Upcoming Book Club Meetup

I used to attend a local BookCrossing meeting regularly and I loved it. To non-BookCrossers, I sometimes called it my "book club meeting" if I didn't have time to explain the whole awesome concept of BookCrossing. But I never regularly attended a traditional book club. You know, a formal group meeting where everyone actually reads the same book and discusses it. Since I love YA, I've been weary of groups that read more traditional book club fiction. So when my pal passionatebklvr asked me to go an upcoming book club meeting that she's leading, I hesitated for a moment and then immediately said YES (because you got to support your girlfriends, am I right?!?).

On Saturday, I'm going to my first Media Women's Book Club Meetup. I tracked down a copy of The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio by Terry Ryan through a BookCrossing trade (shout out to ekgv414 for coming through quickly). I have about a quarter of the book left to go and I'm actually enjoying it more than I thought I would. Maybe I'll even post a mini-review when I'm done...or a book club meeting wrap-up post. Yeah, that means appropriate. There's also a movie version that my friend recommends. After some time away, it's nice to be back in the book blogging world. 

If you have any book club tips or anecdotes, leave them in the comments below.
