Friday, November 4th for "The Good Earth"

Let's plan for this Friday, November 4th at my (Kris's) home for our Book Club Discussion. Of course we will want to eat Chinese food! Let's start at 6:30pm. Let me know if this will be a problem. There is a movie for this made about 1939 I believe and I've ordered it from Netflix. I hope you all have enjoyed this wonderful book about prerevolutionary China as much as I have and what life was like for women in Asian cultures at that time. I hope to see you all Friday evening!

Book Discussion: The Good Earth

Hi Everyone!
Lest you think I have forgotten that this was my book pick (I didn't) or that I haven't read the book (I have) or that I don't want to get together (I do!) I'm finally getting around to suggesting a date for our book discussion of Pearl Buck's "The Good Earth". I hope you all have been enjoying it. This is the second time I've read it and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed reading this book! It's wonderful reading about a culture so different than ours, but yet we see the same family problems happening regardless of time and place.

I was thinking of having the discussion Nov 4 or 11th. I think either Friday will work for me. Please let me know if one of those days will work for you and I'll pick a day that seems to work for most of us. Happy reading!
