Just in case you do not know or have not knocked around the 24/8 Book Club site. We keep lists of books for you each and every month.  We update these lists a couple of times a month.  Our featured authors and guests provide their reads as well. Please take a moment to view the Take Out Book Lists, they are formatted so they are easy to print to take with you to the bookstore or library.

Happy summer reading.

Excellent! Thanks so much for this. If there’s anything I can do to make the feature more fun, please let me know.
BTW – Did you notice People described me as “chick-lit queen Strohmeyer”? I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. So happy I went out and up the blond highlights, spluged in some (more) pink lipstick and, naturally, a sturdy reliable tiara. Apologies to Jane Green, Sophie Kinsella, Meg Cabot, and many others who definitely deserve the title more.

I just finished A SUMMER AFFAIR and will be posting about it next week. There are quite a few others on here that I’m dying to read like:

THE CHARMING MAN – one of my favorite authors
THE BEACH HOUSE – another one of my favorite authors
SWEET LOVE – been hearing tons of good stuff about her

Thanks for the post!
