Book Club Idea: Feeling Blue?
It’s January, which means the holidays are over and the cold winter is in full swing. If you live in the Northeast, temps have been in the single digits and we’ve already had quite a bit of snow. It seems like the spring may never come. So why not celebrate the winter blues with a book club? Sipping hot chocolate while reading these “blue” books will make the winter fly by.
- On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan – Almost the entire book takes place on a young couple’s wedding night in Britain in the early 1960’s.
- Born on a Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant by Daniel Tammet – A first-person account of a high-functioning, 27-year-old British autistic savant with Asperger’s syndrome.
- The Virgin Blue by Tracy Chevalier – A parallel story of an American woman moving to France and the story of her ancestors in Europe.
- Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier – I’ve never read this book, but it has received quite a bit of buzz. Inman, a Confederate soldier, walks back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains.
