Dare to read.


I've joined a book club! For a month at least. Before the holidays our neighbor had a party for our cul-de-sac and invited the neighborhood ladies to attend. With the holidays I wasn't able to make the commitment to do it, but I felt like I could for February. We are reading "Tolstoy Lied" by Rachel Kadish. I haven't started it yet as I just received it yesterday from Amazon and I have a library book to finish first ("Oh My Stars" by Lorna Landvik). I'm looking forward to it!

I have never been a part of a book club unless you count Bible study (which technically is a giant book club), so I'm looking forward to this. The women in the group range in age from their 20s to their 60s and come from all over the community. I'll do a book review and share how it goes on February 19th. I wish my mom could join a book club with me. Wouldn't that be fun?

That's funny, I was just thinking about reading again--yeah I stopped. As I am drinking a glass of red, there is a book club I am missing right now. THANKS, I WILL take your challenege and read for the next book club.

I would love to join you and it even sounds as though my age group is represented. Perhaps I will read the book and then you can tell me what the discussion was like. I love book clubs!

I love being in a book club -- and I don't have much in common with anyone else in my book club (different ages, places in life), but the books we read give us something in common...it's just really cool! Have fun! :-)
