Book Club Update

Remember my 2 book clubs? They are still very much going on. Have I posted about them recently? Absolutely not. Why? Because I'm plum lazy, that's why. I wrote a post last fall about my struggles with keeping up with reading the titles picked for these clubs and I want to say it's gotten better.  Ahem. It hasn't. But darnit I do try and I am honest when I know I just won't like something. Like Cloud Atlas. No thank you. 
Luckily my ladies in both clubs really understand and are truly laid back. Gotta love that.
The Ladies Book Club continues to meet every month at someone's house and we dish about life and enjoy loads of treats that are really not good for us. Our picks are varied and sometimes on the lighter side, like in next month's case; Let's pretend this never happened by Jenny Lawson. HILARIOUS!!!

Books, Bottle or Bars book club is every other month and our list is picked and settled at the beginning of the year. Last month was Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. I cracked it open, attempted the audio and promptly ignored it after that. Our next choice is Looking for Alaska by John Green. I can do that one.

My update is simply to assure you all that the book clubs are still in existence and I will try to post something more often than not but it may  not be every month.

I did get the opportunity to go to a Reader's Advisory Round Table/MLA Book Club with a library co-worker called Tomes on Tap.  We read Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver and I chose to listen to it.  It was pretty good. Next up is Keeping Hope Alive by Dr. Hawa Abdi. Being the new addition, I got to pick! No pressure. Guess that means I'm in  a third book club somewhat officially.

I can do this.

Sure I can.

That's it for now.

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Cool. I would love a comeback/update.

I think we all get all slumpy sometimes. I think I'm in it right now which is why I elected to not participate in Armchair BEA this year. I'm in full on overwhelm mode, I do believe. =O(

I'm glad my button is still going strong. It is a nice button, if I dare say so. =O)

So, you didn't like Cloud Atlas? What didn't you like about it? Just curious. I've been wanting to read it. I loved the movie.

I'm reading Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible in June. Have you read it?

Yay for book clubs! Not that I'd have time to attend one currently...*sigh*...but it's good to know that they are not dying out. KUDOS to you for making the effort regardless of your actual success. ^_^ Happy reading!
