This article, Fought Over Any Good Books Lately?, about book groups is worth a read.
We’re obviously waaaay too tame and polite. Three things that grabbed my attention:
- That people pay a facilitator to sort out their book group squabbles,
- One woman who left a group because she didn’t envision herself sitting around talking about a book — she thought some business networking would take place (!!)
- The IlluminaTea book group guidelines that included no therapy talk (fairynuff), no chitchat (hmm, getting a little strict) and no skipping meetings (eeek).
