book club


Tonight at book club we had flourless chocolate cake for dessert. I always forget how much I love chocolate, as we hardly ever have it at home (Cal hates it). I started attending this book club when I was pregnant with Cal. The group has been meeting for more than half my life and has shared so much together, amidst the big ideas and good food.

Delicious! What did you read? And what are you drinking? It looks so pretty.

We read Breakfast at Tiffany's! I thought it was a great read. And I don't know exactly what the drink was, but it was fruity and delicious!

Oh that chocolate cake and with raspeberries too - where did you find the recipe? It must be hard going without chocolate, no? I absolutely love but know it's not practical to prepare things not everyone likes. I'd love to get a book club together and should try to arrange something.

That is one of my favorite cakes. I liked that book too! I just finished reading Half Broken Horses by Janette Wells, such a good book!

I hate chocolate too, but I'd love to be in a book club! The stem glasses with candles in look wonderful.

Beautiful!
I am thoroughly enjoying my book club.
I have only been a member for 2 books, but I love having someone with whom to discuss what I read.
That cake doesn't look too shabby either :)

Oh yum. I don't belong to a book club, but I know many who love it simply for the connections and social aspects.

What a nice group. Lucky you. And such a beautiful ending to your night, so elegant.

I think Cal and I need to become best friends...because my life would be easier right now if I didn't love chocolate so much!

BY and by, I envy your book group a bit. I've been thinking lately about the fact that perhaps I need one too.

That puts my lemon tarts to shame! {what we ate at our book club meeting on Tuesday night} We read Water for Elephants. Loved it. Our club has only been meeting since July...

your book club knows how to entertain !
i've never heard of any book club locally here. what does it consist in ? do you all have the same book list and then discuss the books ?
i'm with Cal for chocolate cakes (i bake them for family & guests but don't eat them) but i love chocolate (candies, bars, hot cocoa...)

Such beautiful colors and warmth in these photos. And a book club to celebrate in this way has to be a great one!
