Great post! I love the line "A book is also the private phone call I get to have with the writer right inside my head." Yes! That is such a great description of a what a good book does for me as well. After reading this guest post, I am even more excited to read her book! Thanks!!!

Great essay--I can definitely relate! My book arrived today and I'm looking forward to starting it.


I remember those days fondly. I too, had a special routine when hubby was out of town only mine involved Ben & Jerry's instead of popcorn. Aw..the memories.

Great post. Took me down memory lane and reminded me to try to make more time for me.


What a great post! I have to agree there is no better place to escape than into the pages of a book. I'll be starting the book today and really look forward to the discussion.


I see I'm not the only one who identified with DeLaune's routine when her husband is out of town! I also stay up *way too late* (reading, of course) when my husband isn't around to remind me how late it's getting. Getting lost in a book is such a great escape.

Thanks for the post, DeLaune. I'm looking forward to the interview on BCG.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
