Wine and Words Book Club – Dec. 29 2020

Everyone but Kay and Karen was able to meet online using Microsoft Teams.

We discussed the book for January,  Doc. Sandie listened to the audible version (15 hours) while gift-wrapping and really enjoyed the narrator’s voices for all the different characters. Cindy read Doc at the same time she listened to the biography of Grant by Ron Chernow. It was such a big book (1100 pages/48 hours on audible) that she decided to listen to it on audible and really enjoyed the narration. She said the two books take place about a decade apart, so it was interesting to read books in basically the same time period in history.

At the November meeting we chose the following books for the next two months:

January – Keeper of Lost Things (Karen)

February – Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, by Kim Michele Richardson.

We decided to email everyone prior to the next meeting and ask for suggestions of books they would recommend for March, April and May.

Books members are reading:

Cindy read Moonflower Murders, by Anthony Horowitz (AKA Magpie Murders, Book Two). She also read Squeeze Me a satire about an escaped python at a Florida resort (Mari Lago?) and the associated characters we will recognize from today’s political arena.

Cindy said Village Books is good about social distancing, restricting the number of customers, etc.

Ann is reading His Only Wife, which is an intriguing story about a women who enters an arranged marriage with a guy that didn’t even show to the wedding.

We talked about what our families did over the holidays. Several families gathered virtually, and Cindy’s family watched Die Hard (Cindy called it the best Christmas movie of all time) together online and were able to chat out their favorite lines during the movie.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!

The next meeting will be at 4 PM on Tuesday, January 26, 2021.
