My Aunt Judy( My Dads Sister) and I joined a Book Club almost three years ago.
This was her and I in August at one of our BC's birthday parties.
I am the youngest BC in the group. BY FAR...
We eat fabulous meals, drink wine ( not me) and enjoy each others company once a month.
I am hosting this month at my Aunt Judy's house I live about 40 minutes from the town where BC is based. So I cook but use her house.
We have read some fabulous book and then some not so fabulous books.One got great reviews and just was a bomb, one was by a local author who was at the local library for an event and it was one of our favorites ever! So you just never know.
I took about a year of not steadily going to BC, but I made a vow to myself that I would from now on attend every month and read the book. Sometimes we get so busy talking that we don't even get to the book ! That is how much fun these ladies are. They( I can't go much) have gone to Wine Tasting, Poetry Readings, Book Events and Art Tours. They have become friends outside of monthly BC.
We have members that come that have NEVER read any of the books, they just come to have a night out. I think that says alot about our group.
BC Book for MARCH is : The Last Chinese Chef.
She actually came to our BC our Very First Meeting, her Book Lost In Translation is still one of our favorites!
