A Very Relaxed Book Club

2010 March 23
by Sarah

Last spring, our church small group was chatting after Bible study when we realized that all 10 of us liked to read. Someone jokingly remarked that maybe we should form a book club. As we continued to discuss this hypothetical situation, the idea grew on us, and we decided to do a trial run: just one book with no commitment to keep going if it didn’t work out. We’re all pretty busy people so we decided to increase the time limit from the typical month to more like 6 weeks or whatever worked out for everyone’s schedule.

It’s been almost a year since that first discussion, and the experiment is still going along at its slow pace. So far we have read:

The Chosen by Chaim Potok (my pick)
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne (MC’s pick)
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie (KE’s pick)
The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (SL’s pick)
A Meaningful Life by L.J. Davis (JG’s pick) — currently reading

I love to read, but don’t actually do it nearly enough. I’m thankful for our book club and the chance to stretch my mind with things I wouldn’t necessarily pick myself.

    That sounds so fun, Sarah. I have wished that I could find a book club, but I don’t really know anyone here who does one. And talking about books with Nic is rather pointless. :-)

    For the record, the “someone” who “jokingly” recommended the book club was me. And I was totally serious :)
