October Book Club Meeting

So this month's book was Atonement by Ian McEwan.

Before I started reading the book I was flipping through the channels on TV and came across the movie.



So I watched it.

Which may or may not have been a good thing. The book is really close to the movie so that made the book seem really drawn out and boring to me. I did like the movie though even though it's sad.

We discussed the book for quite a bit longer than we have discussed some of the other books. 2 ladies didn't read the book but watched the movie. One lady read about 1/2 the book then watched the movie and one other lady watched the movie and read the book like I did and 2 didn't watch the movie at all. Funny how all the different perspectives came about with the people who watched/read or didn't!

Next months book is

The Chocolate Lover's Club. I need to go reserve it at the library site!

I used to read sooo much a long time ago.
I haven't read ANY book in a long time. I bought Twilight for my son and I still haven't ready it.

I really need to put aside my "group naps" (even though I'm the only one who participates in them) and actually start reading again.

I haven't picked up a book since life after the eye doc appointment. I need glasses for reading, driving & computer. Pretty sure I'd be in big trouble if my doc knew I was blogging without glasses ... shh!
Typically I read the book before I see the movie but lately the last movie I seen was A Bee Movie so ...

The movie was so very sad that I couldn't bring myself to read the book!
