This was originally posted as part of a weekly linkup several years ago. But I still belong to the book club!
So I belong to a book club and it’s pretty awesome. For one thing, it’s located right next door, so the fact that drinking wine is a large part of the meeting is not a problem. A book club that sends its members home tipsy is kind of cool, don’t you think? Second, we have an eclectic and fun mix of people who attend–men and women. Third, my neighbor makes lots of yummy treats, so the meeting doubles as dinner. Four, no one cares if you read the book or not. Five, we don’t just stick to one genre–we read all kinds of interesting stuff. Six, of course we talk about the book, but we also get off topic and talk about all kinds of things. Seven, our meetings have been known to go on until midnight! Seriously!
This is all to lead up to what I am reading Wednesday although to be honest it should be called what I might be reading LATER on Wednesday, because I haven’t even borrowed the book (there’s another perk!) from my neighbor yet. But I do plan to do so later today, and since our meeting is Monday I should be able to tell you all about this book next week:
In the meantime, I got the idea that it would be fun to re-read all my Patricia Cornwell novels in order. (See, that’s the kind of thing I do. That’s why I’m always waiting till the last minute to read the book club book.) These are some of the few books I salvaged from the fire, plus I’ve added new ones since. I’ve just gotten started, so I am reading this one:
I also finished up the Love Inspired romances I was reading last week, but you don’t want to hear about those. 🙂
If you want to see some other good books, check out the other entries in the linkup here.
Sounds like a great Book Club. That book looks interesting.
I hope it turns out to be! I’ll let everyone know next week. 🙂
Leslie, I would LOVE to live next door to you and be able to enjoy the book club as well as having you for a neighbor! I just finished “The Age Of Miracles” by Karen Thompson Walker and I absolutely loved it.
I’d love that too! 🙂
I would love to have an active in real life book club again.
It’s so much fun! We are meeting tonight but I am only 2/3 through the book.
