As I member of Meg's book club I can second this event is our most anticipated of the year! Two more fun traditions we observe are making the event a pot luck where we bring only appetizers and desserts. All low calorie and vegan of course! ;-) and second, someone plays notetaker and writes down all the books as they are opened, making note of titles, authors and those which are most stolen. This list gets emailed to the group so we can remember the books that sounded good and the members who couldn't join us can see what's on our reading list. Happy Book Swaping!


This sounds like great fun!

Rayme is a great notetaker! Thinking about last year, we read our most stolen book later in the summer - and were not universally wild about it. Interesting to see the difference between what we think we'll like and what we actually do.

I adored The Wednesday Sisters and this sounds like a fantastic tradition!

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.
