In the fall I joined our local chapter of the Junior League. It’s a large class and I really haven’ t met that many people yet – we only have monthly meetings and the occasional social event. Most women are single, or married without kids – so sometimes it’s hard to find something to talk about.
The real reason I joined the league is to meet people…and I know that next year, when I am an active and on a committee, I’ll be meeting people left and right.
However, in my typical fashion, when I join something, I tend to jump in headfirst. And I recently joined the JL Book Club. The first meeting since I joined is next Tuesday, and I have yet to buy the book. I’ll admit I’ve been caught up in the Twilight series. And now that I am ready to read, the book is nowhere to be found. So I will miss this meeting…but hey, I’ve gone off on a tangent.
Yesterday I got an email from the woman who organizes the book club, who happens to be the mom of a little boy in Avery’s class. She was asking for people to *host* upcoming meetings. And what did I do? Volunteered. Yep, you heard it right. I am hosting the April meeting. Now it doesn’t have to be at my house, but I have to pick a location, notify everyone, etc.
AND HERE’S THE KICKER: I HAVE TO PICK THE BOOK!!!!
Yikes? What was I thinking? I have no idea what to select. So here I am – asking all of you who might swing by…read any good books lately that would be of Book Club material??? I am desperate but I figure if I start now and don’t wait until the day I have to annouce my selection that I might be better off.
So, what do you think???
