OUR BLESSED BOOK CLUB
I wanted to share our unique book club. We started in 1998 as a bunch of mothers with toddlers who wanted to get back into reading - a passion we loved but one that had dwindled with taking care of our babies.
We have 10 members in our club and each member takes one month between January and October. Each member decides the book to be read for their month and announces it at the previous month's book club meeting. She then cooks a meal at her house for the club and leads the discussion. We talk as much as we can about the book and then the rest of the night is filled with wine, laughter, catching up with each other, and solving the world's problems. :)
In November, we pick a restaurant and we treat ourselves to dinner together. We do a fun book exchange - often giving books we are considering for the next year's picks. Sometimes we share recipes - fun for the upcoming holidays.
We take December off - such a busy time - and rejoin in January for an extra long book club where we make sure to catch up with everyone!
We have talked with authors of our books on a live phone call during our meeting, gone to movies of our past books, read a wide variety of books from local authors down to the classics, and we keep a master list of all the books we've ever read.
This book club has seen babies born, children head off to college, parents die,... We have lived a lifetime together - and the bonds continue to inspire us and bring a great blessing into all our lives.
Thank you for letting us share this special group of women.
