Book Club

I recently joined a book club. We meet at a wine bar. Books and wine – a perfect combination one Wednesday a month. I love it!

 

But, I have a dirty little secret. No one there knows I work in publishing outside of a friend who also attends. It’s under wraps.

 

Book club provides such a wonderful opportunity to share the “other side” of the business. I’m reading new and different titles. I’m listening and sharing with other readers. I love it!

 

Part of the fun is attending as a reader. A general consumer. A book lover and a wine drinker. True, I sometimes have to hold my tongue when misleading, untrue (and often funny) comments are made about the publishing industry. I just smile and nod with the rest of the ladies and pretend I don’t know what they are talking about.

 

Is it wrong to tuck away my professional life for 2 hours a month? I don’t think so. For those two hours I can be just like everyone else.

 

Sharing, listening and hanging out with other book people at book club and secretly remembering why I got into this business in the first place.

  1. I think that sounds like wonderful fun. No, I don’t think it’s wrong to take a night off.
