Our first book club meeting was tonight. A book club in which reading the book is optional and the main goal is to get together, have some laughs and eat some food. Excellent. Its members are mostly people who went to UMass and people who are friends with people who went to UMass. The optional book to read for this month (yes, I read it) was The Nanny Diaries. It was fun. I look forward to next month’s reading and meeting.
