Having Fun with the Book Club!

Last week I hosted our monthly (sometimes bi-monthly) Bloomington Booksters Club meeting!  The book I chose is Zeitoun by Dave Eggers (his What is the What is also good).

It was exciting to see what everyone thought about the book...it was a somewhat provocative discussion given the subject matter (Katrina, racial profiling, post 9/11 U.S.).  In the end, I think we all agreed that it was a very eye-opening book.  

ALSO...I served up some N'awlins food to keep with the theme of the book :)  Shrimp and okra gumbo, red beans and rice, and cajun cake...yummm!

If you want to check out the B-town Booksters Blog...you can meet our members here!

4/5 stars.

My little Pipsqueak!

How cute is this little feller?!  I mean check out those ears!!

He's a baby Corgi that is gonna join our family!  And since Corgis are little dog-hobbits, we're going to name him Pippin :)  ...or....since he's orange and white we're going to name him Nemo...so indecisive!  He comes home with us Friday, so we need to figure it out ASAP!

**UPDATE:  Aaaaand Pippin was his name-o!! :)
