Best Life Book Club
For years I had wanted to be a part of a book club. Books are a part of my everyday life and I wanted to share that with others. Living in a small community though, there wasn’t a lot of options for being a part of a book club. I soon learned that my closest Barnes and Noble store hosted a monthly Book Club - I was so excited! The only down side was that I had to drive an hour to attend the book meeting and then turn around and come home. I attended a few times, but soon found I just didn’t enjoy going - mainly because I never liked any of the books they chose.

My dream of being a part of a book club were starting to fade. My best friend asked me one afternoon why I just don’t start my own. Well, why hadn’t I thought of that?! It was a genius idea. I sent out a couple invitations to a few close friends who I thought would be interested in being a part of a book club. October 2019 was our first official book club in my small community and three of my close friends (one was my sweet mom) attended. We each took turns choosing a book for the following month; we’d get together the first Thursday of the month and chat about the book and about life happenings. It felt so good to be a part of a small group that shared a lot of the same interests.

March 2020 was when our book club had to stop meeting because of the Covid-19 outbreak. Even though we were just a small group of four - we thought it best to postpone our book club get-togethers until it was safe to gather again. We were all disappointed, but we knew we could all stay in contact with each other through text and Facebook.

It was a gloomy April morning when I had the bright idea to start a book club on Facebook. I knew I would miss meeting with my local book girls, but why not take our book club virtually? I quickly typed up a post on my Facebook profile about starting a group for a book club. So many people responded. I was quite surprised! We are still considered a small group of 22 guys and gals, but we are having a great time!

Our Best Life Book Club is open to anyone who has a love for books. We chat about our favorite authors, upcoming books about to be released, blog posts on book reviews, and we share just about everyday life. Our book discussion is the last Thursday of the month and you get to choose if you want to join in that month or not. We are a pretty laid back group and I like it that way - which I think most people do too.

Our book for the month of June is *The Last Year of the War by Susan Meissner. She will be guest speaking to share more about her book on Thursday, June 25th at 7pm (central). We would love to have you join us!
