Because Book Club has been a sensitive subject on the board for the past year, let's keep this post friendly! Democracy hasn't worked in the past (hence a year with no book club) so I'm going to put this out there.
Part of my New Years Resolution was to read more, and be more social. Therefore I have decided to resurrect Book Club. Call it Ashlee's Book Club, call it the NE FL Book Club, I don't care. If you want to join me, and I hope you do, here's what you should know:
-Book Club will meet on the last Monday of the month (for now, holidays will change things)
-Book Club will be first and foremost about book discussion, but there will be socializing time as always. Hosts should prepare question guides at the very least so we have some direction in discussion.
-Because it is a slippery slope, at this point it has to be an all or nothing deal with babies. If you fully plan to participate, please list your preference. I'd say it's going to be either no children, or perhaps babies up to 6 months, but it has to be a consensus among participating members. Please, for the sanity of the board, only post your preference if you fully plan to be a part of the group. Because the dates are given far in advance, the hope is mom's will be able to make other arrangements for child care with children older than that. (If a participating mother has an issue with this, please bring it up at book club with members, and not a post on the board)
-Book Club is pot-luck style, so bring something tasty to share!
-Host may choose a book outright, or can poll the group for a selection at the beginning of the month. Please give adequate reading time!
Ok, so if you'd like to join and/or host, please post and pick a date from below:
