I think I’ve finally found a book club that works for me. In other words, I can drinks tons of wine, we can have a great discussion, a little dinner, and… some more wine. During the first book club, we read Loving Frank:
Excellent read, even if I did finish it after we met. Next up was What is the What by Dave Eggers:
I feel as though I strong armed the group into reading this one because I’d had it sitting on my bookshelf since the Democratic National Convention in August – shout out to the AWESOME Tattered Cover bookstore where I also purchased two other books (couldn’t resist) – and sitting in my mind’s bookshelf since it came out. Anyway, I’m glad I did, because this book was awesome. We all really enjoyed it and had a pretty intense discussion about U.S. policies on immigration, development, and the public school system. Yay us.
Still, this book was a little heavy, so for the next month, we’ve decided to go with American Wife: A Novel:
I’m totally stoked (again) because it’ll be a quick, but enjoyable read. And I already own it, so bonus!
Are any of you in a book club? What are you reading?
