Books are something that you can share with anyone. I do share a lot especially with my family and friends. Here are some books I have read with family and friends.
My older sister is probably the person I share with the most. She is ten years older than me but books and movies are something that we can talk about. It was what brought us together when we were younger and something that we still talk about now. Even though now we have a lot more in common.
Eragon trilogy and the Divergent trilogy. These series came out years apart from each other but they were ones that my sister and I read together. We will read a book and talk about things we likes and what we found disappointing. Then if a movie is made based on the book we will watch that together. Usually through the movie we talk about how the book was so much better.
I read to my children a lot. I have read them the books by CS Lewis, The Borrowers, The Secret Garden, Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry, The Little House on the Prairie series and so much more. I love seeing how they react to books that I enjoyed as a child. It is even better when I see my older two pick up a book we read together to read it on their own.
A dear friend of mine called me one day to tell me about a book by Kathleen Morgan which she had read that she thought I would enjoy. While we did not read the book at the same time, I did read it and then we talked about it. Both of us read the book through in a day. I went on to buy the rest of the books by that author and was not disappointed in any of them. My friend also read some more by her and enjoyed them as well.
Then there are a few groups on Facebook that I belong to. One of them is a virtual book cub. We will vote on a selection of books and the one with the most votes is what we read. Then we’ll meet and discuss the book. What we thought of the plot, the characters, the general feel of the book. It is a lot of fun.
Do you belong to any book clubs?
