  1. This is a nice way to reflect on your successful book club! How wonderful they can be, right?
    I was at a funeral yesterday and someone reminisced about how they were so moved when they realized their whole book club had made it to their mother’s funeral. But of course!they would be there!

  2. How lucky you all are! Lifelong book group friends are the best. I’ve been with mine for about 28 years and we have been through many life changes together, too. I ish you many more years together!
