Book Club

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!

I can't wait to read The Last Chinese Chef. Thanks for sharing about your book group and your great pics.

I guess we're sort of neighbors. I'm in the Beaverton neck of the woods. I found you through that nice package you sent to Laughing Orca Ranch and thought I'd check you out. Glad I did.

Enjoy this gorgeous sunshine we're having,

I was in a new book club for a few months a couple years ago. It just sort of fizzled out because members couldn't decide on meeting locations/dates/times and books to read. I think it might have been a strange mix of ladies, too.
Some were only into romance books, while a couple goth ladies were only into science fiction. I'm open to reading just about anything, as long as their is variation each month.

I'd love to get involved in a BC again. Probably one that's been around for a while with a great bunch of ladies like the one you're in.
I'm a little envious. What a wonderful opportunity for you. Your Aunt has such a lovely smile. And geez girlfriend...you are drop dead gorgeous!!!

Funny that PetalsYoga found you through my blog. I don't remember ever seeing a comment from her. She must be one them lurkers.! lol! :D
