    The latest votes are in and we have some new books to read together. Yahoo!

    The book for February is The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay. Feel free to read our book club books in any order that you choose and when you've finished reading, come back here and tell us what you think. Please label spoilers or even type them in white like I just did right here(highlight that blank space) so that a person has to highlight it to read it.

    I was really excited that the library had this book already. But when I went to download it to my Kindle, it wouldn't.

    Apparently it's an eBUP format, which I found out works on computers, tablets, and phones, but not Kindles. I'm disappointed. I surely don't want to read a whole book on my iPhone and I don't want to read in bed with my laptop!

    I guess when you see ebook listed it doesn't always for Kindle version. I never heard of that format before today.

    You can actually convert an ePub book to Mobi format that works on a kindle. There’s a free program that I’ve used in the past for that called Calibre. Then once you convert it, you can email it to your kindle. Each kindle has it’s own unique email address that is listed on Amazon somewhere in the kindle section of your account. I just googled it because I couldn’t remember where I found it. It’s an option anyway. Lol. It is a few hoops to jump through though.

    I didn't know that. I already returned the book. Hopefully my other library will come through for me soon.

    I read this one in October and said << 3 stars A bit predictable but a nice story especially for lovers of bookstores/shops. Get a cuppa tea or coffee and settle in with this one. (It was definitely a feel good book that I needed by that time in 2020. )>>

    That's the trouble with reading books about books! My TBR list can't handle it!

    Oh - this book was wonderful - at first I thought it seemed kinda sappy and maybe it is, but sometimes a good sappy book is needed to lift the spirits. I like how the author revealed the characters as you would peel an onion, one layer at a time. When the book was over I felt like I had lost some good friends - I’ll definitely reread this someday!

    i used to use the same process for DS and DD's books, using calibre to convert & sending them to Kindle, then i got lazy b/cos DS was reading so much during the online school time last year that it was easier to just have him use my Kobo that uses epub by default... and i don't think i've read an ebook since because it now lives on his bedside table not mine [sigh].

    i'm next on the list for this (paper) book. Hopefully it doesn't take me 2 months to read like the last one

    I read this a couple of months ago and forgot to post here. Loved the book list!
    A delightful, feel good read, even if a little predictable.
