I just want to give a "thumbs up" to the Book Club area of this website. I have recently been writing reviews on the cookbooks and other books that I have been getting from the library and enjoy reading the other reviews that members post and comment on. The Book Club is a link accessible to the left for any newbies who may not have had the time to check out the resources available there. I am an avid reader and always looking for suggestions for new titles to get from my library journeys and for my ongoing list of books to purchase when I find "keeper" titles. You won't find me at Borders or any of the retail stores when I go to purchase because I have found a number of online book sellers that offer excellent pricing and service. I find a lot of deals on half.com, ebay, amazon and other less known price comparison websites. I am hoping this discussion will aim people over to the Book Club so we can share information and education on diabetes, food, nutrition and other topics of mutual interest. Take a look … check out the book!

When ever I find a book of interest, I go to our book club to see if anyone has reviewed it. I love it! What I like most is that it links straight to Amazon and I can usually order the book of interest for as little as a buck! I have grown my library a lot from reviews on this site. http://www.diabeticconnect.com/books

I love to read and find that I am always looking for information on diabetes for my endless questions to this or that situation I don't understand with myself. No, I don't go to bookstores and pay big prices for books…I shop Amazon and find very reasonable books. I was just checking out the Book Club Area and found so many books I want to get, but a little bit at a time. One that caught my attention that I ordered from Amazon is called "The Diabetes Manuifesto-Take Charge of Your Life." Title says it all to me…it is what I want to do. Think it will be awesome read as it is written by diabetic to we diabetics who live with this disease day in and day out. Seems things in the book teach information to "learn, change and then Live." I can tell this is going to be a very interesting site that I will visit time and time again. Any other readers interested?????
