H is for Healthy Summer Book Club

The past two summers I have "led" a book study on this blog. What I mean by "led" is that I read a book and posted my thoughts on it each week. I did have some commenters, and I really appreciated the participation and input!

Two summers ago I read and discussed The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller.

Last summer I read and discussed Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv.

This summer I am shifting gears. I am planning to read and discuss Trim Healthy Mama by Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett. It is a "common sense guide to satisfy your cravings and energize your life"

If you would like to join me in the reading and discussion of the book this summer (starting the first week of June), then purchase the book and get ready!

I am linking up with Marcy at Ben and Me.


  1. Nicole I'd love to join in on this book study but this book is not available from my inter-library loan program, Do you know of any place that sells used copies of it? Amazon & Barnes & Noble have is listed for $35.00 (Ouch!)

    1. Yeah, it's not cheap. I bought mine from Amazon and it was $31.50. I couldn't find it anywhere cheaper. However, the book is about two-inches thick! At least with Amazon you could get free shipping. The shipping alone on that big ol' book would cost about $10.00, I think. Hope you can grab the book!!

    2. You can also purchase it in ebook form (pdf, kindle, nook, iPad, etc.) for $19.95. Here is the link to the Trim Healthy Mama site where it can be purchased.

  2. Great idea Nicole. I plan on joining in on the book club again. Looking forward to it.


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
