I am about to become a proud participant and member of a Book club for the first time since before having twins! Deblet and Tertia kindly invited me to join their new book club and our first meeting is tonight.
If you visit here often you’ll know that I don’t like reading, I LOVE reading. I’ll read almost anything, so I’m very happy to be joining the ranks of the Liberated Moms That Go To Bookclub. It all sounds very grown-up, doesn’t it? Snort.
I’m quite nervous. Will the other girls like me? Should I wear heels or ugg boots? Which book should I take to this new venture so I am viewed as a serious reader? Do I WANT to be viewed as a serious reader or a wine guzzling, fun-loving Mom?
Earlier I was thinking back at the various book clubs I have been a member of, and if memory serves there were about 3:
Book club 1: What books? Where’s the wine? (I was single at the time)
Book club 2: Oh look, there’s 30 of us, lets’ drink wine! (just before and just after I got married) shudder.
Book club 3: My favourite (so far of course!). A while before we had Daniel and up to when Daniel was a few months old. I loved, loved, loved this book club. Some very special friends and that is where I got Mignon’s name from. We were quite organised (thanks to that Mignon!) and we actually discussed the books we read.
Wish me well, hope everyone has a lovely evening!
ps: Have I mentioned hubby is going away on some boys thing for 4 days tomorrow? gulp.
