Book Geeks Unite

I recently joined a book club, something I thought I would never do.  Honestly, the idea of being assigned a book to read was not appealing to me at all, but now I’m finding I don’t mind it because it is allowing me to discover other books and new authors I might really enjoy.  It is easy to stick to the same types of books and authors, but now being in the book club I am finding I have to put that aside and get out of the reading box I have put myself in.  It is fun discussing books with other “book geeks.”  As we discuss our opinions and thoughts on the book, I find it is really fun to express my opinions and take in other opinions of the same material.  I guess that comes from sharing a common interest with someone, the most mundane thing can be made enjoyable.  Reading is such a solitary activity, even when you are sitting with someone else while reading, but by having a club to discuss books it makes reading social.  Simple as it is, it is becoming a favorite activity of mine and I am enjoying getting to know the members of my group when we veer off topic and get to know each other a little more personally.  Doing something I never thought I would do seems to be something I am getting a tiny bit more comfortable with these days, and I start wondering where will I go next :0) and I am sure enjoying this journey.
