We are a group of women who range in age from 33-47. We
come from all walks of life, we have different professions, different levels of
education and different backgrounds, families, and homes. Being different
is what makes our group so much fun. And what we have in common makes our
group amazing. We are all mothers, with children who range in age from
newborn to 21! We love to eat, which is why we take great care in planning
our menus each month. And mostly, we love to read, thus the title of our
webpage: "Mom's Reading". All of us have uttered these words to our
children at one time or another. When we're so engrossed in a book (or we
have to read it by book club that night at 7:00), and our children are vying for
our attention, we barely look up from our book and say, "In a minute, Mom's
to our Web site!
Thanks for visiting our site today! We are a group
of moms who come from all walks of life who just love to read. We

peruse our website; pick up some tips for
your book club; see what we're reading;
recommend a book to us; learn some new recipes;
get to know our members; or buy some
amazon.com. If you have any questions or comments, please use
guestbook. It will be fun to read your messages!
Our Next Book(s)
We had our first meeting on September 17, 2004. We had a
very slow start, which I think is pretty normal. We had 6
members at the time. We discussed Under the Tuscan Sun
by Frances Mayes. We had some pretty differing opinions on
this book, and that's when we knew this book club would be a lot
of fun. We all did agree though, that the Italian food we
feasted on was heavenly! The chefs among us went all out,
and it was then we decided to create menus that corresponded
with the book.
We met very randomly at the beginning.
It probably took about 4-5 books to really get going. If
you're starting a book club, click here
for some advice. From the original six members, four have
remained and we've added another six. Over the course of
the years, four members left for one reason or another and
sometimes new members were immediately added! We joke that
we need a wait list!
started meeting on a rotating schedule. One month it would
be a Thursday night. The next month, a Friday night, and
so on. But, we soon learned that this was confusing and we
all really preferred Friday nights. Many of our book club
meetings go to the wee hours of the morning. So, a weekend
night made more sense.
Now, we all truly love our book
club and the friends we have made. We consider ourselves
pretty lucky to be part of such an amazing group.
