Bookclub Books-1
When I didn’t have kids, my first bookclub was mostly moms – sometimes it was hard to relate, since they seemed to talk about their kids more than the books. When I moved to Providence, I didn’t find a new bookclub to join again until I had kids. Four months after my twins were born, I was invited to join one. What timing? Longing for a night out to pretend I still had brain cells left, I joined, even though I was completely sleep deprived. I am now like one of those moms in my old bookclub. Bookclub has taken on a whole new meaning for me. I read many of the books (but not all of them), swap parenting tips, share food and drinks, and have a night out with other interesting women.
