to the new Book Corner. After the last meeting
there were lots of ideas on book sharing. We also
decided to start a Book Club as an alternate MOMS Night
Out. The first book will be Angry Housewives
Eating Bon Bons. This book is about 5 women
over the course of 30 years that share a book club and
even more. The book is available at the library
and in book stores. We will meet on December 11th
at 7:00pm at a local coffee house. Come ready
to talk about the book. If you are just looking
for a good book to read to stimulate your brain, you
can also look in the Book Corner once a month for ideas.
Right now we recommend The Nanny Diaries
and The Red Tent. So sit back, grab something
warm to drink and enjoy a good book.
