Mark Twain 'Pudd'nhead Wilson'

     Bobbi has chosen a work by Mark Twain entitled 'Pudd'nhead Wilson'.  She will set the date of our discussion of this book.  It shouldn't be hard or very long.   As a side note it is recommended that you also read 'Those Extraordinary Twins', which was the original premise of our book.  Because there were two stories evolving Mark Twain separated the twins in 'Pudd'nhead Wilson' and then conjoined them in 'Those Extraordinary Twins'.  While the characters are still familiar to you from the first book the second could be an extension to your reading pleasure roughly 68 pages in length.  Mark Twain has written many books, essays and travel logs, I would encourage you to check them out and indulge in his humor and wisdom.

making the "magic" happen

Great discussion last night, girlfriends!
In honor of the book we just read, I've decided to "make the magic" happen here at my house. Instead of whining about the river that pretends to be my driveway, I've decided to think of it as a "moat" protecting my "castle". I will put on my "magic slippers" (mud boots) to ford the moat to feed the beautiful dragons (horses) that guard the castle.

Anyone else have any "magic" they want to share? :)

Fabulous Discussion Last Night

   Thank you Lorraine for hosting a great book discussion of or 16th book, A Little Princess.  We enjoyed the food:  Curry Chicken, rice, quiche Lorraine, curry lentils, Indian butter chichen with rice, two kinds of naan and great desserts: fruit tray, coconut barf,i kolaches, rootbeer cookies, brownies and strawberry cheese cake.  Everything was sooo good.  Thank you all for reading and keeping this group going.  Can you believe we have been going for two years!
