Book #29

The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan is our next bookclub choice:

One of our bookclub members posted a video on her blog of the author, Kelly Corrigan, thus generating huge amounts of interest in making this our novel of choice. Such high expectations we have in reading yet another new writer’s work, and with numerous high customer ratings both on Amazon and Barnes & Noble – how in the world can we go wrong? It’s just not happening here. Please don’t let us down, Corrigan!

We’re looking at 262 pages in 39 chapters and an Epilogue. The timeline goes like this:

No beach cover? Sorry, Chicken Lit’ers. Some of us will just have to pretend that we’re READING IN HAWAII. 😉

  1. I’m currently on ch 7. What? It’s that good! Who already has a copy?

  2. maksbestfriend says:

    I have it but haven’t started it yet..

  3. @maksbestfriend – I’ve stopped and will wait for you, mostly because you need this one on your trip. Just be warned that once you start, it’s really hard to put down again. 😮

    Do you want to come and help me pack? I am almost done except for the things that can’t be until the very end. I pack light, 24 pounds. Hubs is up to 39…but truth to tell, he is carrying two pairs of Teva’s (his and mine) and he is carrying gear.

    I am getting a delivery from the UPS Man Tuesday, Knit 2…finally got a refund from Barnes and Noble..we can read that too, taking it with me.

    Hopefully I will get some reading in tomorrow! 🙂

  5. @maksbestfriend – You don’t want me to help you pack… I’d be getting into the suitcase, putting your baggage over the weight limit! But I do wish you all the best. Hawaii – LOOK OUT!

    Great news about K2! I’m glad to hear you’ll have both along with you so that we can keep you on board during your vacation. Woohoo!! Keep us posted on the UPS delivery and your reading satus. 🙂

  6. @all – BTW in case you’re wondering, ‘Knit Two’ by Kate Jacobs will be our book #30. It promises to be a great sequel to ‘The Friday Night Knitting Club’. Got yours?

    Good morning! I ended up ordering Comfort Food in book form, even Mitch could not get it to upload correctly to I-Tunes from the the CD’s. I just don’t want to have to deal with that. So I have that book coming Wednesday and Barefoot: A Novel, by Elin Hilderbrand, too. I want plenty of reading material. And I have to say that I love having Amazon Prime! Getting things this quickly is wonderful!

  8. maksbestfriend says:

    Hi! I just started Chapter 8! Yes this book is that good! Goose bump good. I don’t know if I am going to make the discussion deadline, but I am working on it! :-0

  9. Dory says:

    Yeah yeah, I, as usual, waited til the last minute to order my books. I hope they arrive tomorrow.

    I mentioned to Becca… I have Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand sitting on the shelf too. Have you heard of it, read anything by her? Maybe for after Knit 2? Just wondering….

  10. maksbestfriend says:

    You told me about The Love Season by her which I started reading before one of our books, Life’s A Beach. I am going to work my way through it no matter what anyway, so I am up for anything! 🙂

  11. @maksbestfiend & @Dory – Haven’t heard of ‘Barefoot’ or ‘The Love Season’, but I did pick up 3 more today from B&N:

    ‘The Smart One and the Pretty One’ by Claire LaZebnik
    ‘Carpool Diem’ by Nancy Star
    ‘Paging Aphrodite’ by Kim Green

    They looked good to me, so I grabbed them! Let me know if you have and/or are interested in starting one of those down the road.

  12. maksbestfriend says:

    I put them in my shopping cart at Amazon.com….just waiting for bonus time!

  13. maksbestfriend says:

    I am at the stopping point.

  14. Finished w/ch 9. Not saying a word… except that I really do hope Dory’s book makes an appearance soon!

  15. maksbestfriend says:

    Guess what books I got on Half.com this evening? Yeppers! Only cost under $20.00! I am on a roll!

    I hope that D gets her book soon!

  16. How do I keep forgetting about Half.com? Great job there, @maksbestfriend! We’ll have to keep that site in mind as we move forward in our reads. 🙂

    Wishing for D’s book to arrive… *ohm*

  17. Dory says:

    Ya’ll go ahead without me for the first discussion, it’s ok. Really. It’s what I get for being a slacker! lol

  18. maksbestfriend says:

    You slacked? How is that?

  19. I’m just finishing ch 14 and should be at the halfway point by tomorrow. Discussion #1 to be posted on schedule – cover your eyes if you’re not there yet! 😮

  20. @All – currently on ch 36. Wow, do I ever get a kick out of Corrigan’s ‘voice’ in this novel! She’s someone I’d just love to meet!

  21. maksbestfriend says:

    I have the book with me but honestly haven’t cracked it open yet. Thinking I might tonight. It is raining where we are.

  22. @maksbestfriend – rain? in Hawaii?! But I bet it couldn’t be more lovely…? I’m over and out after an evening full of blustery snow. Hope to hear more from your neck of the woods (or ‘beach’, shall I say?) in the a.m., *zzzzzz*

  23. @All – just finished! Where is everyone? I’ll work on the discussion #2 post as everyone reads. Most excellent book choice, btw. 🙂 (Thanks again, @Dory!)

  24. maksbestfriend says:

    I just started Chapter 29….I have a bit to go..reading more tonight, not sure I will finish tonight or not, but will in the next 24 hours.
