13. BOOK CLUBS!
Ok. So yes I do book clubbing better than you. Naturally. But this isnt so much about that as it is about me just being so excited to be in a book club!
It's called The Razor's Edge Book Club, inspired by our first selection to read, which is The Razor's Edge by W. Somerset Maugham. My friend Amanda and I love reading and reading in the summer and so we decided to get organized! However we are too good to read the book and simply talk about it afterwards. So the goal is to find books that have been critically acclaimed and somewhat celebrated and then have been made into movies that have bombed in the box office and the general public opinion. This book club of course excludes the Harry Potter series. We thought it was just going to be the two of us but it looks like the club fever is catching wildfire because our friend Rebekah has joined! This is something you're going to want to get in on the ground level. We have a goal to finish the book and be watching the movie by this weekend.
We are also happy to announce that we are open to suggestions as to what our next selection should be, so long as it meets the prerequisites. Also we would like it to be geared toward adventure. I was thinking something like Huckleberry Finn then watching Tom and Huck starring J.T.T. What do you think?
Anyways, I am so excited to be reading with my buddies! And Im so excited to be experiencing the first day of summer, the longest day of the year tonight. FInally!
