We Are Back At Book Club




A fall night, a beautifully set table and the welcoming chatter of friends all signify the start of another season of my wonderful book club. Summers are a busy time for everyone and while I see some of these ladies now and then, it will be so nice to start see everyone on a regular basis. We had so much to talk about; big things like weddings, trips to Paris, moving to a new house and everyday things too.



As usual, our dinner was fabulous and in fact when I arrived, our hostess was grilling perfectly cooked salmon. Served with salad, asparagus risotto and a pesto topping it was a light and delicious meal. We sat around the table talking and drinking wine, had dessert (apple crisp - yum) and still had not started on our book discussion. We tried a few times, but got sidetracked with other conversations as we are prone to do when we haven't seen one another for a while.



As the evening grew late, we did begin to discuss the wonderful book, Orphan Train. I had read it previously, over a year ago (review here) and read it a second time to refresh my memory. I enjoyed it just as much, if not more, with the second reading and I think that makes for a good recommendation. My other book club members really loved this book too. It was good to be back, good to hear everyone's thoughts and most importantly, good to sit around the table with friends.

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Looks like a great night, Vicki. I've heard great things about that book. Have a good weekend.

  2. It sounds like a fun night! Our club read "The Orphan Train" awhile back. Yes, it's a great book!

  3. What a wonderful time to spend with friends:) Dinner looks delicious! Have a blessed day dear Vicki, HUGS!

  4. Good friends, yummy food and a good book...the best.

  5. Not sure what I enjoy more . . .
    Hearing about your friends, discussions . . .
    Food photos . . .
    Book and review . . .
    I guess all of it . . .
    Orphan Train was a good read . . .
    What is next?

  6. Sounds like it was a wonderful evening with wonderful food!!! I wish I had the time for a book group right now....putting it on my "later in life" list! xo

  7. One of my coworkers is in a book club and it is purely social. They rarely get around to talking about the book (that they DO read). I think that's really what it's all about. Great post. Dinner looks wonderful!

  8. Loved Orphan Train too, but it's been awhile. Our book club is reading it in Spring. I don't usually re-read, you've inspired me! Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. I generally don't like to reread a book but the fact that this one help up well to the second visit is quite an endorsement!

  10. The Uttar Pradesh Scholarship is available to students from the Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, OBC, Minority, and General Categories who excelled academically but lack the money to continue their study. The Uttar Pradesh Scholarship programme offers a number of pre- and post-matriculation initiatives that are given to every student based on their caste and field of study. Scholarship UP In order to make it simple for students to understand which department of the Uttar Pradesh state is providing the plan, we have included a full analysis of the Uttar Pradesh schemes along with the names of their respective providers.
