More Elephants And A Book Recommendation

I have written several posts sharing that I am the chair of my book club............. now approaching its 20th anniversary. I wrote about how my book reviews were fake because my reading time was devoted to spanking books and not the books the book club was reading.

Good news! I am spending less time online and am back to reading real life books. Finally! The book club never even knew I was gone figuratively!

One reader wrote to me about her love of elephants and her liking of the photos I posted. She wrote to me sharing a book recommendation that centers on elephants and I simply devoured the book. Real life and all. It is Jodi Picoult's The Leaving Time. The book is told from different points of view and there is a lot of factual information about elephants. I loved the book and I am passing on her recommendation to you.

Thank you, L. and Jack



  1. Happy you are back in your book club Mere since that is something you enjoy. Sorry Hayley felt she had to have her posts pulled but happy she's still visiting. You and your elephants...maybe you were an elephant in a previous life. ;)

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  2. Mere,, The first photo reminds me of you and Jack,so much in love.


  3. I love that first picture, too. Sounds like a good book, Meredith. You will have to keep us up on your book club choices this year.


  4. Love the pics, especially the first one. I am fascinated by elephants and Jodi Picoult is one of my favourite authors so this has to be a winner. I have read most of her books but not this one so far, thanks for the heads up.


  5. Love the pictures! I also love reading books and you are reminding me that my online time is definitely taking over. Went to the library today. Maybe I'll actually read what I took out. Happy weekend!

  6. Hi Meredith, lovely pictures! Great that you have found more time for the book club again. I like Jodi Picoult, so I am pretty sure this book of hers will be just right for me. :)



  7. I think I will try to pull myself away from the 'other' books and actually check this one out. Thanks for the recommendation.
