Dear friends and fellow garden bloggers... the survey results are in and the December-January book selection for the Garden Bloggers' Book Club is...
Dear Friend and Gardener by Beth Chatto and Christopher Lloyd.
I'm excited about this selection because I loved Two Gardeners: Katharine S. White and Elizabeth Lawrence--A Friendship in Letters that many of us read last February. That book was also a compilation of letters between two gardeners and introduced me to two wonderful authors. As a result, I read two more books by Elizabeth Lawrence.
It's always a bit of a risk to choose a book I haven't read, but that is also the idea of the book club, to read books we haven't read and then share our thoughts and reviews of the book through a blog post or two.
My copy of Dear Friend and Gardener should arrive on my doorstep early next week. I hope you'll join me in reading this book over the next few months and post a review or your thoughts on the book in time for a January 31st virtual club post.
Through the survey, eight people who've never participated before indicated they plan to read this next book and join in the book club. That's wonderful! The more the merrier, and since this is a virtual book club there is room for everyone.
And speaking of room for everyone, there is still some time for readers who are going to post a review or thoughts on Green Thoughts by Eleanor Perenyi, the October-November selection, to do so. I'll post the "virtual club meeting post" on November 30th. Just let me know when you've posted, and you'll be included!
