Washington Post Book Club

While I've been away, the Washington Post's Book Club has been proceeding along without me.(Imagine!) They're now on Week Six of Ten.

I think the Book Club is a great idea and they've executed it quite nicely. This week eleven-year-old Katie Bergmann, from Silver Spring, recommends Red Kayak, by Priscilla Cummings. There's a summary of the book, Katie explains why she found Red Kayak a compelling read, and then a list of similar books is provided.

Next week one of my childhood top tens is on the list: The Egypt Game, by Zilpha Keatley Snyder.
