First BBTO Sunday Book Club Pick: Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult

I had a lovely brunch this morning with two of my oldest friends from Ottawa, Lisa K (and her beautiful kids and husband) and Liisa V (aka LK and LV). 

AS, LV, JL (who also loves to read) and LK

Both LK and LV are great readers and LK is a member of a book club at her office. While we were discussing, LV who blogs at Fit for a kid suggested that I start a BBTO book club here.

Of course I loved the idea and I'm really excited to start sharing and hearing from readers here.  After we've all read the first book then we can meet in person, do a book swap and talk about future picks for the BBTO book club.  

Here's how it will work:
1. On Sundays I will post three questions to get the conversation started.
2. I will collect your comments and create a post to summarize what everyone thinks. I will post on Wednesdays.
3. After we finish the book we can meet up and discuss ideas for the next BBTO book club pick and everyone can bring a few books to swap with the group.

My first pick for the inaugural BBTO book club is SING YOU HOME by Jodi Picoult. I'll be posting a few BBTO book club questions on the first three chapters next Sunday.

I will alert everyone on Facebook and Twitter when I post the book club comments. My Facebook profile is Lesley Slack and Twitter is @LesleySlack.

Please join me and feel free to add your suggestions and comments too!


  1. I love the idea of a book club. I'd love to be a part of it! Since I'm 'between books' right now, I will check out "Sing You Home".

  2. I'm in Les - Just downloaded it. Of course, I won't be able to be at the get-together part...

  3. Great! You will be there "in spirit". Thanks for the great idea! Isn't the pic nice?
