I joined a book club!

It’s no secret by now that I love reading. I’ve blogged about books I’ve read and books I want to read through the years. And so when one of my long time blog friends, Joei posted about her being part of a book club, first thought to cross my mind: COOL!!!

Now I am part of the SBC – Secret Book Club. Every month, two members of the club gets to propose a BOM (Book of the Month) and then we schedule meet ups to talk about the books we’ve read. The only catch though is that most of them are from the South so meetings are in Alabang/BF Paranaque area. I’m from Makati and the only times I’ve been to Alabang were for a work meeting and I rode a car/cab to get there and back. Never commuted there before but I said yes anyway! Alabang adventure! Yessss!

My new found friends from SBC

I enjoyed my first book club meet up. It’s just so nice to meet people who share the same interest as you. Joining the club means two things for me. It’s opening myself to meeting new people – for instance I finally met Joei ( in white top) and Russ (with the stripe top) in person which is absolutely wonderful! They are my blog friends from way back when blogging was just like a personal diary only online and we’ve kept in touch through the years through social media too. Joining the club also means opening myself up to reading books that I normally wouldn’t read and discovering new books that I may end up liking.

Am really thrilled about being in a book club and I am looking forward to our next get togethers to meet the other members too!
