A Queen's Gambit Pinterest Board

I put this together over the weekend, images that remind me of The Queen's Gambit. Because pictures, pictures, pictures. And now that I'm back in the Pinterest game, I'll be adding more to it over time...

Here's the link for the full Pinterest board! I did try and put a one line description on each one.

I do have an image that reminds me a bit of Wil Traveler, but I haven't put it on because I can't decide if it's too specific or not. (You know? Each reader had their own character and no image of a person is ever meant to be the definitive answer for what a character may look like.) But, then again, some readers might find it helpful! There is an painting of a young red headed girl to represent Eleanor, but not necessarily be her. Perhaps that picture of Wil Traveler will be posted on the pinterest for the next book.

What do you think of the board? Any images you would add?

Beth Brower's Summer Book Club

It's high summer, when the heat is sticky or abrasive, and the swirl of activity is tipping wildly to the side. We've all had holidays and parties, with maybe a few more before settling into the mellow swing of August, and then school. In other words, there's no better time for reading. Sitting down with a glass of something cool or a dish of something sweet, and turning page after page. In the spirit of such reading, I've decided to have some fun with my books! So this is how it goes...

On July 16th, The Queen's Gambit ebook will drop down to $0.99 for the week. And there will be a blog post with a few thoughts on the book, a link to the soundtrack, some quotes and answers to any questions you want to send me on facebook or by email, which I can answer on a blog post. (If it's spoiler-alertish, send it by e-mail.) Then the next Monday, it will be time for The Ruby Prince, and we begin again!

If you've read all the books? Great! They were written so that the second read would be just as good, if not better. If there is one you haven't read? Perfect! Jump into the book club for that week! Invite a friend! Coming in late? No problem! We're not too rigid on schedule here. Speaking of schedules...
