I belong to two book clubs. They each have different personalities, different traditions, and rarely have any of our chosen books crossed over from one club to the other. I have been in one club for five years, one for six. Both of my invitations to join the clubs were from moms I met in Bob's pre-school.
I read the monthly book selections about 60% of the time, but I always try to show up for the clubs whether I've read or finished the book or not. I just adore these ladies and the chance to get to hang out with them. When we get together, I always learn something and I always get to laugh a lot. And often, there's cake.
Oh yes, and books. I love books.
