Then life happened and I had to leave the group in order to maintain some level of sanity (seriously my husband and I were both in grad school, each working full time, raising our 6 year old and pregnant with our second all at the same time. Something had to give!)
Now, I probably don't have to tell you that I read a lot. A. LOT. I'm sure I would even if I wasn't a librarian (because to tell you the truth I was that kid who fell asleep with the lights on while reading more often than not), but over the past few years I haven't really read many books outside of my for-middle-school-students reading until the amazing women I eat lunch with every day (the 7th grade teams at my campus)and I decided to create a lunchtime book club this year.
We have really had a great time and bonded in a whole new way. Sharing books will do that. Some of us were even able to get together today for a movie over spring break and the conversation *of course* turned to our newest selection, Tina Fey's Bossypants. I'm so excited! I just got my copy and haven't had a chance to start it yet, but I guarantee I will read it this week because we are all just so excited to have the chance to discuss it when we get back to reality next week.
(movies & food are good, too!)
