Kent Free Library Book Club

It seems that many quilters are also readers, so I thought it would be appropriate and fun to blog about some of the books that I have recently read.

I decided to join a book club sponsored by our local library, Kent Free Library.  The group meets once a month and we have tea or coffee while discussing our latest book.  So far, I've totally enjoyed being in the group and reading the books that were chosen.  I started in February with Liar Temptress, Soldier Spy written by Karen Abbott.  It was an amazing book and well researched!  I learned so much about the Civil War that I had never realized and also discovered the many rolls women played during that period in history.  I highly recommend it!

Our next selection was The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline.  Everyone in our club liked this historical fiction selection.  Again, I learned about some interesting facts from our American history. If you have never heard about orphan trains, be sure to check out this book.   This is a good story!  

The book we are reading this month is Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel.  I saw the movie, which I enjoyed, but am looking forward to reading the book this month.  I'll let you know what I think about this book in May after out next meeting.

Happy spring reading to all my quilting friends and remember you can always listen to a book on CD or on your Kindle while you are quilting.
