I'll look for it this week-end.

hmmm... I'll be travelling during the chat. Will there be an ongoing thread during the month with the members discussing?

I'm excited about this though - I'll be able to get more involved after our tour...

YAY!!! I don't have to keep the secret anymore! I can breathe again!

It WAS a fun chat! Thanks to all of you who came. I was a little surprised that we had so many people show up. That made me happy, though.

Thanks, Shari! You've done a great job organizing this!

Gotta go finish reading!

I look forward to reading this book. It will add a new dimension to my list. I usually only read fiction so this will be a nice change.

Thanks Shari and Zaz for organizing it.

I also love the blinkie. :penguins:

I'll try to get the book this weekend. After looking her up on Amazon, I may have to get a couple of her cookbooks also. I could always use another slow cooker cookbook.

I just love this lady! I saw her life story on the Food Network about a year ago; man she is a tough lady like Kaye said earlier!

I will purchase it this weekend and add to my reading list!

THANK you so much for starting a SG Book Club! This is going to be so wonderful!


PS - Shari - you are the ultimate blinkie maker of all time! This one rocks SG! Way to go! I am proudly showcasing it in my siggy!

I don't know for sure, but I'm betting that Valerie made the blinkie for us. I'm betting Shari will clarify that when she gets up. :)

Oh I am bummed! My library doesn't have the book! I guess that is a problem of living in a small town- small town, small library. I have sworn off buying new books this year. Our house is over-run with books (we all love to read) and I decided at the beginning of the year that I needed to use the libary more. Bummer! Perhaps I can join in the next chat. Have fun!

Bummer. My library doesn't have it and neither does the biggest book store in my area... I have one more place to check locally over the weekend, if they don't have it, I guess I'll have to order it online. And wait for it to arrive. Great.

Still haven't figured out the blinkie - it's nice tho!

Don't give up just yet. Check with your library by phone, they might be able to get it for you via inter library loan. If you have a community college anywhere near you, you can get a library card there usually around 5.00 charge and they definitely can get it for you if they don't have it.
