I have the privilege to have wonderful friends. In June we all decided that while we all live throughout the city and are busy with our lives we needed to find something to give us all an excuse to all get together and hang out since we don't get the chance to as often as we used to.
On of my friends suggested a book club since several of us liked to read and she wanted to get into reading. So we all decided yes! We get together once a month for dinner/appetizers or something of that nature and then discuss the book and other things. It really is an enjoyable experience!
Being that I am in school I don't always find the time to actually sit down and read the books we choose. I am a frequent amazon.com user because I can always find anything I need for about 1/2 price of most places. I am an Amazon prime member so most of the things are also free shipping. One day while I was on there they had an advertisement for their new sister company audible.com. You could join for 30 days free and get 2 credits. A credit equals 1 book. You can also just buy books off their website without being a member. Once my 30 days was up I became a gold member and for 14.95 a month I get 1 free credit which is perfect. So I tried the audio book for our 3rd book and I LOVED it. It was so nice since I spend so much time in the car, going from home, to work, or clinical or to our site. I'm a BIG fan!
Each month someone picks a book and the first month which was July was Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. You can see my book review in this post.
My goal is going to be to write a book review for each future book. I want to be able to have my thoughts on these books down in print, even if it's in blog world. The book for Februrary looks like a fun one it's The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. If anyone wants to follow along I will post the future book on here so you can read along too and let me know what you think.
Here's to Happy Reading and Enjoying expanding our Horizons!
