My plan was to show you all the progress I made this weekend purging our walk-in closet. I was on a roll after taking care of our linen closet last week, but yesterday afternoon found me laid up on the couch feeling crappy, so the closet isn't quite finished.
Instead, I thought I'd show you the most fabulous Friday night ever. (It's okay to be excited).
Let me just start by saying my book club is awesome. We visit houses, masonic temples, and have fancy meals. Last Friday evening upped the bar even more. We read The Bungalow by Sarah Jio as our book, and not only did we have a great time catching up and talking about it, but we actually spoke to Sarah herself!
But first...we had chocolate-covered strawberries.
It was so cool to be able to talk to the author of the book we had read! She simply called us, and I put it on speaker phone while we asked Sarah about inspiration, process, and so many aspects of the story. I felt like we were talking to a celebrity, only a really grounded, super sweet, I-want-to-be-friends-with-her celebrity.
We even got some information about Sarah's next novel coming out in September. I can't wait! All in all it was a wonderful way to spend a Friday night!
Are you part of a book club? Do you try to do activities that relate to the books you read? Have you ever gotten to speak to or meet an author or a book you've read?
