I haven’t talked about my book groups lately because I’ve been on a book group break for two months now. I enjoy my groups but I noticed my piles of books were growing larger because I was trying to read book group choices instead of my books.

I know some people don’t like book groups but I really enjoy them. Whether we agree or not, I can always count on lively discussions about books. What could be better than that right?

Now some of my groups have selected books I really want to read or have already read so I think I’ll be jumping back on the book group bandwagon soon. Here’s what is up ahead for me in June.

  • Foreign Authors Group held at a Borders- The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (already read)
  • Mystery Authors Group held at a Barnes & Noble – Shinju by Laura Joh Rowland (currently reading)
  • Reading MattersLabyrinth by Kate Mosse (sounds fun)
  • Slaves of GolcondaThe Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark (have always wanted to read one of her books)

So now to find a balance between book groups and the lure of my book stacks.
