Who Reads Amanda Cabot's Books? The Kersey Bookbuddies Do

This month I'm delighted to feature the Kersey Bookbuddies from northern Colorado.  As you can see, the members dressed for the holidays as they read Christmas Roses.  Let's learn a bit more bout them.

When was your bookclub formed?
     Around 1998.
I'm impressed that you've been meeting for fifteen years.  That says a lot about the group ... and the books you've been reading.

Where do you meet and how frequently?
     We meet in the homes of members once a month.
That sounds like it's a lot of fun -- more personal than meeting in a bookstore or other commercial venue.

How many members do you have?
     Twelve at present.
And almost all of them were present for the photo.  How nice to see a variety of ages represented!

Are you looking for new members?
     If someone cares to join us, they are welcome.

Do you read fiction, non-fiction or a mixture?
     A mixture.
No wonder your club has lasted so long.  Your choice of books ensures that no one becomes bored.

How do you choose the books for your discussions?
     Members recommend ones they think would be interesting or relevant.
That sounds like a much better approach than just picking books off the bestseller list.

What was the first Amanda Cabot book that you read?
     Christmas Roses

How did you choose that?
     It was a suggestion of members who'd read it. 
Since I know that one of your members is, like me, part of Front Range Christian Fiction Writers, I can guess which one was responsible for the recommendation.  Thanks, Inez!

Is there any other information about your club that you'd like to share with other readers?
     We are an eating group that discusses books. We try to have foods that have been mentioned or relate to the book we are discussing. We truly like one another and have a great time sharing, laughing, fellowshipping and having lively discussions on the book of choice.
What a terrific idea!  I wonder if you had Swedish pound cake when you discussed Christmas Roses.

The more I learn, the more I know I'd enjoy being one of the Kersey Bookbuddies.  Thanks so much for sharing your story with us.
