Book Club at my place, June, 2013

on June 1, 2014

Our book club get togethers were always sleepovers because geographically we are not close, and because we like to imbibe while discussing books.  And yes, we really did always discuss the books, and read many wonderful ones. Many (our spouses) thought that book club was just an excuse to get together and drink, but no, this really was a book club, albeit maybe an unusual one. Definitely a fun one. It evolved over the years as we kept adding new bookclub “rules and procedures”  which we referred to as “ordinances”, as a homage to one of our earliest reads, The Gate to Women’s Country, by Sherri S. Tepper.  One of the rules we incorporated in to book club very early on,  is “anyone who doesn’t read or finish the book, must be beer wench to the rest of book club for a period of one hour during book club meeting”.  So you get the idea, right?  Much more that your average book club, 

I am using the past tense here, because our book club has unofficially ended.  No one has actually said the words “bookclub is finished”, but we haven’t had a get together in a long time and so we all know.  I miss it, I really do, and I know that the others feel the same way.  But, life sometimes gets in the way, so, it is on hold for now.  I think this photo, taken about a year ago, was our last bookclub meeting, held at my place.


Good thing that these women are also part of “chick’s weekend”, “camper’s thanksgiving” and “christmas trees”, so I still get to see them all, just not often enough.  I love them all. 

I’ll probably post about book club again sometime.  Maybe I’ll introduce you to Barbie and Skipper, and tell how they became a part of book club.  I have a copy of our ordinances somewhere, maybe I’ll post that.  Maybe I’ll mention a little something about plaid hats, or yellow happy faces.

All of this is for the keepers and treasures part of my blog.  It has nothing to do with trash, and everything to do with friendship.
