I am really excited about this month’s LWD Book Club because our theme for the month is travel. We are going to have both a Francophile Week and an Anglophile Week, plus some general travel-related posts. Even though I won’t be visiting France or England this month (unless I win the lottery in which case plane tickets will likely be my first purchase), I can still take a little vacation within the pages of a book. I hope you’ll join me.

LWD JULY BOOK CLUB SELECTIONS
London: The Novel by Edward Rutherford
I’ve had this one on my bookshelf for several years now. I believe I bought it at a library book sale, or perhaps a used book store. At 800+ pages, this is one I’ve been putting off…simply because of the length. But summer is the perfect time to really dig into something lengthy.

The most romantic city in the world sets the stage for Barbara Taylor Bradford’s dazzling new novel, a spellbinding story of four remarkable women–each at a turning point in her life, each about to be changed forever by.…
Three Weeks in Paris
Hawaii by James A. Michener
My grandparents loved Hawaii and spent a lot of time there. They even owned a bit of property on one of the islands. My grandmother learned the hula and did quite a bit of dancing over there and I recall all her beautiful costumes hanging in their spare bedroom when I was a child. My grandfather was a Michener fan and for that reason I have picked up several of his books over the years. I’ve never read “Hawaii” but I’m looking forward to it.
