The last book we read in the book club was THE EYE OF THE NEEDLE by Ken Follett. It had a very mixed reaction there on who liked and who did not like this book. We are trying to bring in more books that men will enjoy and we will continue to do that. There was much death in this one but because of it being about war and spies you had to expect that. Of course many did not like it, but a few liked it very much and got a lot out of it.

The next book up is an autobiography about Julie Andrews’ early years in show business. It’s titled: HOME, A MEMOIR OF MY EARLY YEARS. We are all looking forward to that one and will bring it up at the next book club meeting on September 10th.

I am looking very forward to reading the next Sue Grafton book: V IS FOR VENGEANCE and that one is coming out on November 14th.


From Ken Follett’s web site: “It is 1944 and weeks before D-Day. The Allies are disguising their invasion plans with a phony armada of ships and planes. Their plan would be scuppered if an enemy agent found out, and then, Hitler's prize agent, “The Needle”, does just that. Hunted by MI5, he leads a murderous trail across Britain to a waiting U-Boat. But he hasn't planned for a storm-battered island, and the remarkable young woman who lives there.”
