. There are some really good ones out there.

How about a cozy mystery to "cuddle up" on the couch with.

Babs | 258 comments I like that idea...wish I had a fire place to go along with the mystery novel! But yes a blind protagonist or mian character would be great!


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) I would love that fireplace, too, but will have to settle for a couch and and a quilt.

Thanks Colleen - your idea is great too! I like the idea of rebirth and new beginnings to start out a new year!

Silver I just have to say that I thought Bath Safety Month was hysterical.

There were some interesting choices, but I am most drawn to the idea of Peculiar People Day


message 11: by Aly (new)

Aly (Alygator) | 204 comments haha!! I like Penguin Awareness day. I love penguins. But seriously I like National Sleep Day. How about Rip Van Winkle?!

On a side note, I think I will be participating in Male Watching day.


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) OOOO Aly, I'm telling! Actually, I'll just join you. Sounds good to me.

I alreadu read Wishing Trees, I just brought If I stay and I have The Dolphin People so...

I still have to catch up on passed monthly reads.


Lyn (Readinghearts) (lsmeadows) If I Stay is sort of sad and uplifting at the same time. It is a phenomenal book.

BTW John Shors from The Wishing Trees emailed me back and said he would happily join in but he doesn't know exactly when. He said that he is in Thailand finishing up his lateest book Cross Currents and he told me to tell this group "pass [his] thanks and to give everyone [his] best".
