Hi ladies and gents!
You might notice that there is no book review today. Some of you might be aware that on the last Thursday of the month we do book club and some might be wondering, 'hey! what the heck happened to book club?' Book club is being postponed today. I just couldn't quite get my August act together enough to finish the 500 page book. On Sunday I realized I could either read like a fiend and finish the book in time or I give us all a couple more weeks and actually allow myself to enjoy the book. If you haven't started the book is absolutely gorgeous... some of the best prose I have read for a long time. The plot moves a bit slow so I am having a bit of trouble immersing myself 100%, but I do know that I want to savor the experience instead of hurrying through it. So that means that book club will now be THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 10. If you have not finished the book yet, you have a bit of extra time. If you haven't started the book yet, start it! It really is such a beautiful book, one I am convinced I'd be remiss if I didn't read this year.
This will affect our last two book club selections of the year as everything will be pushed back two weeks. Here is our new schedule for the rest of the year. I hope that eases the pressure just a little bit for some of you.
BON'S BOOK CLUB SCHEDULE
September 10... All the Light We Cannot See Anthony Doerr
October 8 ... Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin
November 12... And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

I am preparing a post for later this evening on everything that blogging has taught me. I am approaching four years that I have been blogging consistently and it has been so good to me. I am so grateful for this space and this blog and the people who come here to read it. Thank you for that and tune in later for the full post.
Before I sign off for the afternoon (I'm meeting my sister for a little bit of Target Time. Part time is my wildest dreams come true.) I have one more thing to share with you. One of the coolest things about blogging is that it provides an outlet to help people who need a big audience. My childhood best friend, Maika, has been suffering from an auto immune disease for years. In the past year it has continually worsened where she cannot work or go to school. She is one the sweetest, dearest people in the world and always happy even with the problems that plague her. If you have a few extra dollars, any donations to her account to help her pay for her medical expenses would be so appreciated. It is a great way to give and help someone out and you have my guarantee that it will be going to someone who is very kind, appreciative, and will use the money to pay for hospital bills.
Go here to read more about Maika's situation and to help her pay for medical expenses. May you be blessed for your generosity and kindness.
