Let's Get Serious

9 months ago?  Really?  It's been that long since I posted anything!  Well, it's time to get serious about Granny Girls again!  We have had so many adventures in the past 9 months and I want to put them all on here but I need to get real and just start from today.

We have the next 2 months planned.  On June 14th we will have a book swap.  Do you have books you've read and can recommend to us?  Do you have books you know you will never get around to reading?  Maybe you have an e-reader now and can let go of some of your books.  If you are like me, the e-reader will never replace physical books no matter how much I love it but maybe you are looking for a great summer read.  If this is you, join us at 7:00 pm at Little People's Academy (543 N. Ridge Ave) and bring any books you are willing to let go.  You will be able to "shop" and pick up anything you want and find a hidden gem for yourself.

You will want to get a head start for our July meeting on the 12th.  Dixie Murphy will be our guest and will discuss her newly released book "When Greed Turns Deadly".  I am about 50% of the way through it and it is a true page turner.  It's about a double murder committed about 20 years ago right here in Idaho Falls.  2 women were shot while they slept in the home of one of the ladies.  I believe this is Dixie's first book and it is so well written you think you are watching an episode of "48 Hours" or "Hardline".  She will tell us all about her journey writing and publishing this as well as what's happened in the 20 years since the murder.  You don't have to have read the book to join us but I highly recommend it.  You can purchase it at Barnes & Noble or on Amazon for $23.95 or it is available for Kindle or your e-reader through Amazon for $7.99.  I purchased both-the hard copy so Dixie could autograph it and the e-version so I can take it with me in my purse.  This will be held at Little People's Academy at 7:00 pm as well.  Everyone is welcome to come to these events so invite your husband, kids, friends, and neighbors.  It will be one you won't want to miss.
