This is a group for anyone who reads and likes to talk about the books you've read...possibly with a glass of wine or a beer and snacks. I've never been in a book club nor have I ever organized a group but I'm willing to give it a shot if others are interested. This is not intended as an intellectual exercise. I read for fun and would like the discussions to be light. Hoping to meet some people and make new friends. :-)
Once a few people are interested, we can pick a book and set a schedule. I prefer fiction but I'm open to all types of books.
We have chosen to read "Miss Buncle's Book" by D.E. Stevenson. Here is a description of the book from Goodreads.com:
"Barbara Buncle is in a bind. Times are harsh, and Barbara's bank account has seen better days. Stumped for ideas, Barbara draws inspiration from fellow residents of her quaint English village, writing a revealing novel that features the townsfolk as characters. The smashing bestseller is published under the pseudonym John Smith, which is a good thing because villagers recognize the truth. But what really turns her world around is when events in real life start mimicking events in the book. Funny, charming, and insightful, this novel reveals what happens when people see themselves through someone else's eyes."
We don't have a meeting location yet but I will post that information as soon as it is available. Worst case scenario, we will meet again at Rookies and try to configure the table layout so that it is more conducive to a book discussion.
