Farewell Blog
Posted by: admin

book-club-buddy2

This will be my last blog on Book Group Buzz. After 126 blogs and a year and a half discussing book clubs, I want to thank everyone who responded or questioned or commented on my various reading group dilemmas and book-searches. I loved sharing my discoveries with you. My search for great new books will continue, and I’ll still be writing reviews for Shelf-Awareness.com, so I’ll try to make sure my major finds appear there.

As a last contribution, I had to share this exciting new postcard we’ll be giving out at this month’s Pride festivities for our Seattle Gay and Lesbian Book Club. Photo and design by Monderen Photography — in other words, my dear friend, Jacob. That’s my little feller, Buddy, posing for us.

I wish all of you in book groups many more stimulating discussions and provocative titles to explore.

    You will be sorely missed, Nick. You lent a distinctive voice, your posts never failed to be interesting, and you challenged us to look beyond standard book group fare.

    You will be sorely missed, Nick! I also meant to comment that I had a similar predicament with “Fun Home” when my group discussed it. We had a fine discussion, but I think I loved that book so much that I was disappointed not to find everyone else swooning over it as I did. Not a good way to approach a discussion, for sure! Thanks again for sharing your stories, and introducing so many wonderful authors in translation!
