Stealing this forum as a book group forum. If you participated in the previous book discussion or read Summer House to discuss it in January then come hang out here.

lol don't get too comfy though. Some members (including me) started a thread in one of these abandoned forums and tptb saw the Fbomb and had to wash their eyeballs out.

I love it, book club in the basement!  I will really get to doing more reading once the holiday is past.  Thanks for starting one on The Help, I read it last year and thought it was great.  I loaned it to MIL, but she is bringing it back this weekend so I can re-read it and participate in that discussion.  Nice work, Chris, starting all these separate threads, and great questions you found too!

Thanks Carole. I haven't read The Help but I got it for my niece for her Bday and got her the DVD for Christmas so I may end up reading it soon.

Love being in the basement - let's go retro and open a Disco!

Has anyone else read Hold Me Tight and Tango Me Home by  Maria Finn?

I thought it was excellent.  However, there aren't any copies available here - I got it from the library. She's a journalist and this is a Bio, not fiction.  Anyway, I recommend it .
