BookClubSandwich: One Month and Counting!

Post image for BookClubSandwich: One Month and Counting!

The wait is almost over! BookClubSandwich, the online book club I host with Andi (Estella’s Revenge) will be discussing The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry exactly one month from today.

I haven’t started the book yet, but that’s because it’s on my Nook and Crusoe (the name of my Nook) is currently en route to Qatar with my friend Erin, who is traveling to an international science journalism convention. When Erin and I hung out on Thursday, she told me she didn’t have any books packed for her extremely long flights, so I offered for her to take Crusoe, which is loaded with books (including this one!). By the time Crusoe gets back, he will be more of an international traveler than me! But maybe that’s appropriate, given his namesake.

I started the book earlier this week, and am loving it (even if I did take a little detour to read a few other books). I’m hoping to finish it this weekend.

You’re such a nice friend to lend out your entire reader! You should have your friend (who, I must say, has an excellent name) take pictures of Crusoe in various exotic locations. I wish I could join you guys for this one, but alas, my July is far too packed. Maybe another time!

That’s a good idea! I will have to e-mail her and ask her to do that. I couldn’t think of anything more awful than being on a plane for that long with nothing to read.

Read part of it, got sidetracked, and I’m headed back to it this week or next. Looking forward to it! The early chapters were promising.

Excellent — that’s good to hear! I thought I saw on Twitter that it wasn’t wowing you, so I’m glad that changed (or that I’m thinking of someone else).
