To follow precedent, confessions first. I cannot, for the life of me, locate the page that I used to record our personal ratings for the NFSCD Winter 2017 book This Old House. Fail. I apologize fully. I wont even attempt to shift the blame… I mean, clearly both Democrats and Republicans are at fault, but uh, not I suppose for this particular failing (but you have my permission to blame them anyway). Confession\deflection portion complete. Moving on.
So, to continue catch up, next we read The Man Who was Thursday by GK Chesterton in May and the NFSCD ratings were as follows:
Fantastic NFSCD Member Quality Personal Pref/Would you recommend/Read more from same author?
Robin 9 10 – Yes to the right person and yes would read more.
Theresa 2 2 – Yes to people like my son but no more for me.
Abby 4/5 6/7 – No and no.
Erica 5 8 – No and no.
Sanna 9 9 – Yes to some and yes would read more.
Heather 9 10 – Yes, I loved it and yes.
A varied response for sure! I hope I am not alone in that I love that. I consider it a sign of a great book club pick because we are able to see our different perspectives and tastes come out. Super fun discussion too! Thank you Robin! (And Dee, we missed you. 🙂 )
Our next book is Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore (This was released as a film earlier this year so we may want to pursue a movie night in September, yes? No ?)
Date: Tuesday, August 29th
Host and location: Abby and her abode.
Reminders: This next meet will also serve as our August Review so please come with critiques of our last year (ex. “Our club blogger is such a flake, am-I-right?”) and ideas for our next NFSCD year such as themes, page caps or minimums, challenges, etc. Sanna is our fall host (yessssss!) and we still need hosts for Winter, Spring and Summer 2018. Also, feel free to invite anyone you think is NFSCD material to our fall meet (this usually falls in October or November) as the group is temporarily open at the beginning of our NFSCD year. I know of two people already that may join our group so that’s always exciting.
See you all very soon!
