I went to a movie this weekend and saw the preview for the movie The Secret Of Bees, I have been meaning to read this book.  It has been on the top sellers list for 5 years and still counting.  Is anyone interested in reading it, kinda like a book group?

Do you mean Secret Life of Bees by Monk?  I read that a few years ago and liked it very much.

Or, is this a different book?

I read the book with my book club several years ago and we all really enjoyed it.  If you enjoy books about life and not necessarily thrills and chills, you will enjoy this book.  The people are real and you care what happens to them.

If you mean The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Anne Monk................and if anyone needs a copy, there's one on my bookshelf.  I just finished it a week or so ago.  It was an interesting book...................as someone already said, its about real life...........not a frilly romance, nor thrills and chlls.  But about life and people caring about each other.

The one on my bookshelf has the discussion questions, etc to be used by book groups................it's there if anyone needs a copy.

I would also be interested in a discussion for this book.  It has been on my shelf for awhile now and this would be a great excuse to finally break down and read it! lol

I listened to this as an audio book  a few months ago.  If anyone can get hold of it in that form, I absolutely recommend it.  The reader for the main character's voice just captured her so perfectly.  I'm sure you folks will enjoy this tale in any form.  The characters in the story really caught my heart - especially the little girl.

Yay, my library has informed me the book The Secret Life of Bees is availale.  I can pick it up in a couple of days.

So.....are you (or some of you still)  on board, and ready to have a "book club" here on PBS to discuss it?    Please let's reconfirm.    I am very excited to read it, as I've heard so many good things about it.

How about that those of of who are interested, will agree to read the book ASAP, so that we are ready to discuss it beginning on a certain future date ......... say 2 weeks from today, which is Monday September 22nd.  Anybody on board?? 

Thanks.  Just chime in!!

Unfortunately, I guess I'm out. I ordered it a week ago and am still "waiting for member" so I doubt that I will have it in time to read on the plane. Also, I won't be back until Oct 1 and probably not functioning in this time zone until the 2nd or 3rd.

I'll let you all know if anything changes. Hope you all have a great discussion. I wish I could be part of it. Guess it wasn't meant to be at this time.

I read this several years ago and it was fabulous! It's not a book I would have picked out on my own. I went into the bookstore asking for recommendations because I was about to have surgery and knew I would be on bed rest a while. I wanted to buy more books then I already had in mind. The bookseller suggested this book so I trusted her and I'm glad I did. Wonderful story!!!

Hey you guys, life has been crazy so I haven't been writing in.

I posted new info about the book club. I called it Confirmation of The Secret of the Bees.  Check it out.

PM me if you have any questions.
