January Spotlight

January’s Spotlight is Bookies With Class!

Our group of 11 has been together for over 12 years. We range in age from 55-80. We formed after several of the ladies became friends when attending a church-sponsored series on leading a purpose-filled life. They came up with the idea of staying in touch through a book club. I was courted (I fought the idea) by a couple of neighbors when the group was formed. I attended a meeting when it was held in one of my neighbors’ homes. My plan was to go to the meeting, and then then tell them I wasn’t interested.

December Spotlight

December’s Spotlight is The Bees!

SpotlightThis is a photo of some of the members of our book group, The Bees. We are from Superior, MT, and we meet weekly in our small local library.

We started our group a few years ago during the libraries Summer Reading Program. We enjoyed each other’s company and sharing the love of books, so we decided to keep going.

In our group we select a genre or author for the month, and we all choose our own selection, then share our thoughts of our book with the group.

November Spotlight

November’s Spotlight is Be Nice and Read a Book!

We are a group of six best friends (including one mother-daughter) that decided to start a book club in March, 2016. Our book club meetings have become the highlight of our month.

We love taking our monthly photo and try to be as creative as we can. LOL! In addition to our monthly meetings we have an annual overnight book club retreat, a tea, a picnic potluck, a dress up dinner party, a Halloween spaghetti dinner, and a Christmas Party. We use any excuse we can to get together and discuss our books.

October’s Spotlight is The Loose Ladies Club!

Our group is called Loose Ladies. There are 7 women in the group and we take turns hosting a lunch, selecting a book and leading the discussion. Our group has met now for 3 years. We read classics, mysteries, bestsellers and the recommendations from Reading Group Choices which is an invaluable tool. I also won an audio book from Reading Group Choices Everybody Rise which our group has shared and thoroughly enjoyed.

This is a post made to Facebook after our last meeting: “Finally book club with the author.
