It’s that time… time for the first discussion of book #27, Life’s a Beach. This novel seems to just *zip* by in comparison to book #26, doesn’t it? So then let’s get chattin’ with a few questions from the online reader guide, such as these:
- Are you a Ginger? Do you have a sister just like Geri? Do you think most women you know fall into one category or the other?
- Have you ever met an Allison Flagg in real life? Was she dead-heading a beach rose?
- The father in Life’s a Beach is a bit of a dump picker. Do you have a family member who can’t stay away from the dump? Is there a Take It or Leave it, a Put ‘n’ Take, or a Swap Shop in your town? (Or a great dumpster in your city?) What’s the best thing you ever found there?
- Ginger Walsh, the heroine of Life’s a Beach, is transitioning from a life in sales to what she hopes will be a more fulfilling life as a sea glass artist. Claire Cook always wanted to be a novelist, yet didn’t go after her dream until she was in her forties. If you decided to quit your current job, what dream would you pursue?
- What are your thoughts on Cook’s writing style? Based on your first impression, would you read/listen to another of her novels?
Or perhaps you have other things you want to discuss about the first half of this book? That’s perfectly fine, too. Sometimes thinking outside of the box (or pre-formulated reader guide questions) happens!
As you were saying?
