Welcome to Booking Through Thursday, where we have a conversation about all things bookish.
Do you like to talk about what you read? Do you have somebody to talk WITH?
(Because not everybody does. I haven’t had someone to really chat about a book with since college.)
I cannot remember the last time I had a real conversation in real life about the books I am reading or have read. All of those conversations are online for me these days.
Yes, back in college was probably the last time I had such a conversation, except for a short time afterwards when I belonged to a book club. But that book club was more of an opportunity for some of the members to show off their literary muscle, so to speak.
I remember that I did not enjoy this book club.
Later I attended a book club (about four years ago) in which the participants had invited me, as they had read one of the books I wrote and were talking about it. I loved their insights into the characters and they even brought out some things I hadn’t thought of about them….
I would love to belong to a book club nowadays, but in the meantime, I’m enjoying sharing bookish thoughts with bloggers.
