Book Club

Recently, my girlfriends and I decided to start a book club.  Now this is not your typical book club … although we may have wine, we do engage in discussions about our latest book, and there is always plenty of laughter.  However, what makes this book club unique is that we all live hundreds of miles away from one another.  Google Duo allows us to feel as if we are all in the same room when we are actually miles away in different states. 
Now anyone that knows me knows that I love to read and really enjoy a nice glass of wine, but being able to share both with good friends make them so much more enjoyable.  The first book that we chose to read was Becoming by Michelle Obama and we have been averaging about a book per month.  Our last book that we just finished was The Warmth Of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson, took a little bit longer to finish because it was well over 500 pages and the print was pretty small.  This book is definitely one of my favorites and I would highly recommend that this book be added to your personal library.  The author does a fabulous job of explaining the great migration of Black folk from the south to the north in an effort to escape the horrible injustices of Jim Crow.
The nice thing about our cyber book club is that not only do we discuss our chosen book, we also discuss things like voter registration, wines, our kids, and hair … remember I did say these are my girlfriends, so nothing is really off limits.
Reading is a great way to pass the time and to unwind and relax.  If you haven’t read a good book in while I encourage you to download a book or visit your favorite book store and purchase a couple of books that interest you.  Start your own book club or cyber book club like my friends and I did.  If you are reading something that is really interesting, please leave me a note in the comments to let me know.
Until next time.  Happy reading 📖🍷😊

  1. Our Cyber Book Club is the best! Our selections have been awesome! We are learning so much about ourselves and each other, which makes it really nice. There’s no judgement so we are able to comment about most anything😊 The book club also many times gives us reason to pause and rethink some things! I’m so glad we started this book club aka Cyber Book Club (CBC). Google Duo makes me feel we’re all together in my living room. #cbc💯

  2. Who knew that this would be so much fun!!! We are about to tackle our 5the book and we are not slowing down. We may be able to actually have an in person book discussion in April when we hook up in Ohio. Wouldn't that be awesome? ��❤����������

  3. Engaging in meaningful dialogue while kicking back with you ladies has been so much fun! And thanks for introducing me to Google Duo, who knew!!!����‍♀️ I love the fact that we are challenging ourselves to come out of our comfort zone and try different literary styles and genres!❤️❤️❤️📚🍷
