Book Club in Georgetown!

  • Jul 12, 2014 · 11:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

**The winner, most definitely, was Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?**

I figured if I schedule a book club FAR in advance, I have a chance of having the book read in time! Dean and DeLuca in Georgetown is great because they have different options for everyone, and there's a large patio on the side where we can grab seating. Let's meet at 11:30, grab food and a table and discuss... which book?

 

 

I leave it up to you! Here's a few suggestions of popular book options. You can vote, or suggest something I didn't list! Here they are, a selection of Book club favorites and suggestions from online, listed by "type" with overall rating from Amazon readers, and a link to the description and reviews

 

1. A humerous option: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? 4.5 stars http://www.amazon.com/dp/0307886271/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1OWF4BKCWF5BN&coliid=I1LG4ZXDH7LGUB

2. A "Chick-lit" option: Where We Belong - 4.5 stars http://www.amazon.com/dp/0312554184/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1OWF4BKCWF5BN&coliid=I1D4B73B46DFUT

3. Afterwards Café Pick: Neither Here nor There: Travels in Europe - 4 stars http://www.amazon.com/dp/0380713802/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1OWF4BKCWF5BN&coliid=I1OA7DOG3AV77U

4. Our "Serious" option: Cutting for Stone - 4.5 stars http://www.amazon.com/dp/0375714367/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1OWF4BKCWF5BN&coliid=I2VMGVJUUEVMC6

5. A "D.C." option: This Town: Two Parties and a Funeral—Plus, Plenty of Valet Parking!—in America's Gilded Capital  - 3.5 stars http://www.amazon.com/dp/0399161309/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1OWF4BKCWF5BN&coliid=I1YHENIM6WU54I

 

I'll leave it open for a couple weeks, and then we'll all start trying to read the book!

    For those who haven't met me before - I've got a bright floral bag with me today, white shirt and tan shorts. And I'm sporting some bright lipstick. Hope that helps!

    Sorry ladies. My family reunion has been scheduled for the same weekend. I did read the Mindy book in solidarity. :-)

    I vote for either Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me or Where We Belong. Both sound good.
