"I love reading historical fiction and learning something new. It seems like even when reading from a period with which I am familiar, I still learn new things. I think that learning something new helps the story stand out for me."
"I like my Nook and I also like physical books. I didn't think I'd enjoy my Nook as much as I do. If I know that I can get a book signed by an author, then I would much rather have the physical book. There are also some…"
"There are several things that will make me pick up a book. Probably first and foremost is a recommendation from a trusted friend. If I'm browsing in a store, then the cover will be a big draw, although I will read the description…"
"I have my grandma's china dishes. It's a pattern called Richelieu and made in Germany. I don't remember seeing my grandma ever use them, but I use them quite frequently when I have tea parties. There's nothing…"
"I love reading biblical fiction. I think that biblical fiction gives a familiar story new life. It makes me look at characters and situations with a new perspective. I also love getting more of a feel for what the culture was…"
"I have often been guilty of making immediate judgments about people only to find out I was wrong. In many cases, the ones I was quick to judge have become very good friends. The irony is that there is often a smidge of that first…"
"A lot of times when I have a friend who is going through a difficult time, I have a tea party to offer moral support! It's amazing what a couple of hours sitting with friends at a table with fine china, fancy tea party foods and…"

"I think what I appreciate about my pastor is that he's very open about mistakes he makes. He doesn't try to portray himself as a perfect person. I also love that he is very passionate about marriage and desires to see broken…"
"I enjoy reading mysteries. It's always fun to see if I can guess who the culprit is. I love the twists and turns and surprises along the way. I actually think it's fun when the culprit is someone that I didn't…"

2012 is going to be a great BOOK FUN YEAR!! We are going to have more book giveaways, you’ll get to know more authors. Bethany house and Revell Publishers are featured authors this year and the group called CAN (Christian Authors Network) will have some featured authors as well.
Check out the Book Club Pages. We have review sites, Book stores have put up pages, some of them are in the process of starting a book club, it just might be in your area. This is not a site you need to be on every day, but just check out parts of it when you can.
I LOVE Book club. I’m passionate about getting the word out about Christian authors and their books to book clubs. I think this could be a great for them to meet for each to learn from the other; authors from book clubs and book clubs from authors, I’ve seen that so far. It’s been fun to watch. We’ll see where the Lord leads us in 2012. We have many exciting opportunities lined up just for you. Book Clubs are about relationships with each other and with authors. It’s a win win!
I also wanted you to know that The Book Club Network has a FACEBOOK page. You can hear about others giveaways and book events there too. If you are an author you can POST your book events on the FRONT PAGE of this network for all to see. Announce book signings, speaking engagements or anything else book related!
