I have wanted to start a book club for a long time but I couldn't really get many interested in joining. I recently started a new job and thought I would ask some that I worked with if they might be interested and lo and behold, some were! We had our initial meeting on the first Saturday of June so we could all meet, as some are people I don't work with, and to decide on our first book. We each wrote down a book and put it in a large bag and had one person draw one out for our first read. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver was chosen and I was ecstatic as that was my pick. I will be leading the discussion for the book club on this selection and busy trying to come up with some great ideas. We had 6 people show up at the first meeting and I know there are a couple more joining for our first discussion. If any of you are in my area we are meeting at Panera Bread at 10:00 am est on July 7 in Elizabethtown, KY. If you aren't in the area and want to read along with us, I invite you to do so as I will be posting discussion on the blog as well. To celebrate the first selection, I am giving away a copy of the book. If you would like to enter, please leave a comment below and I will randomly choose a winner on Friday, June 15. If you are in a book club, I would love to hear about in your comment.
