Intimate Conversation with SUES Books Club
Sistahs United on the Eastern Shore Book and Social Club

Sistahs United on the Eastern Shore Book and Social Club was found on July 26, 2008 by Lori Morris. She got the idea to start the book from family and co-workers. The conversation of books always came up at family gatherings and at work. A co-worker told her she should start a book club. She invited friends and family members to the first meeting, there were 6 ladies that registered at the first meeting. Now we have 11 members. We are a small group of women on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware, we coming together once a month, for at least three hours to discuss books.

Our first book of the month was “Jezebel” by Jacqueline Thomas. We have attend the Chocolate Social and National Book Club Conference 2010. The vision for our organization is to come together as sisters to share our feelings, love of reading and to socialize. We host the Mother's Day Social each year.

BPM: Give us a deeper understanding of how important reading is to you.
I love to read a good story, I like when I see the characters as if I were looking at a movie and it keeps my attention thru the whole book.

BPM:  Would you say you read more for escape or for entertainment?
I read two to three books in one month, I read more for the escape and entertainment.

BPM: Do you download books? Do you prefer a hard copy book or a digital book?
I do not download books, I perfer to have a hard copy book. I do think that digital books will replace printed books in the near future.
