Books & Coffee

gottaloveGOTTA love books and coffee! And together! Ugh, amazing. I’ve been loving getting up early in the morning to read and drink my coffee. Something about the morning air, a little chilly right now, but you can smell the spring coming!  I have to say it’s a lot easier to wake up in the morning when I had 8am call times in New York. It was snowing when I left, as we sat 40 min on the tarmac while they defrosted the plane. So it’s very nice to be back in sunny california!

As you know, I am part of a book club, and yes, while we do drink wine during these little get togethers, we still read the books! For the next meeting we have decided upon The Great Gatsby and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. The Great Gatsby of course to get ready for the much anticipated movie directed by Baz Luhrmann, and Edgar Sawtelle because I’ve had the book and hear it’s wonderful. Excited to be able to finally read it but also have people I can chat about it with.

edgarsawtelleOur last book club meeting was great! Our last book posted here, was good. Interesting and comedic, although, my expressions were more like the yellow pill shaped minions on Despicable Me with “wwwhhhaaatttt???” Everyone brought a contribution, like kale salad, veggie plate, fruit plate, wine, and to finish a lovely lemon tart! Next book club meet is at my place on April 1st and I’m really excited!

Hope everyone’s Monday is off to a good start and Tay and I have great posts for you this week!

Book Club!

Ironic really how you meet people, and how small this world really is. Sitting on the plane on my way to Texas for the holidays, I sit next to a charming couple doing the same.  They happen to be about my age, in the industry, one of their good friends is a good friend of mine from an acting class, and then to top it all off, they’re just genuinely awesome people. Talked the whole flight, and said our goodbyes promising to be in touch in the new year. However, not before Tiffany explained to me how much she wanted to start a book club, and here I was thinking no one would do that with me.  I realize how domesticated and bookworm I sound, but to be honest, I kinda like it. 🙂 So all in all, I invited Merrill, Steph, and a sweetheart I just met, Julz, to join in and everyone’s game!

Thanks to Tiffany’s first book choice, Hope, A Tragedy, we are reading a funny and quite amusing tale of a man who reluctantly climbs into his attic because he fears the tapping sound he hears is mice, when it turns out to be a very old Anne Frank. ???? Right?  Can’t wait to finish and talk about this one! Perhaps you will enjoy it too. Try it. Why not?
