Hi everyone,

I just wanted to give our readers "a heads up." Our current book selection does contain some foul language which some of us might find offensive. I think Della chose to call it colorful. Also, one of the characters in the book has undergone a sex change. We will be discussing THE GREAT FIRE by Shirley Hazzard on The Cousins' Book Club. If you choose not to read Murmur Lee, then feel free to get started on our next book, THE GREAT FIRE. Also, I just picked up the book (Shirley Hazzard's) at Borders. They're having a three paperbacks for the price of two sale.

Tootles, Carol

Sounds interesting. I think I accidentally deleted your invite in an attempt to sweep out my email inbox. Can you resend please?

Also, can you link Tecolote to Cousins? Is this where our "spicy" reads will go? If so, I bet it gets popular.

Yes, our "racy" books will be discussed on this blog. I just finished the book. Leave it to Della to pick the X-rated book.

I haven't started reading either one but am looking forward to reading both. There is nothing wrong with a little spice here and there.

Surfing the blogosphere and found your site.. I love to read but am not a cousin. Do I have to be to participate?
Check out my blog:

Anyone can participate in the book discussion. You do not have to be a cousin. Read on. By the way, has anyone else finished? I read the book a few weeks ago and my memory is beginning to fade. The emerging movie club may mean waning interest, I hope not.

Are you guys going to consolidate these into one book club again?

I will participate when we hit nonfiction. I have two (not boring) suggestions -- you guys may have already read them on your own time though.

Hey Carol, I finished also and absolutely LOVED it!!! I am ready to discuss it and I highly recommend this book. There is so much to talk about. Nobody else has written so I am not sure who else has read it, is it just you and me?
Ang, I am interested in your two book selections, please do share. I like to read in-between readings.

Hi Ang and Jen,

Rick has suggested that one blog site be devoted to reading recommendations and reviews; that way we can share our book reviews on one site and discuss our book club book on the other. How does that sound? Maybe we use the Tecolote site for our discussions and use the Cousins spot for reviews and recommends. Jen, I'm ready to discuss. Leroy said he's reading the book and I have not heard from Lisa. Have you?
