basement book club
I’m starting a book club! Not a Barnes-and-Nobles sized one, a small one…a basement-sized one.
I was in a book club a few years ago and really enjoyed it, however, I wasn’t able to commit to it longer than one year due to my busy work schedule at Desiring God. Now that I have a little more freedom in my days, I would love to be a part of something like this again.
I have several friends who are in book clubs and I love hearing about what they are reading and the kinds of things they discuss. It has encouraged me to start one of my own, (which I have never done before). This is where you can help…
I would love book recommendations and suggestions for our meeting times together.
One idea I have is to prepare food for the meetings that was mentioned in the particular book we just read. For instance, one book I would like for us to read would be: My Life in France, the autobiography of Julia Child. For that particular discussion, I would love to prepare some of the recipes that Julia herself created in her cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
Questions for you…
- Have you ever been in a book club? If so, what are some things you really enjoyed about it?
- What was your reading schedule like? One book a month? Two?
- What books have been well suited for a book club of about 6-7 women?
- Is it better to stick with the same genre of books for every meeting, or would it be good to do a mix?
Please leave your suggestions in the comments section below and I will discuss them with my book club at our first meeting! Thanks…
