I love to read. When I was a kid, I used to keep a book on my nightstand, another in the back of the car, and usually another one in my desk at school, and I would read them all at the same time -- depending on where I was. I might be dating myself, but titles always varied between "Sweet Valley High," "The Boxcar Children," "Little House on the Prairie" and "The Baby-sitter's Club." I can still name all of the Babysitters! But I'll spare you. Point of the story is, I've loved to read since I was able to pick up a book. And as an adult, I try to fit as many books into my schedule as humanly possible. (Here are a few of my favorite reads from the blog achieves, in case you're interested!)
Something I have always wanted to do is organize a book club. The idea of getting together with friends to discuss a book sounds so fun to me. (Loosely discuss, I imagine, with lots of wine drinking and the occasional off-topic discussion of the latest Housewives episode. I kind of just want an excuse to buy this tote.) So, I want to know: have any of you started a book club, or are you a member of one right now? Is it casual or serious, and what kind of books do y'all read? Do you meet online or in person? I recently did a little research and wrote a book club how-to over at TLC Family, if you all would like to take a peek. After reading so much about different book clubs, I really, really want to start one of my own.
Who wants to join?
