Q. Do you have anyone that you can discuss books with IRL? Tell us about him/her.
I am a member of a few book clubs in my area. (See here for my Book Clubbers Anonymous post!) So far, none of them have been the stereotypical book clubs you see on TV that people make fun of. The people are great and we have a lot of fun discussing the books, among other things.
But there's nothing like discussing a book with a girlfriend whom you relate to in many other ways. Lucky for you, she has an adorable blog called That is all, so you can go check her out! Ashley was the one that got me reading The Hunger Games. Every time I'd reach a certain climactic part in the book(s), I Couldn't wait to tell her about it, as she was ahead of me in the series. We've recommended books to each other, and a lot of the books on my to-read list came from her. I've also convinced her to go to some book club meetings with me where we'll be discussing The Hunger Games and Finny, where the author, Justin Kramon, will be joining us.
I also got my husband, B, to read The Hunger Games. He's a mathematician, so fiction isn't really his cup of tea. Of course, he LOVED it! I had so much fun discussing the series with him.
Up until very recently, I haven't had anyone to discuss books with because none of my friends read the same books I did. Boy was I missing out!
