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

What do you think of the book so far? I really enjoyed it; finished it in a couple days.
We will be doing more giveaways, so if you're here for that, please hold the thought! We actually have some stuff, however I'm too lazy busy to take a decent picture and
post it right now.
Spoilers Below!!
The author really starts to get to know his Rabbi on a personal level throughout the book. He no longer sees him as the unapproachable "Man of God" that he once did.
Do you have people in your life who you saw as unapproachable or saw them in a different light, only to get to know them and see that they are just as human as you?
Do you think that since the author started to see his Rabbi as a normal person that it helped him to get back in touch with his faith?


  1. Just saying hi and wanted you to know I'm missing you and the Girlfriends. I haven't had a chance to pick up the book so I am sitting out this month. I'll be back next month - can't wait!!

  2. Isn't time to announce next months pick??

  3. Finished the book in just a couple of days too. It was a good read and included some nice ways to think. I just kept thinking about ways I wanted to try and help people. I think I have known people who at one time I thought they were nothing like me or I would have nothing in common with them and once I got to know them we were similar & they turned out to be nothing like i had pictured in my head. But I think it is especially easy to put preachers and others like that on a higher step because it may appear they are closer to God then I could ever be.

    I think it helped him to get back in touch with his faith to see that it wasn't so black and white like he grew up thinking. That even the Rabbi could appreciate other views and not yell at everyone that his way was the only way.

  4. I am enjoying the book and I am almost finished with it. I love the way that the author is actually coming to love the old Rabbi, he once thought was beyond approach. I think it is helping him get in touch with his faith, seeing how truly human this great Rabbi is.

    I love the old Rabbi's sense of humor too. What an amazing guy.
