So through a random bit of chance and a facebook thread (where two of my friends were discussing a book one had loaned the other) I started a book club of my own with a small group of girlfriends. We had our first discussion last night over snacks and wine (and hard cider!). We read and discussed Lois Lowry's The Giver. Everyone really enjoyed the book and the book club experience, too. We'll be doing it again.
Woohoo. I am so happy.
And I surprised myself today by finding that I've been pondering if the best of both worlds would be involvement in two clubs, one of my peers and one of the older ladies that tend to populated most of our local book clubs. A full spectrum of reading and discussion where both the people and the books open me to new, strange ideas....not that my girlfriends don't do that, too. I like to hear the stories from the older generation, maybe I'd like their books more than I initially thought.
We'll just see....
