LOL--only a Yankees fan would think nine years was a "long" nine years. I'm not much of a Yankees fan (ok, not at all) but I do have to cheer for them whenever Joba Chamberlin is pitching since he's from Nebraska. But Rivera is the Yankee that really blew me away.

I know, I realize complaining about nine years is the very height of arrogance, but what can I say. My husband is relieved because I've been holding it over his head that since we met, my Yankees have not won a championship (he's not a fan at all). So now, that curse is broken, and our marriage is safe. ;)
I like Joba too, and I still feel badly for that midge attack in Cleveland. And Mariano, what can one say, he's simply stupendous.

How could a born New Englander and therefore a Red Sox fan celebrate anything Yankees. FOR SHAME!!!!

Book Club Girl

Well, to clarify, I am not a born New Englander. I was born in NY state and was unceremoniously uprooted and moved to NH at the age of 5. And for the entire time that I lived in NE (be it NH, or VT for college), I was a Yankees fan. I even attended Red Sox games wearing a Yankee hat. The only thing that kept me from getting beat up was, I assume, the fact that at the time I was a 12 year old girl. So in fact, I have been a Yankees fan from birth, and I shall be one until the day I die.
And yes, this drives my mother and sister absolutely crazy.

Serena (Savvy Verse & Wit)

I was going to say the same thing as Lisa! Only nine years. Try 100+ years between championships. Ok, I'm a Red Sox fan, and can't stand the Yankees, so I'm biased!

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.
