Victoria decided to start a book club at the beginning of September. She thought it would be a great way to bring together our friends, force us to read books we may not have picked out for ourselves, and give us something new to try. Someone once misheard us talking about book club, and thought we said butt club. We are now adult women that refer to our book club as a butt club.
Our friend Brittney suggested the book Spoonbenders for September, which was definitely not a book I would have chosen to read myself, but it ended up being really great! There were only four participants this month, but we figured that every month would bring in different people depending on what their schedule looks like. We met up at a brewhouse, ordered some appetizers, and downed a lot of beer. We discussed the book for a while, but of course made our way through so many other conversation topics. My favorite part of the night was when we went around the table and told stories about our parents catching us doing dumb shit as kids. I'm really looking forward to our next meeting! All four of us have already bought our book for October, which is Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham.
