THE DAILY GRIND BOOK CLUB
We were selected, and here we are at a book club meeting from this summer.
I think we are UNIQUE.
CONGRATS TO US!!
The Daily Grind Book Club is an eclectic group of ladies ranging in age from 50 to 84 who share a love of books, a love of family, and a love of food. We are a very relaxed group, do not chastise each other for book choices, and we respect each other’s opinion.
Our name isn't indicative of how we feel about our day. It is the name of a restaurant in Lower Burrell where our book club was born around 15 years ago.
We meet once a month at local restaurants because keeping our community businesses afloat is important to us.
Members of The Daily Grind read all genres except sci-fi and fantasy, and most members enjoy historical fiction.
What makes our club unique is the way we choose books for each month. We had problems choosing a book and wasting too much time at each meeting so we went the route listed in the next paragraph.
We compiled a list of books that each member submitted along with a brief summary, typed the list into an Excel Spreadsheet, and assigned a number to each book title. To save time, and to spare feelings, a number is pulled out of a hat at the end of each meeting, and that is the book that is chosen for the upcoming month. This solved our book-choosing problem, and we have "saved" our book club.
Another unique feature of The Daily Grind is that our members belong to at least two or more book clubs, and one of our members has a blog that features reviews of Advanced Reader Copies given to her by publishers as well as books by individual authors.
We enjoy each other's company and look forward to hearing about books read outside of the book club so we can add these books to our toppling stacks of books to be read.
