13 books for 2013 – Book Club

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Hi there!
Lets read 13 great books in 2013…shall we?

First book (my choice, Katie gets to pick February’s!): “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society“.
So far, I’m in love! It’s compelling! Written in a series of letters which go back and forth from an amazingly unique and refreshing group of very eclectic characters, I literally can’t put it down. Love that!

Have you read it?

Want to pick the next book? You do…

Get in on the (nerdy) fun!

Books + Charity Donations = Brilliant!

A friend sent me this link to We Give Books, an organization that helps people to donate children’s books to the charity of their choice.  Check them out at http://www.wegivebooks.org/

Yesterday, I read a couple, but my favorite (it actually brought tears to my “ojos”) was “Before you were born, mi amor”

More from their website:

We Give Books is a free website that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don’t have them, simply by reading online.

Simply choose the charity you want to read for and then select the books you want to read. For each book you read online, we donate a book to a leading literacy group on your behalf.

The more you read, the more we give.
