guest post: book club.

{screenshot from a video by Kinga Burza for Kate Spade}

First off, I absolutely loved hearing everybody's responses to yesterday's post about the Myer-Briggs. Turns out a whole lot of introverts and eldest children read this blog, and the extroverts and younger siblings? Well, goodness knows we need you to balance us all out.

I'm going to be over in the comments today continuing the discussion, so if you commented yesterday and want to chat, head back to yesterday's post. I'll meet you there.

In the meantime, Elizabeth over at E Tells Tales graciously offered me the opportunity to share my thoughts on starting your own book club. Elizabeth just hosted her first meeting, and she described it so well. "It made me miss college. The part where you all read the same book and then talk trash about the characters you don't like and nod in agreement about the good parts too. Does anybody else miss that? Because I do." Um, yes. Me. I miss that.

You guys know how passionate I am about the written word and gathering together to celebrate with the people you love, so book club happens to be one of my most favorite things. I'd love it if you'd join me over at Elizabeth's and leave your thoughts on book clubs, both starting them and joining them. I offered my tips and tricks, but I'm sure you've got more. The guest post is here if you'd like to join the conversation.

Very practical advice! I'm one of E's regulars, and she's never had anybody guest post before, never! so I had to come check you out and say thanks!

I just read your guest post on E's blog too and I'm glad I found you! I love reading (was a literature major in college) and I would love to be a part of a book club. But so far I think I only have 1 friend who would join :-/ but thanks for the tips! I really like your blog and am going to keep reading! Your writing is fabulous.
