Pretty Paper Book Club, it is my real life book club here in Corvallis, Oregon. We were reading Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis for this month. I finished it at our grand Sunnyside Cafe about a minute before I was supposed to be a book club. Lucky for me everyone else was just on time too.
That isn't even the best part! I am excited to announce I have met my first real-life fellow book blogger in person! YAY!! It was so fun to meet Alyce from At Home with Books who lives but 30 minutes from where I live! We gathered for lunch at Evergreen Indian Restaurant, and then off to coffee (tea or decaf too) and desert for our sugar addict tummies, Oh, and to discuss the book. It was a blast, Alyce is the perfect new addition to our group and it seems she enjoyed herself too. I am so happy she did.
The only two things I am bummed about: 1.) I brought my camera and forgot to take pictures (it is what I do every time). 2.) I have to wait a whole month to have a cool bookie day with good girlie friends again!! ....oh, what a life! ha! ;)
