Hey, Kari Anne

Time for book club!

Last year as I sat down to write out my goals and plans, I found that every area I wanted to grow in conveniently started with a “C”. One of those was “connection”. We moved to this community almost six years ago now, but I still felt very disconnected. I knew that I had the power to do something about that!

So, I invited a few friends from various walks of life and asked if they wanted to get together for a book club. We don’t necessarily meet regularly. We don’t have a reading list planned out. But, we do have fun when we get together to discuss books. I truly appreciate both the connection and the reason to read more books. The women in my circle are truly thoughtful and interesting, and I’m grateful for each of them!

Truth be told, we ended up canceling our fall meeting so we haven’t met since last spring. Thus, we have multiple books to discuss this weekend: Pachinko and Daisy Jones & the Six. And, we’ll need to pick out another book. Any suggestions?

Read Your Books!

I’m also intrigued by the #readyourbooks concept. I first learned about it from Jessica Turner of the Mom Creative and Book Snobbery. The photo on this post includes just a few of the books I already own that I intend to get through this year. Many of these are books I haven’t read yet. But, some are books I plan to reread and a couple are on loan from friends. What is on your shelf that you haven’t read yet?

The library is also my friend, and most of the books I read come from the library! Have you tried the Libby app? I love that I can easily get audiobooks, for free, on my phone, from my library!!! I still like to read the physical book when I can, but I also like getting to listen while I drive!
