It's the summer reading season and many of the SpouseBUZZ team have been given books to read and possibly review on SpouseBUZZ. Some of the authors will be featured in upcoming segments on SBTR. We try to limit the books to ones that are written by members of the military community, or books that are pertinent to military culture. Over the next few weeks, you'll see a lot of reviews along these lines as the SpouseBUZZ team is making their way through all kinds of books including cookbooks, children's books, fiction and non-fiction. Our goal is to promote and support authors who are military, or who write about the military.
Our old-style book club sort of fell by the wayside because we began to get so many requests to read and review books, so we're working on getting a more organized book club cranking again. One that we can all participate in as a community and discuss. We'll keep you posted on developments.
Meanwhile, if you have a book that you recommend (military-related or not), let us know about it. As for me, I finished the last book in the Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency and the Isabel Dalhousie series a few weeks ago. This author is my guilty pleasure. His work is incredible and, although I enjoy the military-related books, his books give my brain a great reprieve from the books that I normally read. Another of my favorite non-military authors is Jan Karon. I devoured The Mitford Series and am excited that she has started a new series, The Father Tim Novels. Great stuff.
