I’m Joining a Book Club

I really love to read… I love books, I really love the smell of a book, I love my kindle, I love love reading… but recently it has slipped right down my priority list… having a new baby will do that.  But he isn’t so new anymore, and if I don’t start being deliberate about doing things I love and that are good for me, he will be moving out of home and I will be wondering why I stopped reading all those years ago.  But anyone who knows me, knows I am a rule follower and I need structure… so I have decided to get some help with my desire to read more… I have joined a book club.

I have been in a book club before, but that book club no longer exists, so I have been book club-less for a couple of years and I have really missed it.  I have missed it for a few reasons…

1. I need a deadline… a goal… this is not new information though…
2. I like being part of something bigger than me… I like being able to talk about something in common that isn’t the standard stuff.
3. I am not good at trying new books with out a good reason – book club made me read things that I would never have considered with out a push.

The book club I have joined is also pretty great because I can participate as much or as little as want… and if it all falls apart from my end… well it’s so big that no one will notice.  I have decided I am joining Reese’s Book Club from Hello Sunshine…  I feel like I am joining the new version of Oprah’s book club and that I am probably a sell out, but I have read some of here book recommendations before and I have enjoyed them, so why not ey? It appears all I have to do is post a picture of the book and tag the right things and I am in… and I don’t really need to do that, I could just read the books on the sly… but I’ll probably tag it…

I have about 50 pages left in the book I am currently reading ‘Seven Days That Divide the World’ by John C. Lennox… which has been excellent… I am all over science and creation… just ask me… it is super fascinating.  God is very very clever… but once I am done… I am in with book 1 for 2019… The Library Book by Susan Orlean with my new international book club.  If you are really lucky I might even do some reviews… I guess we will just have to watch this space.

P.S Is book club one word or two? I’m not really sure…
