I Started a Book Club

So you all know how I enjoy reading:

For years I’ve been trying to start a book club. I thought about doing one where we read a book, than watch the film version:

But did that happen?

Then I wanted to do a Jane Austen book club, where we read the books and the adaptations.

Then I thought about doing a book club where we read the book and then do something like in the book; in essence “living” the book or acting it out. Like in Daring Chloe

But did I do that?

So finally I started one, but this one is simple. We read one book a month, each member having a month where they choose the book (any type), and then we meet and discuss it with good food.

I don’t know how it will turn out, but if we make it to next year I’m planning on choosing Northanger Abbey or Persuasion to honor their 100th anniversaries.

Right now the book we are reading is The Secret of Chimneys by Agatha Christie. I’ll post after our meeting to see how it turns out!

I’ve Got a Hangover

Boy Meets World Problem

Yep, I have some big issues. I’ve got a:

I hate/love it when that happens. You have an amazing book that you just absolutely love and are involved with. You want to get to the end, the conclusion of the story, but at the same time you don’t want it to be over.

Can'tSayGoodbye

When you’re done, it’s like what do I do now?

You kind of stumble around until you find another great book and then the cycle starts all over again. Such is the life of a book lover.

BookAddict

 

And you know what, I don’t want help for my addiction.
