Around a year ago I was lucky enough to be invited to join a book club. A fellow teacher at my school also coincidentally lived in the same complex as me so when she hosted book club at her house, she invited me to join. It was a lot of fun!
We sat around drinking wine, eating snacks and chatting. Oh yeah, and some talk of the book, haha.
I love it because it forces me to read books outside of my normal genres. I generally choose light and fluffy books since I read before I go to sleep at night. Travelogues like A Year in Provence are my favorite. I guess I’m an armchair traveler.
Every month someone different will choose a book and it makes it exciting that way. I’ve read some great books over time because of it. I’ve also read some books that weren’t my favorite ( some of them I chose 😂), but it expands my world and I am so grateful for that. I am also grateful for the friendships and social hour that we enjoy over a bottle of wine and deviled eggs.
I highly encourage everyone to join or start a book club! If you aren’t sure where to look for books, try the New York Times Bestseller’s list or Oprah’s Book Club list. Now get reading!
