Book Clubs

We have been meeting with our book clubs for the past few weeks, and they have really been awesome!  What is your favorite thing about your book club? I love adult book clubs because I think it is fun to discuss good books with other people. Please tell us the name of the book you are reading with your book club, what you think about your book so far, what are the main character's major problems, and where you think you are on the story mountain. Write about 4 to 5 complete sentences with the correct punctuation and capitalization.
