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.

But did I do that?

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!

20) What Your Night Was Like

Sorry for the creepy picture, I couldn’t find a “night” scene I liked.

So I didn’t do that much tonight, nothing too interesting. But here we go: (btw I’m counting night at starting at 5:00 pm)

The first thing I did was go to an art show

Eugène_Delacroix_-_La_liberté_guidant_le_peuple

It was in our local gallery and was an exhibit of artwork done by the art center for disabled people. The pieces there were really nice, and if I had a had a house I definitely would have bought something.

After that I went and got a hamburger for dinner.

After that I came home and read a historical fiction novel on the sinking of the Titanic, The Girl Who Came Home. I liked that it was written from the point of view of an Irish woman, but didn’t like the rest of the setup and constant switching from past to present, and all the characters.

After I finished the book I was really in the mood for one of my favorite gangster/drama films:

Goodfellas

And that was it. Pretty basic and singular.

But hey, who can party every night. It’s nice to just relax and enjoy a quiet night.

Which translates for me to:
Saturday and Doing Nothing

And of course to me nothing doesn’t really mean nothing, it means:
