Today I took part in an adult book club meeting. I am a huge bookworm but I have never been part of a book club. As part of my New Years resolution, I decided to give it a try. I figured if I didn’t like it then I wouldn’t go back and if I did then I could continue. Right at this morning, I have not decided if I liked it or not.
The book we had to read for it was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. The women who were part of the book club are very nice and insightful. A down side is that I am the youngest person there. Everyone else is much older. I have no problem with age and enjoyed discussing this book with these women. But, I think it would have been nice to have at least one more person who was closer in age. I did enjoy all the different opinions. We each took something from the book that related to our personal lives and they weren’t the same at all.
I decided to give it another shot to see if I can make a decision. I don’t really have any reason not to like it. I just don’t know if discussing what I read is my thing. I’ve always been an independent reader, but it is nice to have other women to talk to and learn about.
If it hadn’t been for my resolution to get out of my shell and try something new, I probably wouldn’t have signed up. I will keep you all informed on my take of the next meeting.
What are your feelings on book clubs or any group type hobbies?
