Okay, if you’ve read the post before this one then you know that I took my mom to see, The Family That Preys, yesterday. While we waited for the movie to start, we watched the previews of movies to come. One of the movies to come. One that caught my attention was the new movie starring Queen Latifia, Alisha Keyes and Dakota Fanning. The Secret Life of Bees. My ears immediately perked up when they said that this movie was based on a book and I remember whispering to my mom; “Imma go get that book tomorrow.”
So, here it is tomorrow and what did I do. Well, first up I woke up from a horribly realistic dream, where I murdered a family bully. That was not cool. I literally woke up in tears. Once I got over that, I went and got a hair cut. Yes, I am look very cute today and then went to Border’s Books to see if I could find my book. The Secrete Life of Bees, by Sue Monk Kidd; only fourteen bucks. It is lying right here beside me.
Now, before I open up a page and begin to read it I have to ask….Anybody out there willing to join me in reading this book? I know, I ain’t Oprah, but I have been trying to get other bloggers to start a blog book club. So, since I can’t get anyone else to do it, I figured I’d take a shot at it. So, what do you say? Any takers? I know you good people read, because you are dedicated readers to the world of BLOGS.
I’ve never done the book club thing before, although I really do enjoy reading. That being said, I am not one of those read a book in a day kind of people. I like to make a good book linger on, like good sex. I like to make it last until I can stands it no more. So, I read in stages, during breaks, and such. If I had the money, I’d have wall to wall books in my house, because I love the written word so much. If I can just get a handful of you to join me in enjoying these written words, and maybe discussing them later, I’ll be one happy camper.
