I love my book club. I know I have said that before, but I really do love my book club! We met on Monday for lunch at our special place: Cebollas. The first thing we noticed as we shuffled back to the last booth, was the stocking hanging above our seats. Juan was welcoming us!
We always tease Juan and ask him to join our club and discuss the book. He grabs the book and seriously looks at the cover. Then with a serious voice he says, "Yes, this book has a title. It is a good title. Okay, back to the gossip talk!" He tells us that we talk about the book just a little and everything else a lot.
Well, this time we had lots to say about Still Life by Louise Penny. We discussed the characters and how they interacted with each other. We discussed the setting and how we all would love to live in Twin Pines. We discussed the way the author used red herrings to throw us off the track. We talked about who had figured out the villain and who had been fooled. We loved the book so much, many of us want to read the whole series.
Yes, I love my book club for challenging me, for entertaining me and for always being there for me! These gals are the BEST. We have already picked our books for the next four months. We like to know what's coming!
Hope you have someone to share your reading thoughts with as you go through your reading times. Hope you also have a very Merry Christmas and that you get time to just sit back and enjoy a good book! (with candy and a cup of novel tea is perfect!)
