The Joy of Books and Book Clubs

Books are a uniquely portable magic. Stephen King in On Writing

If you know me or have been reading my blogs, you know how much I love to read. I’ve been in book clubs since I retired fifteen years ago. Serious book clubs where we each read the book, have a discussion leader with great questions, and look for hidden meanings and recognize beautiful language.

I’ve read books I would have never read on my own. Once in a while I read a book I don’t like but later I’m glad I did because it pushed me out of my comfort zone and opened my eyes to something different. My next book club selection is Where the Crawdads Sing, a beautifully written book with a powerful story. Judy, a retired teacher and talented discussion leader, will help us discover new insights and come away with greater appreciation of the author, Delia Owens. What a joy!

Affirmation: Books and books clubs enhance my life.

Coaching questions: If you’d like to be in a book club, check out your local library or start one yourself. If you have no time for reading, consider audible books while you’re doing errands or working out. How do/might books enhance your life?
