The last few months we have taken a small break from "book club" with other activities taking precedence. I want to say that while I love intelligent, stimulating discussion, it has been wonderful to simply see everyone and to hear that some people are still reading the books. I think, after a full year of meeting for book club, it is natural for things to veer off course and then correct themselves. I feel like that is what has happened.
I want to thank Susan for, first, coming with me so I have someone to chat with at 1 a.m. when I am driving back from Carlsbad and, second, for spraying everyone beautiful bronze on Wednesday night. It actually turned out to be a really fun night filled with skimpy sarongs, shower caps and pie. What more could you ask for!
We lightly discussed the wonderful book, "These is my words." The next book is "The Thirteenth Tale" and will be hosted at Carma's house on Wednesday, July 2nd (or maybe the 9th depending on everyone's schedule). Cathy selected "The Host" by Stephanie Meyer for August meeting and I will host in September for the new Twilight book "Breaking Dawn." I hope to see more of you at these upcoming meetings. It is a always a wonderful night of frivolity and friendship...something that is vital to our busy lives as women and mothers and wives.
