New Title Announcement

Light Between Oceans is Our March Read

 


 

Yes, it's that time again. CapRadio Reads met last night to discuss our February title and for the big reveal for our choice for March.  Oprah, who does know a thing or two about books, said about Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman, "There's something irresistible about a morally complex story that makes you root for all it's flawed characters, even when they are at odds with one another".  She's right. This book will engage you right away, and you will probably finish it way before our meeting, on March 12th at 6:30pm in the Community Room of Capital Public Radio. I don't want to give anything away about this book, but it is a marvelous story.
  Our event last night was a sell out, so before you do anything else, be sure you are an official member of CapRadio Reads by clicking on this link Join The Club.This way, next month you will receive a personal invitation to come to our meeting and first notice of all our other very special events. Just do this once, and you're in!  The next thing you  should do, if you would like to join us for our Face to Face book discussion in March is sign up specifically for that event.  Here is the link to do that Sign Up Here .  Hope to see you in March and back here on the blog next week.

  3. I am totally loving this book so far! Best book I've read in a long time. Very skillful writing, too. It will be hard to read it slowly. I've always thought it would be interesting to live in a lighthouse, and now I can vicariously live through the characters!

  4. Looking forward to the book! Bummer that it comes out in paperback a month after our face to face meeting!

  5. About the paperback edition: Sometimes books that are very popular in hardback make changes in their paperback publication dates. Originally, Gone Girl was to be this month's choice, but the paperback version has been delayed indefinitely. I hope you all find this book worthy of a hardback purchase!

  6. Totally worth the hardback purchase! It's only a few dollars difference on Amazon anyway.
    Looking forward to Gone Girl now, too, if you consider it again in the future :-)

  7. I loved and hated this book! The writing was a dream. The descriptions, the research that went into the writing, and mostly the prose and meter of the sentences. It made me feel good even when I wanted to scream--don't give the baby back! What are you doing?
