Book Club!!!!

Nerd alert!! Nerd alert!!

I've always wanted to join a book club but for some reason never really put any effort forward. Guess what? No effort and it just fell into my lap. My sister has a sister in law and she called to let her know that they were starting a book club. My sister asked if she could invite me and the sister in law said sure (see not everyone has crappy inlaws!).

Last night was the first official meeting of the book club. It turns out that as of now there are 8 of us but it looks like we will probably grow to about 11 women. 11 Greek women in one place...all trying to talk about a book....at the same time...it really should be interesting. I would normally say that when you have a book club that slowly people start dropping out of it. In this case its a bit different because we all know each other going INTO the club. It's sisters, cousins, in laws, dating so and so's family member etc. When its a close group you are less likely to lose members.

I'm really excited. We already picked our first book which is Jodi Picoult's Change of Heart. It looks like its going to be a good read. I've read a few of Jodi's books and they have all been amazing. I'm very happy that one of her books was chosen for our book club. I am happy to expand my horizon in regards to types of books that I read because I really do find myself reading "chick lit" or heart breaking books like Picoult or Nicholas Sparks. I need to get back to reading thrillers and things of that sort. Maybe I shall get with the reading of the NY Best Sellers or maybe the Classics?

Our book club is meeting in like 5 weeks to discuss the book and I can read about a book a week so I have plenty of time right? Speaking of reading there is a great website called www.goodreads.com which helps you track what you've read, what you are reading, what you want to read and review books too. It's pretty good. I signed up on there so look for me and we can compare books.

I'll let you know what I think of the books as I read them. :)

Happy reading and hey...I told you it was major nerd alert! :)

  1. Book clubs are SO MUCH FUN! I started one this summer and we have such a blast when we meet. We always talk about the book about half the time and other stuff the rest - it's so nice to have a night with girlfriends! :)

    Can't wait to see what other books you read!

  2. Stopping by from the blog hop and now a new follower of your blog thru GFC, Facebook and RSS Reader. I would love a follow back on all three when you get a chance. I love to read myself and if it is a really good book I can finish it in one day but I don't get anything else done! Thanks so very much for your help and have a great day!
