And the winner is… Kristin Hannah’s The Great Alone. I’m slightly embarrassed to admit this book has been sitting on a shelf in my bedroom for months. I’ve heard such great things, I thought it would be a great option for our first official month of book club. In case you missed it, I posted about starting a book club last month and was initially going to kick it off with this book, until I realized how much I hated it. The Great Alone seems like a much better option. So here’s how book club will work. I want to give those of you who want to participate time to get the book (and time to read it), so we’ll reconvene back here on the blog on October 16. The other book club option was one my Mom recommended by Anna Quindlen, One True Thing. I plan on reading that as well, and if I have time I’ll share some thoughts about it in October. If any of you have other favorite authors, genres, etc. please let me know in the comments so I can take them into consideration for our next book. Happy reading.
P.S. This month’s wellness challenge focus is intellectual wellness, I’ll share some ideas and activities for that next Monday.
