Skype Book Club

We had Bookies on Skype last night. We had a few problems getting connected, but other than that, it was great. We had all six of us on the screen at once. Four of us had read the book, the Girl Who Fell From the Sky. It is about a biracial girl who survives extraordinary circumstances. I gave it an A, while Diane and Nora only gave it a B and B+. They said they listened to it on tape and were probably influenced by the reader, who made it seem sentimental. I thought it was quite believable. I especially thought the author was good at creating characters with depth.  I'll have to get Sheryl to grade it. She has an unusual perspective, having 7 biracial grandchildren.

We agreed that this was a great way to do Book Club. Next time I'll have to either clean my study or not take a picture! It's embarrassing!
