Preparing for Book Club

24 Feb

When it comes to this blog, I always think a lot about a book before I post a review or reflection. But for my book club, I don’t really prepare anything at all.

I usually read the book 2-3 weeks in advance, but I always read the book. The problem comes in remembering the details of something I read so far in advance. For my meeting tonight, we will discuss Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, which I devoured and finished four days after it was distributed last month.

I’ll always say to myself that I’ll go back and read my review of the book, but I’ll be honest, I never really spend the time to do that. There are others in my book clubs that finish the book the day of the meeting, some who even re-read it, and a handful who do extra research about the topic or author to share with the group. It makes me feel lazy!

Reader, can you make me feel better? What do you do to prepare for a book club meeting? Do you even do as much as me and write a review? Please leave a comment and let me know, I love to hear from you!

Until next time, write on.
