Seabridge Reads One Book?

E-mail readers, click on "Seabridge Reads One Book?" title above for full story.

No, no, I'm not proposing a formal program for our little community*, but since we are also residents of Huntington Beach, I thought people might be interested in the "Huntington Beach Reads One Book" program. The first book chosen is Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson. I had heard about it, but my interest was piqued when one of our own residents coincidentally sent out an e-mail praising the book. So I thought it might be worthwhile to give the book some additional attention. And who knows, if enough Seabridge residents decide to read it, maybe it is indeed worth getting together locally to discuss it. So, if you plan on giving it a read, let us know in the comments below.

If anyone would like to go meet the author at Huntington Beach High School on February 21st, I am happy to drive others. Should you need a copy of the book, Barnes & Noble at Bella Terra is donating a portion of proceeds from books sold this week to the HB Reads program (voucher needed).

*while I didn't set out with the idea of promoting a local book program, I was reminded that one of our residents had the idea of starting a local book club last summer. If you are interested in doing such a thing, please use the comments below to share your interest.
