Slice of Life Tuesday: A Book Club Christmas

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!)


  1. Your club sounds like sooooooooooooooo much fun!

    Side note: Your golden is beautiful! (Noticing the photo on the side.)

  2. I wish I had a book club, maybe someday? But I do have a writing group & we met for lunch yesterday, talked & talked about everything, but especially about new writing. I understand about the group, important stuff goes on there!

  3. There is nothing better than having a great read with friends! Then you make it even better by having your discussion in a Mexican restaurant! Now that's the way to have a good time! Happy holidays Kathy!

  4. Yup, sounds like my book club! It's really just a playdate for grown-ups. :) The book looks good though, I will suggest it when it is my turn, I think!

  5. It's been years since I've been in an adult book club - your post makes me want to start one again in the new year. Happy holidays, Kathy!

  6. How fun! I think I need a book club to join in the new year too. Happy holidays to you and yours!


  7. Sounds like a great bunch of gals to share not only books, but life. I'll have to put this book on my TBR list. You'll have to let us know the choices for the next 4 months. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
