How do you join a reading group on GoodReads?

I do use good reads to sort my collection of books, but didn't know about a reading group. Sounds interesting.

Right now, I am reading Fatty Patty by y Kathleen Irene Paterka

I'll Watch the Moon by Ann Tatlock; it's a group read this month in one of the groups I am in on Goodreads. I don't do a lot of group reads, but this one worked out because I already had it on my Kindle and I hadn't read it yet.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

The Red Cotton Fields by Michael Strickland my prime selection for the month. So far the characters are sort of stiff but the story from the south to Australia may carry it.

Leona, thank you for asking. My mom just got out the hospital this morning. I haven't home much the past few days, since we are also moving her into a house in town, less than a 5 minute drive from me. I will try to post a blog update tomorrow. I will send up some prayers for your friend.

I am going to start One More Sunrise by Michael Landon Jr. and Tracie Peterson.

I will definitely add this book to my to-read list. I had a mammogram last June that was iffy so then I had a scan in July. Now they want me to have another test at the end of September. I already decided that if I do have cancer, no matter what stage, I will have a double mastectomy since I don't want to worry about it later on. A friend of mine only had single mastectomy and 2 years later, got cancer on the other breast and she ultimately died from it. I already had a full hysterectomy because of fibroids but decided then to just have it all taken out; less fear in the future.

Your example encourages me and I thank you, in case I do have cancer. emoticon

Let Me Get This Off My Chest: A Breast Cancer Survivor Over-Shares by Margaret Lesh.

I chose this book because I am living with stage IV breast cancer, and I've been through a bilateral mastectomy, radiation and chemo just as the author has. Great book so far; the author has a way of being candid but without being morbid and even has a sense of humor. I wish I had had this book when I had my first diagnosis 10 years ago. I recommend this book to anyone going through breast cancer, or if you have a friend or family member going through this and want to understand it better and how best to help them.

I am still on the same three. It usually doesn't take me so much time but I am being more active so that may have something to do with it. I think you would enjoy Glamorous Illusions. It is a Christian Historical Romance.

You are too funny, Shari. emoticon The team that I am a leader of, one of the sticky subjects was very misspelled when I took the team over so ultimately, I made it not sticky because it was bugging me. emoticon

I seldom read one book at the time. I have a somewhat short attention span emoticon so I read between 3-6 books at once.

1. Read on: Crime Fiction Reading Lists (non-fiction)
2. Murder She Wrote: A vote for murder by Final Bain
3. The glass devil (translated from Swedish)
4. Murder is a piece of cake by Elaine Viets (the author lives in my area of Florida and I have heard her speak twice; very nice lady)

I love reading and enjoy going from one book to the other. I have problems when there are a lot of characters with foreign names or I am also reading a challenging non-fiction book. And now that I have a Kindle, I can get so many more books! emoticon

I know there is another thread with this question, but it was started long before I took over the team, and it's always bugged me that the "W" in "what" wasn't capitalized, and the question mark was left off. Just had to fix it because it bugging me, LOL.


Right now I am reading Accidentally Amish by Olivia Newport.
