Book Club Selection February and March

I was thinking of stopping book club because it has seemed {to me} that people weren’t really liking it.  But then I did the poll about what do you want to see on this ol blog and Book club had the second most votes.  Right behind tutorials.  Which was awesome to see because I LOVE a good read.  I especially LOVE that you guys like book club.  So here is the selection for February and March:

Girl in Translation

by

Jean Kwok

When Kimberly Chang and her mother emigrate from Hong Kong to Brooklyn squalor, she begins a secret double life: exceptional schoolgirl during the day, Chinatown sweatshop worker in the evenings. Disguising the more difficult truths of her life-like the staggering degree of her poverty, the weight of her family’s future resting on her shoulders, or her secret love for a factory boy who shares none of her talent or ambition-Kimberly learns to constantly translate not just her language but also herself back and forth between the worlds she straddles.

I love how books can bring us into a different world and teach us things we never would have known.  This book did that for me.

You have 2 mos to read it and then we will have our online meeting at the end of March.  {ok you have a little less than 2 mos}

As always, if you have a favorite book you would like to nominate for book club please leave a comment or email me.  

I have been thinking of having people guest host book club.  It would go something like this, you pick your favorite book and introduce it here on this blog and on your blog.  Then we will post the online meeting on both blogs also.  So your readers and mine can get to know you and your love of books.  If you are interested in guest hosting book club, let me know.   Until then, Happy reading!!
