We are an all female book club in which members propose books (any topic/genre) and then choose which book to read by Poll. We meet once a month, (usually on the last Sunday) from 4 to 6PM. We used to meet at one of the many local bars and restaurants in and around Chestnut Hill, but now we meet online via Zoom. All book suggestions that appear on the poll are provided by the book club members. I like being exposed to books I wouldn't pick out on my own. I only add my own suggestions to the poll if I don't have enough from the rest of the group.
I bring discussion questions and we discuss the latest book while eating and drinking. I arrange everything and pay for the meetup group. You just have to pay for the book, any food/drink at the restaurant and your transportation. While the book club is online you are responsible to connect to the Meetup via the Zoom link on your computer or phone.
Here are a few guidelines for our group:
- You must RSVP to attend the Meetup.
- The RSVPs are capped at 20 bookies but RSVPs above 20 will go into the Wait list. If you are on the Wait list you should still read the book and plan to come. We always have people cancel at the last minute and you will be welcome!
- Please change your RSVP to NO if you have RSVP'd and then cannot attend. This allows me to know how many people to expect.
About me: Reading is my hobby. I've been running it for over 3 years now. I'm single, in my early 40's and I work from home for a large pharmaceutical company. I have two very special cats. I don't know about you but I'm having some serious contamination OCD right now and I'm pretty afraid to leave my house. I do sometimes but it is just really anxiety inducing. This book club has been pretty successful. I really enjoy it and the ladies I meet. :) <3
