What we're about

Do you have a stack of unread books collecting dust on your night stand? Do you PIN books to your "Bookworm Pinterest Board" and that's as far as you get? Is 2018 your year to get out of your comfort zone and meet more people? Well, hot damn! this just may be the book club for you.

Take a break from the rat race and get back to more important things like: good conversation, laughter, women supporting women, dinner and drinks that contain alcohol (or not) completely your choice and of course, reading! Ladies, this is a no judgement zone... trust me, your only regret will be, "Why didn't I do this sooner?"

If you have the slightest interest in meeting new people, open to laughter and of course, fitting in more reading time in your busy life... I'd say, this group is for you!

This group is intended to bring like-minded women together. To welcome women that live in our community, who may be new to the area or who may be considering a move to Illinois. For any woman that simply wants to read a little more, laugh a little more and enjoy the company of human beings over social media. Because I know, I am not the only wine drinking, food loving, hopeful reader who is tired of texts, instant messenger and emails & desperately wants to do this the old-fashioned way, face to face.

Who's with me?! Go on then, push that "Join Group" button & let's get socializing!

Each month, let's collectively pick a book and try to find the time in our busy lives to read it. Not to worry, if your job gets crazy, the flu sneaks in or you just didn't like the book, we will still get together to discuss the parts of it we did read. Drinks, food & good company. Start the beginning of your month stress free and form some new friendships as an added benefit. Quite a concept, hey? This is more about women supporting women and less about, there will be a quiz at the end of the book.

Please don't misunderstand. You really should try to read the book. Reading is good for you. Reading encourages conversation. Conversation leads to friendship. Friendship leads to fun. See how that works? Read The Book. Make the time. At the very least, have an extra glass of wine & be open in discussion. There's no judgement here. Above all, be courteous and really mean it when you RSVP. There is work that goes into reserving the location and count expected.

Have social location ideas or input as to how our events could be greater events? Please share! I encourage a collaborative effort! Here's to future conversations, friendships & fun! - Lora
