Today’s post is inspired by fellow book blog, Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer, and the weekly meme, Book Blogger Hop. Each Friday the hop begins with a prompt featuring a book-related question and continues until Thursday. The purpose of the hop is to meet and greet with fellow book bloggers and hopefully gain some new followers. This week’s topic is all about book clubs, to be specific:
How many book clubs do you belong to? If you do belong to an in-person book club, do you have meetings in the day or evening? Do you meet at someone’s house or meet at a local restaurant or coffee house?
Currently, I am not in a book club, unless you count this blog as my personal book club for one, which in my opinion doesn’t really count. That would be cheating, right?! I was in a VERY short-lived book club with my beau when we first started dating. We read one book, Lord of the Flies. Surprisingly, it was the beau who wanted to start the book club, and I happily obliged because I always wanted to be in a book club, too! However, the beau wanted us to write book reports (which I wasn’t feeling too much), but I wrote it because that was the rule of book club, and I’m always a good sport.
For the meeting part of book club, we had lunch at our local Zoup! to read our book reports to each other and discuss what we loved and didn’t love about the book. Our book club basically died on the vine with the second book, my pick of Little Women, which took me FOREVER to read because work and life got in the way, and it took me a few months to finish the book. Plus, once I finally finished the book, I definitely didn’t want to write a book report. BUT! It did pave the way to me starting this blog! YAY!!!!
So…are you part of a book club? Do you host a book club? Can I join your book club? Let us know in the comments! |RL
