  • Book club starts with a bang

    Unless one of us has a last-minute brainstorm, we've decided on a name. In case you're wondering, the name is for the new community reading group the News-Journal is sponsoring.

    The CKNJ Bookmarks.

    And we had our first meeting Sunday afternoon. Of about 22 people who signed up to participate, 13 attended. And we had a blast.

    We had all either read or were in the process of reading a book by John Grogan titled "Marley and Me," a heartwarming story of a family in the making and the wondrously neurotic dog that taught them what really matters in life.
