A friend from exercise suggested today that we should start a book club. I’ve never joined a book club, and I resisted the radio and TV groups when they popped up.
I’m interested, now. I have been reading fiction that doesn’t require my full brain to be in gear. Sometimes I find myself re-writing a book as I read it….guessing where the author may be going, and writing my own version in my mind.
I went to my computer when I came home, and I have the 16 books from the Kathy & Judy book club on WGNRadio in Chicago, as well as six of the books from the Oprah book club.
I’m looking for other suggestions to bring to the table the first night we meet.
What would YOU want to read if you were starting a book club?
I would prefer not to read technical manuals, Cop Car. And, I’d rather read fiction than non-fiction, but I could be persuaded to change my mind on that choice.
I’m wondering just what to expect. Will I find people who talk about the author’s craft in writing the story? Will some of the members compare the book to what’s happening in their life? Will others want to delve into character development? I haven’t a clue as to what to expect!
