Friendship Bread “Book club” details…

April 11, 2013

Our April book club pick is Friendship Bread.  If you missed the blog announcement, click here to read about it.   I am super excited to share some news with you.  I contacted author of Friendship Bread (Darien Gee),  & she has kindly offered to share a “bonus” with us.  She has a special gift on her website, for us to download through the month of April (Recipes, recipe cards, suggestions, even gift tags).  So if you are looking to make this delicious bread for a friend or neighbor, head over to Darien’s website (HERE) to get your free goodies and a warm welcome to our book club from Darien herself.

April 2013 Book Club - A Bowl Full of Lemons



– Our first book club discussion will be held on April 17th at 8pm EST.  (Chapters 1-15).

– Our final April book club discussion will be held on April 29th at 8pm EST.

All meetings take place on our Good Reads ABFOL book club page (here).



My daughter and I had fun today, making our very first “starter” for Amish Friendship Bread.  We gave it to our good friend & neighbor.  We also made a starter bag for ourselves.  I can’t wait to try it in 10 days!

    What great news! Thanks so much. Love the labels and the recipes. Looking forward to our discussion.

  2. Lisa says:

    What a great choice. I read this book early last year and I LOVED it! I even went as far as blogging about it and frankly I am a bit of a spasmodic and hopeless blogger so this tells you how much I enjoyed it.

  3. If we cannot attend the virtual book club, can we still participate? If so, how?

    • Toni says:

      Yes. You can attend and reply to the questions on goodreads any time after the meeting.

  4. Laura says:

    This is my first time reading a book with your book club. I’m so excited. I’ve been enjoying the book. The only problem is that it makes me hungry.

  5. Sounds great! I just reserved the book at my local library! I am on my way to check out the recipes now!

  6. Melanie C says:

    I just started ‘reading’ this book on CDs on my daily commute. I joined your book group and GoodReads because of your great blog. I really need help though. I cannot figure out how to post comments in the book group. Where can I get some help on this?
