As my few followers might have guessed, this blog is going (has been) on hiatus. There are several reasons:
The titles/types of books preferred by the majority of the club members just don't appeal to me. I tried suggesting things, but nobody else was into them. And the one time I did suggest something, the book was so savaged at the next meeting that--while I didn't take it personally--it certainly left me feeling that my preferences didn't fit it too well with the rest of the group.
The last meeting I went to was so poorly attended, mostly because people hadn't read the book (although most of the few who did attend had not read it, either!), that I felt I had wasted my time both reading the book and coming to the meeting. What's the point?
It's not so much that book clubs aren't for me; really, it's about finding the book club that is for me. That could involve starting my own club.
I will update and/or change formats if and when I get the new club going (or join a new one.). Thanks for reading--and keep on reading!
