I love my family book club; hanging out with the kids, building common connections and creating memories. I usually enjoy the books we read, even if they are a little young and usually magical. But I’m always reading my own book on the side, and I’ve really been enjoying historical fiction. A couple of my kiddos are mildly interested in the books I read, but they haven’t read them yet. Which is OK, I just don’t have many chances to talk to grown ups about the books I like the most.
I was talking to one of my Cub Scout leaders and she said she wanted to join a book club. I’ve heard of a book club that some of my other friends are part of, but the date is inconsistent and only posted on Facebook, which I don’t have, so I miss out. So we’re starting our own book club! I’m so excited. She borrowed my copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and we’re going to meet in two or three weeks for our first book club!
If you’re local and would like to join us, email me and I’ll fill you in on the date, time and place!
