The Best Book Club Out There: Delicious Reads

I really am part of the best book club ever! I'd like to take credit for this amazing group of gals, but I can't. My friend, Kelly, started this group years ago and I have been going since 2009. Now this book club isn't just some girls that get together every once and a while and chat, maybe mention a book. No way. We meet once a month. And when I say "meet", I mean PARTY!  Every first Tuesday of the month, we enjoy a night all about the book. Our dinner is themed after the book or time period. We often dress up as characters.
March 2013: "The Diviners" by Libba Bray - Our 1920's Inspired Book Club Night
 A moderator presents info on the book and author, gives a quiz, and prompts discussion questions. We spend at least a few hours talking about what we loved and hated about the book, favorite quotes, etc. By the end of the night, everyone is well-fed physically (always yummy food!) and intellectually. 

Our Delicious Reads Book Club has led me to read wonderful books I would have never read on my own and to meet fabulous authors.

I could go on forever about the awesomeness of my book clubbers, but then you might want to join us too and I'm not sure how many more people we can squeeze in :). Check out our fun and start reading along with us: Delicious Reads. One day we'll be reading my book . . .
