Book Club!

 
Maddie and I joined a Mother/Daughter  Book Club and it has been the best thing for her and I. We have been furiously reading the Mysterious Benedict Society every night together and have really enjoyed it a lot! It was so fun to go tonight and hear these young girls talk about what they thought of the books and the characters. They are a lively bunch, that's for sure!
It brings back so many memories for me of when I was young - the joke was when no one could find me I was locked up in my bathroom reading a book.
I really hope Maddie gains the same kind of love for reading that I have always had!

By the way - what a sweet surprise on my doorstep from an equally sweet friend - thanks Annie!

How fun! I think if I joined a book group with Ethan all we would read would be Goosebump books....no thanks!

I LOVE this idea! When my girls get older I am definitely going to start one if there isn't one. What fun for you and your girls!

I love that mother/daughter book club idea. I've never heard of that. Maybe that would have helped me! My mom is such an avid reader. My girls are too. I love that you ar so close to your daughters and this will make you even tighter. So fun!
