Book club

Hey everyone. It’s a HOT day here in my little town and I’m sitting drinking my coffee and savoring the quiet time I have because my husband only has 2 more graveyard shifts and he will now be working some amazing new hours for the remainder of the summer!!!!!

As I sit here and look through my kindle to see what books can be erased from my library I am filled with an empty feeling of how much I have wanted to start a book club and have had no success. I only know a few people who like to read like I do but between the 4 of us the tastes in books vary greatly. So what’s a girl to do right…? Maybe I should be in my own group and make up a generic list of questions for each book and post them… have any of you hosted a book club? Were you successful?

I love the idea of a book club. Bringing together old friends or new people to read something that could be either life changing or a waste of time sounds so enticing to me. The idea first started with Oprah. My mama always read the books that Oprah’s book club recommended. I know I am not Oprah but how amazing to have an influence like that.

What do you do if you choose a book and nobody likes it? How would you start this up? With how successful all of you have made me on this blog I want to thank you and know your thoughts on this question I’ve been pondering!

Please comment your thoughts 🙂

  1. We should start a book club! It is hard when your in a group and the book choice is one that your not interested in..so I’m not sure what to do about that! Have you joined any book clubs? 🙂

      2. Right?! I know…hmm unless we do our club differently and we each read a different book and can have anyone who wants to join us! Or if like you and I find a book we want to read we can. We may be able to make it work…😂

      3. yea ash and I tried that with james when I was still working at ben franklin and because james doesnt read YA it became hard because although I love all the books james introduces to me its hard to change up the titles when one person doesnt want to read that book for the month.
