Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

May 6, 2013

Remember that time I had a complete stranger come sleep on my couch?

And I recommended a book and he stayed until he finished it?

Well I mean, first there was the agonizing decision–if I had to choose just one book to recommend, what book would it be??

And then there was that ridiculous brilliant idea for a book club which is still totally going to happen of course.

And then we discussed how I arrived at my choice, The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy (I mean, I could make you go link to it, but I haven’t even gotten to the real reveal of this post and that wasn’t it, although I bet you might have an idea where this is going).

Anyway, remember?? Remember???

I’m dictating this to Siri on my phone and she’s telling me she doesn’t “do” links. So if there are links to the old posts, I am the master of phone blogging. And if not, well, just go search On the Read.

So it turns out, I am not the master of phone bogging. But also, it turned out it was the middle of the night on Saturday and not Sunday, so there was still time to fix this properly! How cool would it be if I’d been the master of phone blogging though?

Anyway, as you’ve probably guessed, we are SUPER excited to be welcoming back (to our dinner table only this time, hence the all caps super) Carlin Gettliffe.

I can’t wait to hear about all of the awesome things Carlin has been doing since we last saw each other. The little bit I know from the emails we’ve exchanged makes me very excited for tomorrow evening. I will share soon, since it’s sure to be interesting.

In the meantime, for old time’s sake, if you had to recommend just one book to someone, what book would you recommend? Tell me in the comments.

  1. I’m sure you already know my answer: Pivot Point by Kasie West. I cannot pimp this book enough, and every person I have handed a copy to (and Lord knows that’s a lot of people – did I tell you I got yet ANOTHER copy, Michelle?) has loved it. Anytime someone needs a book rec, this is my go to book.

    Now if my father (a 60 year old man’s man who goes hunting, golfing, and fishing for fun) asked me for a book rec, I probably wouldn’t send him off with a book about a teenage girl trying to decide which reality to live. Obviously this book won’t work for everyone.

    But I can say I’ve made no less than 16 people read this book and every single one of them loved it.

  2. One book? Just ONE?? Gah. I’m sorry, that’s an impossible task.

    The Essential Calvin and Hobbes. Does that count as a book? If it doesn’t then that’s a world I don’t want to live in.

    It’s gotta be In A Fix by Linda Grimes. It’s now my go-to gift for every occasion. Quick Fix needs to get here soon. Prezzie season is upon us again and I need a new go-to gift. I loved On The Read. Can’t wait for the update.
    P.S. PengBlue would like to nominate Getting Dumped by Tawna Fenske. And everything else Tawna has written. 😉
