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.
