Iíd like to thank both Charlie & issybird for facilitating NLBC on our behalf! Itís been great fun, and I appreciate all your hard work to make that happen.

A big thanks as well, to everyone who participated! Hearing your thoughts and reactions has been fun, and really enriched my enjoyment of the books.

I think we had a good run too, and should celebrate that! Iím ready to say goodbye to the formal monthly commitment of the club, because Iím keen to tackle my own tbr list for a while. But, that said, Iíd definitely be interested an occasional group read.

Thatís interesting! I wonder if Beauvoir is stand-in for Louise Penny in some way? We see most of Gamacheís idealized qualities through his eyes. And it may just be a coincidence, but it would nicely fit with Ďbeauí Ďvoirí.
