GREAT for newly formed book clubs! Nov 5, 2004
What a wonderful idea! Now you can gather a few friends together, sip a glass of wine, munch on fine food that matches your monthly theme and sit back to talk about your book selection. Mary and Rose even give you examples of the questions that could be asked and discussed. Everything you need to get yourself started for years of literary bliss, good companionship and great eating. These two sisters will get you started, and you can, with their help, sit back and do the rest with ease.
Their book is filled with quotations, yummy recipes,literary references and ideas. Novice book clubs can just follow Mary and Rose for a successful first year, and seasoned book clubs can pick and choose from these excellent suggestions.

great for book clubs or just book fans! Oct 26, 2004
I belong to several book groups and have purchased a copy of this book for each of them! It is fun, interesting, easy to read and the recipes are a fun addition. Loved the suggested readings, the question lists for books, and the colorful book quotes that are scattered throughout the recipes and text. Plus the nice use of color and little icons keeps the readers attention.
