Book Groups & Summer Reading
The last Monday of the month for some years now I’ve been meeting with a group of women to discuss books. My idea for this post was to write about this group, as we’re soon to take a break and embark on the season of summer reading, perhaps mention a book or two we’ve read that generated good discussion (like last month’s Gone Girl), our fun December-meeting traditions, and occasional book-related events we’ve attended, like tonight’s Wines and Spines.
Many people I know (other friends, my daughter) are also members of book groups and my plan was to start this post with a statement about how many book groups there are in Canada. My search for that information (unfindable) did lead me to something far more interesting — a story about a book group I’m sure anyone who belongs to one will appreciate — or anyone who values books. Take a minute to read it! It’s pretty inspiring!
And whatever your summer plans, happy reading!
