This group was started in an effort to create a book club in the CSRA where members can eat, drink, and enjoy a good book discussion in a relaxed environment.
We meet on a monthly basis for book discussion, and the locations rotate among our members' private residences. Each month, a different member from our group volunteers to host and lead our book discussion. All members who attend our book discussions are required to bring a cocktail or appetizer (we have a list on our website where members sign up).
The type of books we read are paperback fiction, typically New York Times best sellers, and are recommended by our members. Every six months, we run a poll of all member submitted recommendations, and we vote our top 6 books. This way, all of our members know which books we are reading for the next 6 months, and are able to read at their own pace. The process of voting for new books is repeated every 5 months so that our members always know at least one month in advance what our next 6 months of books will be. Hey, we have some fast readers in this group! We also have some members who complete the read right up into the final week before discussion, and that's absolutely fine too! Some members may not be able to attend one month's book discussion due to their work schedule or personal commitments, but they are able to read the next month's book and be ready for that book discussion. Basically, our group allows for flexibility, and members are able to pace themselves and attend book discussions at their own reading pace and comfort level.
While we are primarily a book club, we also schedule one event (or more) per month for a social. Our goal is to create opportunities for members to get to know each other better and create friendships Socials include (but are not limited to) movies, brunches, dinners, member parties, and happy hours.
In short, we are an intelligent and fun group of ladies who love to get together and have a good time We hope you'll join us!
