So I joined a book club! You are probably wondering how a Librarian cannot already be a member of a book club – and for the longest time I wondered the same thing. A few years ago, I tried to start one with my girlfriends. We read Memoirs of a Geisha and met only once. It was not a big success. Probably due to many of us not living in the same town. I looked into a few since then, but most seem to have an older member base, and well, I wanted a club of girls who are about the same age, going through the same things. So when a notice on Stratford Parents Online came up, I jumped on it. There are about 7 of us that are going to read fun reads or bestsellers.
Our first book is… Watermelon by Marian Keyes!
I started it yesterday – and so far it is funny, sarcastic, and sad. Looks like a great read! I am a huge chicklit fan – and can’t believe I haven’t read this one yet.
We meet on April 14th – can’t wait!
