virtual book club meeting / my life in france



you're invited to join my friend, jana, and me for an upcoming event, a virtual book club! the next meeting is monday, march 7th on jana's blog. (we have two weeks!) i do hope you'll come.

i love something new and exciting! especially when it has to do with reading + blogging. a new blog friend, jana laurene (have you seen her lovely website yet? it's a keeper / she is mighty talented!) has opened up her virtual book club to everyone. i plan to read (or, lets be real, skim through) the great books she chooses every month. i have high hopes to clean up my reputation for being a lazy book club member. still, when it's online, you can peek in on all the fun without any pressure.

i'm thrilled to be playing guest host for jana's virtual club meeting in march. awesome idea, right!? we are reading (or, gladly re-reading) one of my favorites, my life in france by julia child. more details right here. we'll lead a discussion about france, food and our la la la love for julia.

see you there. (take notes in the margins.)

p.s. a week before the virtual book club meeting, jana will post a recipe for you to whip up. that way, we'll all be snacking on the same treat while discussing the same book. how fab is that?! email jana directly if you'd like to be included on her book club list to receive updates about the monthly blog meetings, janalaurene@gmail.com.

I love this idea.
I've set a goal for myself (and my kindle) to read 50 books this year. I'm 20% finished!
I think I'll join the book club!

Oh my goodness, Marta! I love this! I love the idea of everyone nibbling the same snack while chit-chatting at your place. I'm going to see if I can pick up a copy at the library tomorrow!
