The Reading Group

The other night I finished reading The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul, which is the July read for my book club.  Yes, I am one of those nerds.  I'd been searching for a reading group to join (my local library told me there was a waiting list of 10+ people for theirs.  Mercy, what are they reading in there?) when a friend started one up right under my nose :)

So, my reading group aspirations are simple:  I'm not expecting to like all the selections, it's not the point - I want to be exposed to books and authors that aren't on my radar and to be challenged by ideas and issues I don't normally think about.  Oh, and a great cup of coffee (vino anyone?) when we meet to discuss the book.

Now, there are 18 members in our group and with our licorice-all-sorts personalities I can't help but wonder if something like this could happen one day?

  1. OOh! I love knowing what other book clubs are reading. Do be sure to post often about what you're reading :)

  2. What an interesting title. My husband is off to Kabul shortly, not quite on the coffee shop trail though, love Posie

  3. I think it sounds interesting. I would join a book club too! I would hope that it involves wine :)

  4. Looking forward to your selection Nic!

  5. I don;t think I have the stamina for a book club. I tend to read in fits and spurts :) I really like the idea of it though, getting together with other people to discuss what I've read.
