Books take me on adventures around the world, allow me to travel though time, and teach me all kinds of different things. I love books! My mom will tell you that I was an avid reader before I could even talk. There is nothing more satisfying than reading a really good book and sharing it with others.
Two years ago, I started a little book club in my area. After putting the group on meetup.com, it has grown so large (57 book divas) that we had to close it to new members. I can't even tell you how many wonderful women are part of this group. We have shared so many stories and laughs over delicious meals and of course...drank lots and lots of wine. These lovely ladies have become some of my closest friends and confidants. Books may just be powerful enough to bind people.

What is the last great book that you read? Happy reading!
