Why I’m Afraid to Join a Book Club, and Other Social Anxieties — 6 Comments

  1. Natalie, I would love it if you came to MY book club! It’s the first one I’ve ever been a part of and people cycle in and out, but it’s always fun. And whoever hosts makes dinner and somebody’s always pregnant so there’s always bubbly water and other fun alcohol free beverages. I can see Rhea’s point, but it all depends on who’s sitting around the living room. Granted, there are times when it is all about the wine/apfelschorle and not everybody finished the book, but other times there’s really intriguing conversation and personal confessions.

    Either way, there are others out there who swing to the more intellectual side of things waiting to find people like them. But of course nobody HAS to join one, and frankly I’m a little put off now that I know it’s the thing to do. I tend to back away from such things.

    But my spinach dip is hot and has bacon in it, just so you know.

    • I guess I just haven’t stumbled upon people like that too much in my neck of the woods. I’ll come to your book club – it’s only like a fifteen hour flight from LAX, right? 😉 The spinach dip with bacon in it alone sounds worth the trip!!
