2012 Kickoff

The year 2012 promises to be an exciting year for the book club.  First there's the CBC CanadaReads competition in a couple of weeks. I'll be attending the live tapings and posting pics.  I haven't picked a favourite yet among the finalists. The selections are all non-fiction books and I'm having difficulty being honest with my feelings. Is it OK to prefer a book on hockey instead of a young girl's account of her imprisonment? I'm curious to see how the celebrity panel will handle these types of questions.

The next big news is the club picked its January read. We'll be discussing The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak in mid February. Look for a review by Valentines Day.
