Last night I hosted our monthly book club and was amazed because this time everyone actually read the book! Sounds funny, but usually there are ten of us, and only two or three people will have finished the novel.
Consequently, it’s more like a wine and dinner club, with a few talking points thrown in about a random book we all wish we had the energy to read. No matter what we choose, the club inevitably ends up spending more time chatting about our three favorite topics: Britney Spears, child birth, and people with third nipples. Every. Single. Time. And, frankly, it never gets old!
We’ve joked about making it a magazine club, a place where we meet to discuss the latest in celebrity gossip — where everyone can swap their old US Weeklies and Peoples. But it’s not like we’re choosing books like Ulysses or The Good Earth — we read Jenna Jameson’s How to Make Love Like a Porn Star, for crying out loud. These aren’t hard books, but we just can’t seem to get our time management straight to be able to read (and I’m one of the worst offenders!).
But maybe since it’s a new year and a new decade, we’re turning over a new leaf?
