Reminder: Blog Book Discussion

Happy Friday, my friends!

Today I have just a short post for you. Last night I was busy getting everything done in time to make it to a girlfriend's for the season premiere of Grey's (are any of you fans as well?) and didn't have the usual time I put into my posts.

That being said, all I have for you today is a reminder:

I wanted to remind you all of the blog book discussion I introduced during August's installment of African Aspirations (see here).  The book we will be discussing is Ishmael Beah's A Long Way Gone.

I announced the discussion nearly two months ago to ensure I would have plenty of time to read the book, and....guess what?  I just started!  So have no fear--if you are just reading about this discussion and want to join in, you still have time!  The book is a quick read and really sucks you in!  The discussion questions and my responses will be posted Monday, October 3.  Additionally, I will have a link-up for you to add your posts and answers, as well as other thoughts/reflections you may have.  I will post the discussion questions on my Facebook page (here) by next Friday!

Have a great weekend---much of mine will be spent READING!


  1. My daughter read this in Junior year of High School and found it compelling,well written and heartbreaking.

  2. The author is speaking at my school this year! I've never read the book, but it sounds interesting. Have a great weekend!

  3. I have this book set aside to read! Thanks for reminding me :)


Your comments brighten my day!
