Book Blogging Babes--I LOVE THE TITLE

One of the many blessings of blogging is that we meet, wonderful like-minded people, who make us laugh and smile and make us realize that we are not alone in this glorious world. Anyway, through blogging, I met Tiffany, which led to me meeting Michelle and then Liz and then Circe. They all know each other but I have been invited into their amazing circle of friends and daily, when I check my blog, I feel so blessed to see a piece of these amazing woman's lives.

Anyway, Book Blogging Babes was formed and I am now a member. On a complete tangent, I must say, if I were naming an on-line book club, Book Blogging Babes would have been it. "Babes" is one of my favorite names of girls as I think we are all babes in our own right. My freshman year, our floor dubbed itself, "Brigham's Babes" and when I served my mission on Temple Square, when asked to submit names for "Districts" many of my suggestions had the word babe in it. Which, unfortunately, offended many of the easily offended sisters but made others laugh. I can proudly say that my suggestion, "Woman with Witt" (my mission's presidents last name) won the vote for our district. (District meaning a group of about 12 sister missionaries).

Anyway, monthly we will be posting book reviews on a book. It is my turn to pick the book in June and it is The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio by Terry Ryan. So, you want to read along, please join us. Currently, we have all reviewed The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. Here is the LINK.

Hi Janice. Its fun to say that to another Janice. I have also met another book blog babe from Tiffany that ended being a Sis. Missionary that stayed with my parents on her mission. Isn't that a riot. Crazyland blogger. Her and Tiffany went to high school together. Unreal.. But now I get to meet you. Its all good.

I loved that movie from your book choice. I admit I am not much of a reader, but I might at some point give this club a try. It sure couldn't hurt.. Take care.
