So, I finally made it to my first book club ever. I have been part of the group for a while. I actually read (well…am currently reading) the book from last month, The History of Love. I’m really sad I missed the discussion. I think it would have been really interesting to hear everyone’s thoughts about it. Some of the girls didn’t love the ending, so…we shall see.
Last night, however, we did not discuss any book in particular. It was just a party…with much discussion about many things. I love meeting new women and getting to know them (in small groups). Admittedly, I was a little apprehensive, as I only really felt like I knew a few of these girls, but I had so much fun. And, there was such good food…I need to get the recipes. If I hadn’t have been so tired, I would have stayed into the wee hours of the morning. I have a feeling a few of the girls were there very, very late (I didn’t leave until after 11) and I hate missing out on a good chat.
Next month’s book: The Thirteenth Tale
You need very long arms to do a self-portrait with 10 people! I hate to leave a gathering like that early as well — you never know what fun you will miss. There is just nothing like a group of women getting together to chat!
I’m glad it worked that we both came on the same night… it was fun to hang out for a bit.PS – I just picked up Thirteenth Tale at Costco for $8.69.
Janssen…you just keep praying that I get to move there…and a book club we will start.
I wish I had a book club group. . . if you move here, let’s start one!
One of those girls looks exactly like my roommate at the MTC. Was there an Amy there last night?I love book clubs! When I move back to Nebraska, my goal is to start a book club with my friends there. I’d never been part of one until I moved to Ohio.
Lucy, what a nice compliment. I feel the same about you. I just wish we lived closer to each other!
I’m super glad you came last night. I can’t believe that was really only the second time we’ve ever hung out. You, dear Chloe, are an easy person to like:)
