So, I decided that in addition to my reading for me and my enjoyment, I would start a book club. I mean, it can't be work, right? And in a way, I am correct. I have 3 other members. Yep, we consider our book club to be mighty and a whole lot of fun!
But why do I stress out over what to read each time? I mean, I know what I like to read. These are my friends. I should not be trying to hide who I am (via reading) from anyone. And come on, it is on Goodreads too.
Stress I do though! What if it is too short? What if it is too long? What if it stinks? Oh the stress of it all.
Then I had a revelation. I sometimes pick bad books. I mean, really bad books. And some drone on and on and on. And some are done way too quickly. And it is ok.
So I will continue to pick my cruddy books when it is my month to pick. And I will allow myself to not go with the flow and pick books that everyone else is reading just because I may choose wrongly. And I will have bad snacks and good drinks and enjoy every minute of these meetings as they are a true joy each month!
And if you want to know what we are reading, let me know. I can add you to our list and you can participate via the blog if you want to. I think that could be a fun and exciting adventure too!
