Nerd Fact: I belong to 2 book clubs.
Nerd Fact: I sorta love it.
I don’t know if it’s me getting older, or maybe it’s just a new trend among our generation, but I feel like I know quite a few people who have joined or started book clubs over the last few years.
Why not, right? We all read things. We all like to be social. We all like food. Combine all those things and BAM, you have a book club.
It just seems so obvious.
That and it just really seems like a solid grown-up thing to do. And I’m trying to be more grown up. So there.
Anyway, Miss Katie sent the word around that she was starting a book club and I jumped on it. I also still have my “city” book club, but I live in the excess. Like a baller.
So Friday night, after navigating a new suburb I have never been to before (look- I’m also becoming more locally savvy by joining a book club!), I was at Kelly’s door, as she was the host of the evening. Her back door, because I couldn’t figure out the parking/house set up. She didn’t seem to mind.
She made us all vegetarian lasagna.And someone brought homemade sushi. HOMEMADE SUSHI, people.
When it comes to the cake balls, I prefer to not disclose the amount I consumed.
Don’t you wish you had a book club?
It was a crazy busy week for me, so I didn’t have a chance to make food, but I still found a way to really say “I like book clubs and I like to party”.
We drank all the wines. And then talked about the book. And then talked about upcoming races because we mostly come from a healthy living blogs background.
It was bound to happen.
All this is really making me wonder why my friends and I just don’t start a dinner club. Perhaps we need to have a cultural stimulus first. Who knows?
Who of you is in a book club? And what have you read recently?
And now I just realized I didn’t even mention the book we read. It was “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein. Basically, it’s a sweet story told through the eyes of a dog and if you’re a dog person, you may ball your eyes out. You’ve been warned.
