Happy Two-Year Anniversary Book Club
On Sunday, June 26 “The Bookies,” my book club, celebrate our two-year Anniversary as a book club at Roadhouse restaurant. We ate and discuss the book for June, “Water for Elephants” by Sara Gruen. We also got new book boxes to put our book club invitations in, which one of the bookworms is holding in the group picture. We shared our favorite book club memories. I said that not only did we read great books but also I liked that I could vent my problems to them and know they would give me good advice. Some of us mentioned our favorite books like “The Shack” by William P. Young, “The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane” by Katherine Howe, and “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett, which is one of my personal favorites. I read “The Help” twice and look forward to seeing the movie.
For every book club anniversary we get a new patch to sew on our book bags. Our two-year Anniversary patch is of a worm leaning on books reading a book. The patch says, “READING FUN.” I got the patch on eBay. Click here to get yours. All our patches are Girl Scout patches. I put the patches in little coin envelopes, hole punched them twice on the top, and ran blue yarn to make a bow. I also made stickers with our logo and designed a 2-year candle to place on top of the logo.
Happy two year Anniversary Bookies! I’m excited for the new adventures this year’s books will take us on, for the delicious food we'll eat at book club meetings, and for our continued friendship.
