At long last, it is time for the next WM book club announcement & scheduling of our next gathering. I regret we didn’t have one before the holidays but it just didn’t seem logistically possible.
But before we can move on to the next one, let’s first take this time to enjoy a peek at the last meeting….if you’ve wondered, Should I go to book club? What if I don’t know anyone? Are they freaks? Will I have fun? Fret not, kittens, here’s a great insight into what happens at WM Book Club (after we discuss the book, of course)
And now, you realize, not only do you NOT have lip gloss that glows but you’ve absolutely been missing out. Right?
So, let’s look ahead to the new year, when we will be honoring our resolutions by not making any because we are already awesome – oh wait – scratch that – we will make a new years resolution to spend more time OUT with a spouse, a partner or girlfriends – to give ourselves a break. And what better way to fulfill this resolution than by joining moi in January for book club?
What book will we be discussing, you ask?
Drumroll…..The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman.
Why this book, you ask?
Because I read it and I can’t stop thinking about it…..and I would love to actually sit down and discuss it. That’s why.
Did I love the book?
(Do you like how I am interviewing myself, because I do).
I didn’t love it like I loved The Glass Castle or The Red Tent. In fact, I was able to put it down and walk away and not even feel tempted to pick it up for a few days. But then I got through the middle part and inched closer to learning what was going to happen to this baby that drifted onto an island and was raised by the people who found her….and I couldn’t put it down. And I can’t say much more than that. My point – if you find it slow in the middle, if you skim over some parts because you want to get closer to the end – know that I was right there with you – but it’s all worth it. I am eager to talk with others and hear what they would do…and if they understand why they kept the baby….or not.
So when should we get together? How about Tuesday January 22nd, 2013 at 7:30pm….at our regular location which is the hotel bar in the Ritz at Tysons Corner – it’s easy for everyone to get too, parking is easy, and the seats are comfy and we can hear ourselves talk. If you object to this date suggestion, please comment here or on the WM Facebook page and I will suggest another date. I’ll keep all other book club talk on the WM FB page, so join us there or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you aren’t on FB but want to keep up with details, conversations, etc of our next meeting.
Final question – will you be the STAR of the next WM Book Club Movie?
Possibly. Quite possibly. A special thank you to my sister, Emily, of Born Lucky Studios, for making that video pretty hilarious.
