Books and Movie Ordered for the Summer Book Club

I’ve sent out invitations to join a summer book club. Today the group has been filled, 8 people plus me.  To encourage anyone who is trying something similar, I actually invited 29 people, 8 responded with a positive answer.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee -- the version we'll be reading.

I decided to provide the books so we would all be “on the same page” when making citations during our discussions.

I ordered the books from Amazon and, while I was at it, ordered the DVD of To Kill a Mockingbird which will culminate our discussions. When I was checking my orders I realized I had accidentally ordered 2 videos which I then proceeded to cancel.  Unfortunately both videos canceled simultaneously and I needed one.

After entering my phone number, Amazon immediately called me.  The representative, Miguel, told me he couldn’t add the DVD back to my original order but when I placed a new order he removed the shipping charge. Good customer service.

Many books are available free on the internet.

One interesting feature to the book order is that Amazon would provide me immediately with an ebook version of the first 2 chapters so I could begin reading right away. Which I did.

You can actually read the entire book here.

Do you look for free shipping as a perk of ordering?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
