This summer my daughter Lexi and I had a book club. My wife would pick a book for us to read (which avoided fights about what to read), we’d both read it, then go to a coffeeshop to talk about it.
It worked out pretty good, though I’m surprised we only got through four books. That’s probably more my fault, since I was reading so much I’d have to work our book club book into the queue.
Here are the books we read:
- The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex
- Wonder by R.J. Palacio
- Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
- Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Lexi’s favorite: Wonder
My favorite: Counting by 7s
Lexi wants to keep doing the book club throughout the school year, so it must have been a success.
