Hello again on Saturday Night. I am in South Florida with family as we are holding a party memorial tomorrow to celebrate my Dad's life (died July 3). There were some other activities today but I have stayed in my hotel room as I am dragging with a sinus cold. I hope by sleeping most of the day I will feel better tomorrow and not get wiped out by the drive home on Monday.
Thank you to all who shared last week.
We had a number of commenters who do not read sports fiction (6 plus Natasha hasn't tried any.) Llehn mentioned Quidditch but I don't think we had that in mind. LOL
For those of you who like romance and might want to check out good sports fiction romance here are the names of authors that were mentioned: Susan Elizabeth Phillips (football), Rachel Gibson (hockey), Jaci Burton (mentioned by several - football, baseball and hockey), Deirdre Martin (hockey), Jill Shalvis and Kate Angell (baseball). Also Abby shared Any Given Christmas by Candis Terry. This looks like a cute read for Christmas time. :-)
Well out of 16 of us 10 agreed the baggy, saggy pants look should go away! A couple commenters agreed with the leggings as a not good look especially for heavier women and a couple picked Uggs. I had to laugh at Jane saying the day glow shirts could go as I had just bought day glow shirts for the grandkids on the Alaska tour. They are young enuf to enjoy them. :-) I also laughed at marybelle's comment: "Mutton dressed up as lamb, or even worse, children made up & dressed up way beyond their years."
The Winner from SBB #65 comments is: #13 winnie There are still 6 'love' books to pick from and 1 Christmas choice (I guess I'll have to add some titles to that list soon). Winnie please choose a book (or GC if international) from the remaining Love Books List for Giveaway, remaining Christmas Giveaway Book, OR pick from the Updated ARC/Review List and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks by completing the WINNER FORM.
Q1. Margaret asks: If you are a member of an online book club and a in person book club member is there one that you prefer??
A: I haven't been able to be very consistent with the online book club... either I don't care for the book chosen or I don't get it into my schedule. I do enjoy my church Ladies' Book Club as we get to read an inspirational title (various fiction but always Christian) and we enjoy meeting about every six weeks to share discussion.

Q2. I thought of this question to go with question 1: If you were to recommend a book for Book Club reading what book would it be??

A: Here is a link to the books we have read at our Book Club. I have chosen the books, with member input, over the past two years or so. In addition to picking Christian titles I generally try to get lower priced books so that most everyone can afford the book. This months reading for discussion in early October is: Broken Angel by Sigmund Brouwer.
Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I will draw from the suggestions I used the month before and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions but some of you others might want to get in a question or two as we have a few people submitting most of the questions so far. Either way - it works for me. :-) The question list is being replenished! Thanks for sending in questions!
