Christmas Brunch

Mel, Mary, Liz, Gillian, Ellen, Norene, Sue

Every Christmas my book group meets in December for a holiday brunch in Leesburg. We don't discuss a book, we just drink mimosas and eat a lot of eggs and bacon and lots of other good things (it's a buffet). We have been going to the same place for the past five or six years, and we've even had the same waitress, who remembers us from year to year, takes our picture, and comments on our holiday attire. We are in our 13th year of reading books together and we actually manage to focus on the books most of the time. And in case you are interested, here are the books we've read in 2012:

The Dovekeepers, by Alice Hoffman
Moon Tiger, by Penelope Lively
Nightwoods, by Charles Frazier
Little Bee, by Chris Cleave
The Sense of An Ending, by Julian Barnes
Swamplandia, b y Karen Russell
Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn
