Thank you for Visiting

This book club provided an opportunity to discuss books with authors from 2009 - 2013. I like to think we were a group of daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, well... women finding time to meet while juggling daily life.

I hope you enjoy exploring The Manic Mommies Book Club Archives. We read 46 books over the years, with audio or written author discussions for each book read documented on this blog.

Summer plans and book club

I know this might sound crazy since it is February, I’m planning our book selections for the summer and am wondering if we have enough people interested in reading two books.

Upcoming selections and dates:
March 4 – Testimony
April 22 – The Life Room
June 3 – The Local News
July 15 - ?
August 26 - ?

In talking to some of you offline…most of us read a few books a month so we may want to keep meeting over the summer. Personally, I would love to meet in July so don’t worry about my schedule, coordination etc…I tend to read more over the summer.

Please leave a comment to this post with your thoughts so we can make a decision and secure our book choice.

Thanks, Mari


  1. I will continue reading throughout the summer, so I am in!

  2. I typically read at least two books a month (more if time allows). For me, the question is getting my hands on the chosen book at the local library. If I know about the book in advance, can get the local library to acquire it and finally borrow it, I'd love to participate! Thanks for asking...

  3. Absolutely, I love reading outside in the summer while my child runs around like crazy : )

  4. I will definitely be reading during the summer. Count me in!

  5. I'm in too. I have always loved reading & this book club has given me a reason to schedule time for myself to read. I'd rather not lose that momentum over this summer!

  6. I would live to continue reading over the summer too. You've made some great choices thus far.

  7. Count me in ... I tend to read more during the summer anyway. Thanks!

  8. Summer is made for reading I think...

  9. I'm in! No school activities and pool time mean more time for reading.

  10. Yes, I definitely would love to continue through the summer months, count me in!

  11. Summer equals books for me! I love love laying on a blanket reading. Let's keep going.
