Book Club Brunch on the beautiful Bluff brought Book Babes together with boys, babies, beaus, and bubbles! Admittedly, we probably did a disservice to a wonderful read, The House Girl, but we had an awesome day celebrating summer with friends. Most people did not read or finish but hey, between new houses, new work, new babies, and lots of travelers, we’ve had a busy month! We’ll crack the whip again eventually, but for now, I think we all just enjoyed the hang out. Thanks Jan & Jim for hosting such a rowdy bunch!
Things were a little chaotic so we didn’t have much time to make plans for August, so we figured out our plans via email. The next book we chose isn’t really a book at all, but inspired by the “Choose Your Own Adventure” series (the one pictured is in honor of Leslie, who suggested a book free-for-all). We are going to wrap up the summer reading by all choosing a title from our own personal reading lists and report back to one another in August. That way we’ll all get a little taste of lots of different titles and pick something manageable for our own summer schedules. Make sure you come ready with a summary that doesn’t give away the ending, in case you persuade anyone to read your title on their own. This will also give us time to chat over Jan’s suggestion of a friendly no read penalty – think swear jar, or mimosa fund!
We will get back to our traditional brunching, though, and meet at Pub Thirty Two (23962 Alicia Parkway, Mission Viejo, CA 92691) for our next Book Club session, Sunday August 21, 2016 at 10:30 am. In addition to your summary, bring a new title to vote on for September! Let’s stick with the “Summer Read” theme we were going to choose from this time! See you ladies in August! Meanwhile, enjoy the not-super-awesome photos below…. note Jan’s impressive frisbee jumps in one of them! We need to get the paparazzi to follow us around next time for better pics 🙂
