The Page Turners

pageturners

The Page Turners is the name of the book club I’m in.  We started our book club in July 2010.  We have so much fun when we get together – we meet at one members house each month and we all bring something different to eat.  Many times we bring food that has to do with the book, or food mentioned in the book, but we don’t have any set rules.  I’ve tasted and made so many new things – just another way books help influence me!  We don’t always agree or like the books, but that is part of the fun.  Here is the list of books that we have read, most recent selections on the bottom.   ***my favorites
