Summer Book Club

Summer is just around the corner, the kids will be out of school and we are going to get busy with our summer plan schedules. But for book lovers around the globe it is the perfect time to select the books they want to relax with during this time of year. There is nothing like a good book to read and sink your mind into during those quiet times at the beach or at the lake home.

Get together with other readers online. Many groups meet online to discuss their reading on forums, bulletin boards, chat rooms. You can find some of them here:

Meet the authors. I would like to invite you to hear from the authors why their book would make a good summer book selection for you or your group. Click on Comments for this entry and read the authors book’s description.

Order your books. You can order most of the books online and if you would like to order a book autographed by the author this will be your chance. You might want to read on our previous post about making your selection for your Book Club.

  1. My book, Simplicity – Richness of Life, was born out of the journal I kept for couple of years while my children were growing up. Being a stay at home mom becomes a challenge as we make daily decisions about the activities we involve ourself into. I was out of control for a while but soon started to focus on what was important for my family and learned to create a healthy balance.

    For those of you struggling to do it all and still maintain that family unity my book might be of help to you. You can read more about it on my website and order your copy to read over the summer break.

  3. …Publiqué mi primer libro de poemas, titulado “Escritos Para Vivir”, en homenaje póstumo a mi amigo y profesor de Literatura que tanto me animó en vida a escribir. Junto a estos poemas donde el tono coloquial del lenguaje
    crea una atmósfera intimista, recogí además una selección de mis primeros versos que conforman una lectura fácil, breve y cercana. En la página de Lulu.com podéis encontrarlo:

    Tuviste muy buena idea, amiga Clary, para promocionar los libros; aunque es una lástima que el idioma inglés represente un obstáculo para mí a la hora de entender las opciones que ofrecen estas interesantes webs.
    ¡Gracias por la información, Clary!
    SALUDOS: LeeTamargo.-

  4. Bueno Luis, este es un blog bilingue asi que estoy segura de que nuestros lectores encontraran tu promocion aqui.

  6. “Save Them All” by Linda Bergman-Althouse

    Since this post is where the action is, I’d like to introduce my novel to our Book’s Den readers. Our lives are the stories we share through words or images and my most recent story actually began years ago when working with wildlife became a passion for me. I found that every animal admitted to the shelter had an experience worth documenting and every public rescuer’s and rehabilitator’s life behind the scenes were stories worth telling. An alluring and romantic read, Save Them All, is about pushing yourself to live strong despite tragic loss, coming to know who you really are and recognizing what is most important in your life. If you embrace our country’s natural resources, love animals, foster enduring friendships, and appreciate a touch of mystery with a moderate, side-portion of romance, you’ll enjoy this character driven read inspired by true events. Check out my website’s bookshelf for a multitude of ways to acquire my book.

    Thank you for considering Save Them All for your next read.
