So what did I do on vacation?

The stack on the right are the books that I read (ok two of them were ones that I wrote a review of only) and the stack on the left is the stack of books that I wanted to read. Only 2 of them I brought with me....the rest I bought on the trip...and truefully I think I bought more then that. Lots of great bookshops in the Peak District.

You may recognize the book "The Behaviour of Moths" by Poppy Adams. I met her at a book talk given by Wenlock Books. She was very interesting and personable. I'm about half way through now....and it is great. I've chosen it for our family book group and one of my sisters sped through it and loved it. I'll have to write a review soon.

meeting some author in person actually helps to understand the book and the mind behind it better...

You have a family book club? Sounds interesting! Do you all meet in person or is it a virtual thing?

It is virtual. We have a yahoo group that my sister set up for us. It has been really interesting.

I agree with d Sinner, meeting authors helps a lot.
A family book club...sounds great but do you agree on what to read? My mum and bro love books...but they love crime/thriller and that's def. not my cup of tea...
