The nice thing about an online book club as compared to one that meets in real-time is that you can run it in “virtual time”, so that if one or two people participate later on, they can still be part of the fun.
In real-time, if El and Bill had shown up yesterday and today at my doorstep, I would have had to say, “um, sorry, the club met on Friday”. Instead I get to say “Great, happy to have a few more people along for the fun!”
So, if you haven’t read all the reviews and opinions and write ups from fellow garden bloggers on the book, The Essential Earthman by Henry Mitchell, you can go back to the original “club meeting” post and get yourself caught up. Then check out El’s post and Bill’s post for some different perspectives on the book.
You should also go back if you read the original club meeting post early on because I also “snuck in” a post from Old Roses after originally publishing it. And I ran across something else I wrote based on something I read in “Earthman” that you might be interested in if you haven’t read it already.
That’s it I think. I really do thank all for participating. It has been fun to first read a gardening book, second share thoughts on the book with everyone, and finally, read what others think.
On to December. The book selection is “My Favorite Plant” edited by Jamaica Kincaid. Even if you don’t have time to read the book, you can still participate by writing a post about your own favorite plant, let me know via a comment you’ve done so, and then I’ll publish a wrap up post with links to all posts on December 30th or thereabouts.
