I can’t go any further into this post without first THANKING ALL OF YOU. Yesterday was such a big day for me. First, I surpassed my highest number of views ever. Better yet, yesterday officially put me over 100 followers!! (Not including facebook/twitter.) This is a big milestone for me, and I appreciate each and every one of you. This little blog started out in January as a way for me to pass the time while I was at work not doing much. I now have a new, very busy job, but I decided I wanted to keep blogging because I LOVE IT. And I love all of you! I’ve got some neat things planned for the blog in the coming months, and yesterday has completely affirmed that I should keep doing this. I’ve also learned that you guys enjoy the bookish-but-not-necessarily-about-books posts, which tells me I need to keep diving into the book world more and more and telling you all what I find. So again, THANK YOU!!
As for book club last night, it was actually quite a bit of fun. Yes, mostly everyone there got the references thrown around the table about WoW, Battlestar Galactica, and various (insert witty word here)-Cons, which I did not, but I also have friends that discuss that stuff and I never know what they’re talking about either, haha. As much as I love sci-fi/fantasy books, I never really got into all the other stuff. It didn’t matter much to me though. We had some great intellectual conversation about World War Z, and I LOVED hearing other perspectives about the book. I originally thought it was just an okay book, but hearing their opinions gave me more respect for it. It was also fun to discuss the differences between the book and the movie. We pretty much decided they were two different entities, which is what I think most have said, and what Max Brooks said himself when I heard him speak. We also did a “book rec” period at the end, where everyone suggested books they just read/were reading. Guys, I think I might have to delve into the world of Steelheart sometime, lol. It was awesome to find so many Stephen King fans too, and we even chatted about Doctor Sleep for a minute or so, which is what I’m currently reading now. All in all, I really enjoyed it, and I look forward to going back next month to discuss Hounded by Kevin Hearne.
