December’s Birthdays

What a month of birthdays!

I’m sure you have favorite writers—but do you know when to
send them a birthday card?  When to invite them over for cake?

Celebrate books.


You already know me---I'm in your book club. I've been in your book club in Wisconsin, in New York, in Missouri, in Connecticut. Now I'm in your book club in Pennsylvania. I love books! (I also collect buttons!) I'm looking forward to having conversations about books with people just like you----who also love books and want to talk about them. Send me an email: booksandbooks (at) me about a book you are reading. (or buttons of interest)

    Christina Rosetti wrote a great poem about birthdays… maybe I should find it and re-read it on December 5th.
