The 10-12 Book Club met last Tuesday night, although our ranks were down by 12--seven excused, and five NOT excused (ahem!). It was a strangely subdued meeting for those of us who attended, as everyone seems to be in mid-semester slump. Many of the people who couldn't come were working on their college essays or applications, since the early decision deadline was last week, and the rest were missing due to either sports or band.
For December's meeting, we will be reading and discussing Eleanor and Park, by Rainbow Rowell.
Those of you who missed club can pick up a copy at either
Central or Buena Vista.
Other books we considered, in order of preference:
The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss
I'll Give You the Sun, by Jandy Nelson ("Someday," I sighed.)
Side Effects May Vary, by Julie Murphy
Proxy, by Alex London
Beka Cooper: Terrier, by Tamora Pierce
Where the Stars Still Shine, by Trish Doller
Bellweather Rhapsody, by Kate Racculia
(We have dropped the last two from our considerations list due to lack of interest, but I still say you would like them!)
The next club meeting is on December 6.
