Book Club Friday

Today is one of those rare occasions when all of the planets are in alignment.  In addition to welcoming the end of the work week, I have the pleasure of meeting with two book groups today.  It's what I consider book heaven.

The first meeting is at lunchtime at the local public library (a five minute drive from the library I work at). This group gathers once a month for an informal discussion of books that members have read since the last meeting. The librarian who facilitates the group is a former colleague of mine, and she and I use the opportunity to highlight forthcoming titles and offer recommendations for next reads.

The second meeting is with one of two formal book clubs that I belong to.  The group meets once a month over a leisurely dinner at a member's home. At the meeting we will be discussing Defending Jacob by William Landay, and deciding what to read for our March dinner discussion.

My weekend is definitely off to a good start . . . hope yours is too!

Enjoy the read.

Enjoy your book clubs! I have not read Defending Jacob but it is on my TBR pile. I have always wanted to be in one, maybe some day. I also hope to work at a library some day. Have a great weekend!
