Shelter Me by Juliette Fay
 
Shelter Me - I LOVED this book

I would highly recommend this book to all book clubs. I absolutely loved this book! I thought the author has a great sense of humor and I actually cried a few times while reading it.

Without a Map: A Memoir by Meredith Hall
 
Insightful, Confusing, Dark
Somewhat confusing at times

I enjoyed this book, but, found myself wondering what she was talking about sometimes. She seems to have left some parts out of the book. Very sad during those times and really felt for her.

Sullivan's Island

I enjoyed the book! Not sure I would suggest it for a book club meeting - more of a sitting by the pool book. The author has a sense of humor

Too Fat to Fish

The book was better than I thought it was going to be. But, I wouldn't recommend running out to buy it. I enjoyed the beginning of the book better than the end of the book.

Life of PI

I had a tough time with the first 100 pages and thought about giving it up. I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed the second part of the book.

Three Cups of Tea

I would highly recommend this book to all book clubs. I admire what Greg Mortenson does by fighting the war with books and not bombs. I wish more people thought like him.

The Children's Blizzard

True story of a completely unexpected cold front which wreaked havoc for much of Minnesota, Nebraska and the Dakota territories in the late 19th century. Combines historical and scientific facts with gut wrenching stories of survival and sadness. Well written.
