Swagbucks Book Club – Inspiration Invasion

Posted by on Fri, May 16th, 2014 at 10:00 am

Welcome Swagbucks Book Club Members! (If you are new and wondering how to join – you already have!  There is nothing more to do than show up and participate)

Don’t forget the reading selection for May is Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler.  Join us on Friday May 30th to discuss this title.

Eighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a favor to ask her hairdresser Dorrie Curtis. It’s a big one. Isabelle wants Dorrie, a black single mom in her thirties, to drop everything to drive her from her home in Arlington, Texas, to a funeral in Cincinnati. With no clear explanation why. Tomorrow.

Dorrie, fleeing problems of her own and curious whether she can unlock the secrets of Isabelle’s guarded past, scarcely hesitates before agreeing, not knowing it will be a journey that changes both their lives.  Isabelle confesses that, as a willful teen in 1930s Kentucky, she fell deeply in love with Robert Prewitt, a would-be doctor and the black son of her family’s housekeeper–in a town where blacks weren’t allowed after dark. The tale of their forbidden relationship and its tragic consequences makes it clear Dorrie and Isabelle are headed for a gathering of the utmost importance and that the history of Isabelle’s first and greatest love just might help Dorrie find her own way.

Graduation season is upon us!  Now that Mother’s Day has passed the stores will put away their pink and start cardboard mortarboards and diplomas. Full disclosure: Swagbucks is not immune – check out our Graduation section in Shop. One of the most popular graduation gifts is Oh, The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss. Amazon describes the book as: Dr. Seuss addresses life’s ups and downs with his trademark humorous verse and illustrations, while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within.  Not a bad message at any age!

Today’s Discussion: What books have you given or received that you found especially inspiring?

Leave your comments below and help others discover hidden gems.  Plus on Monday I will randomly choose 3 contributors and award them with 25 SBs each!
