We go wherever someone volunteers to host. Someone will email a title of a good book, and we say OK and read it. You can bring an elaborate homemade dessert, or pick something up from Costco and we will eat it, either way. You can drink wine, or not. If you didn't finish the book, or didn't even (gasp!) read it, that's OK too.
We meet once a month, give or take. If someone can't make it, there's always next time. We recently exchanged "white elephant" books, which meant someone ended up with a book on "How to Be Elegant." We tend to laugh a lot and eat too much cheese bread.
It's really not about the books at all, although that's what brings us together on a cold night in December. It's about this little community that forms for a few hours once a month, where we talk about work, life, and yes, books too.
