Some updates for the Garden Bloggers’ Book Club
August-September Virtual Meeting.
I’ll be posting the August-September virtual meeting post on September 30th, so if you are planning to participate, please leave me a comment or send me an email so I can find you and grab a link to your post. Again, the August-September selection is the garden mystery A Hoe Lot of Trouble: A Nina Quinn Mystery by Heather Webber, or you can choose to read another garden mystery book and post about it. If you don't want to read a garden mystery or didn’t have time to do so, you can still participate by telling us about a real life mystery in your own garden. The more the merrier!
Thank you to all who participated in the book club survey. Based on the survey…
We will stick to a book every other month, so the next selection will be for October – November. We’ll also keep offering a related topic to post about for those who want to participate in the virtual meeting post, but don’t have time to read the book or for some reason can’t get the book.
Your comments were very kind and encouraging and helpful. Thank you!
October-November Book Selection.
Regarding annual asters, the author of our next book selection wrote… “I can’t resist them and invariably let optimism get the better of judgment, which come to think of it may be the first principle of gardening.” Can you guess which book was the one with the most votes in the survey?
Green Thoughts: A Writer in the Garden by Eleanor Perényi
I’ve had this book on my shelf for maybe twenty years, and it has been awhile since I read it. I’m excited to be reading it again and sharing favorite quotes and thoughts with others through the book club. I hope you are also pleased with this selection and will join us in reading this classic garden book. And if you don't have a chance to read this book and still want to post something in late November, post about what the quote above means to you as a gardener.
Happy Fall Gardening and Happy Reading!
