Book Club Nuts and Bolts

We will be reading one book a month. We will have weekly group discussions if you are interested with a final discussion at the end of the month. The new book choice for the following month will be posted at least two weeks before the beginning of the new month. You can pick and choose if you want to participate. We will have at least one giveaway each month for our readers! If you have any book suggestions, please email either Jessica or MiMi. We are in new territory, so we might have to work out some kinks as we go along. We hope you make new friends and have fun!

Extra Extra!!

Hey Girlfriends!
We have two announcements today!
First we drew the number for our Necklace Giveaway!

We went to Okay, so really, we had Jessica's super cutie patootie son pick a number between 1 and 25.
And the winner is.....drumroll please....
Number 10!
Now for everyone else, don't be disappointed that you didn't win the necklace. We are going to have fabulous monthly giveaways, so you still can win! Maybe August will be your month?
And now some great news for everybody, the announcement you've all been waiting for...haven't you?
The Read With Girlfriends choice for August is:
Here's a tidbit about the book copied from Amazon.
From Publishers Weekly, Shopaholic powerhouse Kinsella delights again with her latest, a winning if unoriginal tale of amnesia striking an ambitious shrew and changing her life for the better. After taking a nasty bump on the head, Lexi Smart awakens in a hospital convinced that it's 2004 and that she's just missed her father's funeral. It's actually three years later, and she no longer has crooked teeth, frizzy hair and a loser boyfriend. Initially wowed by what she's become—a gorgeous, cut-throat businesswoman—Lexi soon finds herself attempting to figure out how it happened. As her personality change and lost memory threaten her job, Lexi tries to dredge up some chemistry with her handsome albeit priggish husband, Eric, though the effort is unnecessary with Eric's colleague Jon, who tells Lexi that she was about to leave Eric for him. Amnesia tales may be old hat, but Kinsella keeps things fresh and frothy with workplace politicking, romantic intrigue and a vibrant (though sometimes caricatured) cast. Though the happy ending won't come as a surprise, readers will be rooting for Lexi all along. (Mar.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
