Friday Linkups: Mystery Behind the Wall
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Blogger Hop Question:
If you are in a book club, where do you meet? A restaurant, someone's home, the library? If you are not in a book club why not?
I have been in two book clubs and in the first one we met at member's homes and in the 2nd one we met at a restaurant. I enjoyed the restaurant meeting more for some reason and that one seemed to go on longer. Both of those were associated with a Mom's Group I was in for awhile and so we were connected by kids and not necessarily common interests. While I met a lot of great people there were also a number I had nothing in common with and I gradually lost interest in attending and time just got to be in too short of supply. My local library has several clubs that I'm thinking about trying out at some point.
"I don't know what to do with myself," exclaimed Benny one day.
We're about halfway through summer vacation here and when the older kids were younger and I'm sure when the Tornado is a little bit older I heard this kind of think quite a bit about now. Something about the middle of summer always seems to drag for kids.
"I give up," he said. And that was something Benny Alden almost never said about anything.
I have a vague memory of this book so I do have a feeling Benny will be feeling better soon. I'm sure one of the other Alden kids will talk some sense into him!
What are some of your childhood favorites?
