I have one other thing to say about The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
During our book club discussion, there was one point that split our group. We were discussing Juliet (the main character)’s travel to Guernsey to meet people she’d only met through letters.
One member thought that it was either unrealistic or a sign of very bad judgment on part.
Two of us had no problems with it, since we’d both formed friendships based on on-line communication, and traveled to meet people on that basis alone. (The remaining 3 either didn’t have strong opinions or didn’t want to get in our way 🙂 ).
I found it very interesting to see that small link between the letter writing of days past and our world of meeting people through e-mail lists, Twitter, Blogs and more.
I’m still new to the Book Blogging community, but I’m starting to make connections. I hope to get to know many others in the community– perhaps well enough to find a roommate for BEA next year that I’ve never met in person.
Thanks to all those that have welcomed me.
