Originally a Facebook group, this book club was started by Wendy Gray and Sheri Salatin, the farm chicks of Polyface. Being avid readers often interrupted by motherhood, farming and everyday life, we use this group to share and discuss books with other interrupted readers. In the beginning, our goal was to read and discuss one book per month, however it has morphed to one book every other month. We would love your suggestions for books too. Happy reading, and let lively discussions abound!
If you are just joining us, feel free to visit and discuss any of our previous books or current book on our discussion pages. Ideally we would like to keep these discussions going all the time! We will be posting links to the post featuring these books here on the blog. The links to the Author’s name takes you the information for that author. The link on the book title takes you the discussions for that book.
