Inspired by Reading Book Club 2014/2015 List...

This is the reading list for 2014/2015 for the Inspired by Reading Book Club.  For 2013/2014's list, CLICK HERE.  To participate, all you have to do is read the book selected for that month and create something (artwork, jewelry, components… etc.) inspired by what you've read.  At the end of each month, there will be an opportunity to share your work in the Facebook Group and through a blog hop.  (I'll post the dates of the reveals here and on the Facebook Group.)  CLICK HERE to join the Facebook Group.

May 2014 – "An Object of Beauty" by Steve Martin
June 2014 – "The Drunken Botanist" by Amy Stewart
July 2014 – "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot
August 2014 – "Stiff" by Mary Roach
September 2014 – "Lavinia" by Ursula K. Le Guin

December 2014 – Happy Holidays!
January 2015 – "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer
February 2015 – "Geek Love" by Katherine Dunn
March 2015 – "Home" by Toni Morrison
April 2015 – "Girl Reading" by Katie Ward
May 2015 – "The Children's Book" by A.S. Byatt
June 2015 – "An Atlas of Impossible Longing" by Anuradha Roy

I did a check and all of the books are available and still in print.  Most of them are available in paperback and can be picked up fairly inexpensively used.  Please consider supporting your local independent bookstore.  And don't' forget, you can always see if your local library carries these titles.  If they're not available, many of them can special order them for you to borrow.

This is supposed to be fun and inspiring and I hope everyone who participates has a good time!  If you have any questions, you can always email me:

Ok Andrew, now Eric and I have to get busy looking at the list and the calendar to see what we can make work. How is late October in Pennsylvania? Without digging too deep I think Aug, Sept, or Oct are the most promising book-wise.

It's beautiful here! It is one of my favorite times of year. The leaves are all changing and fall is in the air. Plus, the town is very festive with scarecrows and pumpkins.
