Last night the 22nd Street Book Club held a short organizational meeting, decided when, where, and how often to meet, and picked our first four books. All in 20 minutes. (We set a timer.)
We range in age from 15 to about 75 and our taste in books ranges from sci-fi/fantasy to philosophy with a lot of interest in mysteries. Our first four books are:
- The Last Kashmiri Rose by Barbara Cleverly
- Bel Canto by Anne Pratchett
- Death at La Fenice by Donna Leon
- Housekeeping by Marilyn Robinson.
That list could change as we settle in.
After our short meeting we watched the movie, "Miss Potter," about the life of Beatrix Potter. We were all charmed.
