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!

Spoiler Alert Tuesday/Winner

Winner!! picked number 1 for our winner this week!
Spoiler Alerts Below!!
So do you think that there are still elements of racism in employer/employee relations are concerned where black people work for white people? What about the other way around?
Do you think that the recent election of the first black president had anything to do with atonement? This question is one that I (MiMi, blame me) have been pondering because I've heard it discussed on TV and in the news. Leaving your political stance (if that's possible?) to the side, can you say whether you think it was based on atonement or qualifications alone?

Sunday is the first day to start our new book, so next week's Spoiler Alert will be wrapping up discussion on The Help.


  1. Yay me!! Go Amanda, Go cant see my dance but you can picture it right?

  2. I just finished "The Help". I simply loved it. And your last question is so deep my head is going to explode.

    I think the author was able to weave in all sorts of textures of isn't just black and white right down the middle. And this comment box is going all weird...

    Trying to decide if I can fit the next book in...what to do?

    Giveaways...I have not been paying close enough attention...hmmm...or can't follow directions.

  3. Boy what questions you ask!! I personally don't think Obama was elected for atonement or qualifications. I still can't figure out why he was elected. But I am sure tired of anyone that disagrees with him being called racist. I don't see racism in employer/employee relations. However I think that there is a tendacy to be reverse racism now. The Help was a great book. I loved it and after reading the one I check out of the library I bought a copy for my personal library. It was a great book.
