I am a reader and book evangelist. For many years I have kept a reading journal with little descriptions of the books I read and dates I read them. Kind of a trail of book bread crumbs that chart my interests over a given course of time. This blog gives me a way to continue my journal and share my reading interests with others. My latest adventures in creating, dining, and traveling can be found at my website LindasOtherLife.com

My Abandonment by Peter Rock
This was our December book club book, recommended by Dave Edmonds because his "other book club" had had such a lively discussion about it. And so did we. Based on a true story of a young girl and her father who were found living in the wild in Oregon, the book only features Caroline's side of the story. We decided her narration is unreliable and discussed the many questions left unanswered by the book. Even those who came to book club convinced that the story was predictable, left with questions. All in all - a great discussion book.
