I'm a bit of a stubborn reader. NOT a reluctant reader, not that at all. But stubborn in that I don't particularly like having to read a specific book on a specific schedule. I like to read whatever I'm in the mood to read at any particular time. Perhaps it's a lack of self-discipline. I prefer to think of it as my Renaissance side, and my independent nature. But that's up for debate.
Because of that, my idea of the ideal book club is one in which the members gather periodically to rave about the best books they've read recently, or the ones that made them think, or made them cry, or made them shout "YES" out loud. It's made even more appealing if it involves yummy treats and possibly even adult beverages of some sort. If that meshes with your way of thinking, or if you're actually in a real book club because you're a real grown-up, have we got a treat for you!
On Tuesday, June 15th, at 7 pm, Broadway Books will be offering its annual Summer Book Talk, where we'll talk about good books to read and discuss, tell you about some new books coming out soon and what books are coming out in paperback, give you some ideas to shake a reading group out of a rut, and take recommendations for good reads from attendees. We'll offer sips and snacks, and there will be prizes!! Does it get any better than that? I think not.
All are invited, but seating is limited, so you must register in advance by paying a $5 per person fee, which will be refunded toward any purchase you make during the evening. We plan on having a great deal of fun and sharing a lot of terrific ideas. Come join us!
