I’ve been with the same book group for almost twenty years (I know, longer than some marriages).
I’ve mentioned my group and their reading habits before – essentially, they’re not great at actually reading the book. Or discussing it in-depth. Sometimes the discussion is only “Did you like it? Should I read it?” (ummm…you should have read it before we got together…). But I’m fine with that because I love my book group.
I recently discovered that two of my book groupers belong to other book groups. I don’t know how I feel about that… cheated?
Are we not good enough?
What does the other group have that we don’t?
Do they read the book for the other group but not bother with our selection?
Are we not really a book group anymore but rather a bunch of friends that just gets together to debrief on the month….?
HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN GOING ON?!
So, your thoughts bloggers – when it comes to book groups, monogamous or polygamous?
