Wine and Book Club - February

  • Feb 7, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Irma's Place

It is that time again for the February Book Club Pick, January was another great group with great conversation and of course in perfect Wineaux fashion great wine! For February we will be reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.

Here is how it will work - get the book, try and have it finished by the meetup (even if you don't finish it still come) and bring a bottle of wine. The host will provide light appetizers and you all will provide the conversation, opinions and general fun for the evening.

At the end of the February book club we will announce our March host and the next book.

A bit about our February book:

Rubin is not an unhappy woman: she has a loving husband, two great kids and a writing career in New York City. Still, she could-and, arguably, should-be happier. Thus, her methodical (and bizarre) happiness project: spend one year achieving careful, measurable goals in different areas of life (marriage, work, parenting, self-fulfillment) and build on them cumulatively, using concrete steps (such as, in January, going to bed earlier, exercising better, getting organized, and "acting more energetic"). By December, she's striving bemusedly to keep increasing happiness in every aspect of her life. The outcome is good, not perfect (in accordance with one of her "Secrets of Adulthood": "Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good"), but Rubin's funny, perceptive account is both inspirational and forgiving, and sprinkled with just enough wise tips, concrete advice and timely research (including all those other recent books on happiness) to qualify as self-help. Defying self-help expectations, however, Rubin writes with keen senses of self and narrative, balancing the personal and the universal with a light touch. Rubin's project makes curiously compulsive reading, which is enough to make any reader happy.

**Also as a reminder we use the three strikes you're out rule if you do not cancel your RSVP by 3p the day of book club. We hope to get a great group of 12 people that will show up to discuss every month. With a waiting list last month there is no reason to not have full attendance every month! Happy Reading!
