I’m pretty sure I could never be in a book club. I would totally be that member that didn’t read the book and showed up for the wine and snacks. And then would have nothing to contribute discussion-wise.
In high school and college, I never really enjoyed reading because there was so much REQUIRED reading. But every summer, I loved reading. Simply because it wasn’t required. It was simply for fun and enjoyment. That’s my favorite kind of reading.
Well, in the past two weeks, I’ve felt like I’ve been in a mini book club. Cent downloaded The Hunger Games to his Kindle a few weeks ago, and beyond all self-control, I started reading. I thought I would read a chapter or two. I ended up reading ten chapters in that first siting. And essentially, I stole his Kindle from him, forcing him to read on his iPad instead. Luckily, Cent loves me and forgave me for taking his device. All the while I wanted to talk to him about the book, but I didn’t want to spoil any parts that he hadn’t read yet.
It was the first time since college that I’ve read a book at the same time as someone else. It was kinda fun.
And The Hunger Games? SO GOOD. I was a little skeptical at first because I had read the book jacket and I wasn’t totally interested. But Suzanne Collins has this way of crafting her chapters so that you are addicted and can’t wait to read more. I’m looking forward to the movie!
Cent just downloaded the second book, Catching Fire, and I warned him that my Kindle thieving would recommence.
What’s a favorite book you’ve read recently?
