We went out to an #Irish pub for our latest #ThePoconoBookClub meeting today 😁! I stuck with a strawberry and arugula chicken salad, and a Guinness. 😋

All ten of us really loved this selection! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Next up: Gentleman in Moscow.

TheSpineView I have The Great Alone but have not read it yet. Loved A Gentleman in Moscow. Hope you do too. 4w
Andrew65 @TheSpineView This is a really good book, but might want tissues. Great for the #ReadwjthMrBook February theme, #tearjerker 4w
Andrew65 Love, love, loved The Gentleman in Moscow. Enjoy! 4w
TheSpineView @Andrew65 Yes it would be. I might read A Dog's Promise for that challenge. 4w
Andrew65 @TheSpineView I‘m still trying to choose a book. 4w

We had our first 2020 meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub yesterday afternoon 😁!!! We all talked about whichever book we had won at December‘s grab bag at our last meeting. I won the Connelly book and it was my first Bosch—not bad, not bad at all. I‘ll have to start with the first now though, lol. Full house of great books discussed! I had cream of chicken soup, garlic-dill clams, toasted bread, unsweetened iced tea, & whisky hot chocolate!

WanderingBookaneer I am loving Renee Ballard 2mo
Andrew65 That‘s a surprise, it being your first Bosch. 2mo

Another great year-end book club meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub!!! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 So happy to have such a great group of readers meet once a month to discuss books and how they relate to our lives. 😊

We read the tagged book, which received completely mixed reviews—some of us really enjoyed it, some of us thought it was okay, some of us hated it 😆.

Then we had our annual Holiday Grab Bag 🎄! Our prize is our January read! 😎👍🏻👍🏻

Today we had our monthly meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub, and it was GREAT! We met at #RubyTuesday for this one. Everyone loved “The Library Book”! Accompaniment was: garden salad, bacon cheeseburger sliders, #TATERTOTS(!!!), and raspberry iced tea. MMMmmmm 😋! We always have a blast at our meetings, this one went over 30 minutes longer than the scheduled time. 😆👏🏻

We‘ve wrapped up another superb meeting of the awesome #ThePoconoBookClub! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 It was great having the absolutely fantastic @Molly_the_mezzo and @jenbradley2017 out! 🤗🤗🤗 Everyone loved the book!

We tried a new eatery today and sat outside. The food was phenomenal and the weather was almost perfect (just slightly too humid)! Accompaniment was: a bacon cheeseburger with Taylor ham, fries, pickle, and Coke!

We had another phenomenal meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! We tried a new place that looks over the river here in town, complete with beautiful willow trees. We had a new person join us, she‘s taught English in South Korea and Indonesia, which is fascinating for her to relate to us. Everyone enjoyed MM and want to read Horowitz‘s other adult books. This accompaniment was a Cuban panini with pesto sauce—exquisite! 😎👌🏻

Today was our monthly meeting of #ThePoconoBookClub! Our conversation went THREE hours instead of the allotted two 😱😁! It helps that we read this book when Avengers Endgame coincidentally just came out 😆. I love my book clubs, such a wonderful group of folks who get together to talk about BOOKS.

My accompaniment this chilly and rainy early afternoon was: a ham-bacon-sausage-cheddar omelette, toast, oj, and tea. And I tried corn nuggets. 🤤

MaleficentBookDragon ♥ corn nuggets? Where do you meet in the Poconos? 10mo
MrBook @MaleficentBookDragon Yeah, they look like #TATERTOTS(!!!), but have corn in them and taste exactly like cornbread 🤤. We meet at various places in Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg. 10mo
