I have technically been a member of a book club now for at least six months.Every month I get the invitation in my e-mail along with the assigned book. At least three times, I have actually read the assigned book. But it seems like in the months that I read the book, I end up scheduled for something else on the night of the meeting. Or if I’m free for the meeting, I haven’t even picked up the book yet.So, the next day I get a great e-mail about the delicious wine and snacks, stimulating discussion, great turnout, etc. And I am bummed. These sound like women I would love to meet up with monthly. Those smart, witty, book-reading women my life is so lacking right now.
So, I have officially resolved to show up at least once. I suspect if I can get it together one month, I will not want to miss the next one. The next meeting is 1/24/08 and I am 3/4 of the way through the book (The Emperor’s Children by Claire Messud). I think I can, I think I can.
Really. I will. Let you know how it goes.
