    Default September 2013 Book Club! :)

    September is here, and that means another book club selection! Our book for the month of September will be:

    The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazelís story is about to be completely rewritten.
    Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Greenís most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Our chat discussion will be held on Saturday, September 14th at 10am CST

    Watch for a discussion thread around the 7th or so. The Scrap Your Read Challenge will be posted around the 15th and you will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.

    We look forward to chatting and reading with you!

    I started the book yesterday and continued this morning. I am about one-third through and I am really enjoying this! I have never read anything like this before and am very happy I decided to join back in this month.
    And since I'm Dutch, it's fun to read a little about my country and culture through someone else's eyes. I hope it will not turn to stereotypes, though it doesn't seem like it now.

    I got the book the other day and my 16 year old told me she approved of my reading choice, apparently it is the book she has tried to get me to read all summer!! lol

    So far I am in chapter 4 (almost done) and I am enjoying it. I just wish I read faster! Aiming to be done by chat night!!

    No, the chat wasn't successful. However, it's ok! With the malware warning and the forum update issues the past few days, I wondered if anyone would be able to attend (I had issues even getting the site to load so I could enter the chatroom!). Becky and I are working on another day/time to reschedule the chat before the month is over with. We'll update you ladies in a day or so when we've gotten everything decided.
