Java With Jo

This has been one of those weeks that has me dragging this Friday morning.  So needless to say, tomorrow morning will have me lolling around my home in my bathrobe and cup of coffee and not even thinking of what to do next!  I participate in a lot of fun activities but it seems like they all come at the same time.

One of my activities this week was my monthly book club meeting on Wednesday night.  We had a great night together as we discussed The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent.  This was an amazing story that left us all feeling fortunate for the world that we live in today.  This novel also left me looking forward to Kent's next book, The Wolves of Andover.  I should be receiving a review copy of this novel any day!  After a great night of book discussion, fellowship, and wonderful dessert (hence our name Sweet Connections), we left each other anticipating our November pick, The Good Husband of Zebra Drive by Alexander McCall Smith.

The weather here in Northern Wisconsin is looking to get pretty chilly over the next few days, so I am ready to snuggle up in my recliner for a couple of days with a warm blanket, a glass of wine or cup of tea (depending on my mood at the time) and get some ME-time in with a good book.

Have a great weekend everyone!

It's cold here all of a sudden, and I don't like it!

I like the sound of Sweet Connections.....books and desserts!

It is pouring with rain here in the UK which is not good on November 5th....Guy Fawkes night when we have our fireworks.
We are having fireworks on Sat so maybe the rain will be gone by then.

enjoy ur reading time and weekend!

It's cold in the southern part of the state too. I keep telling myself it's a great place for a reader to live. Long winters make for a lot of quality reading time!Have a great weekend!

It has been unseasonably warm in Colorado. No snow in the Denver metro area and I think that is a record. The mountains have snow. I have been buried in edits and missing all my blogger buddies.
By the way, I'm running a contest.

Cold here too! I wish to have some coffee, so I will go make it now LOL!

I have been wanting to read Kathleen Kent's books.

I just joined a book club recently (we haven't even met yet) -- our first book is going to be The Birth House by Ami McKay. I really enjoyed The Heretic's Daughter!

I hope you had a lazy Saturday morning! Your book club discussion last week sounds like a lot of fun. I'm happy to hear you really enjoyed The Heretic's Daughter. I'm looking forward to your thought on The Wolves of Andover!

Have a great week & stay warm!
