Yesterday, I held the first, little trial run of Blook Club.
We’d all cringed, laughed, guffawed
and crossed our legs at the book.
As it was the first Blook Club, and the first time
meeting for some of us, I thought it might be
safer to start talking about the fashion chapter.
But from there (with the help of some booze)
we covered life, housework, vulvas
and everything inbetween.
The word ‘junk’ has also been changed
irrevocably, thanks to Lauren!
Must remember not to tell
Americans how much I love junk!
We laughed. We ranted. We probably
made for entertaining eavesdropping!
If you haven’t read How to be a Woman, do.
Though be warned, it’ll make want to read out loud
all the rude, brilliant, immensely quotable sections
to complete strangers on trains.
My husband was my audience.
He just kept asking, ‘what are you reading?’
followed by ‘who suggested this book?’
Yup, that would be me.
I stopped reading it out loud
when I came to the childbirth chapters.
Instead, I may have had the following
expression on my face…
So, the next Blook Club…
I wanted to choose something very different
to How To Be A Woman and so I choose something
that I bought as part of my 3 for 2 when I got HTBAW!
(Yup, an intellectual choosing process here!)
To read: When God Was A Rabbit
To read by: 16th October
(UPDATE: I’ve now moved the ‘about’ Blook Club details
to its own page… just click the button at the top right.)
Oh, and the first rule of Blook Club…
to have fun. (And read a book.)
(And maybe eat some cake.)
If you’d like to join, just leave a comment here
or email and I’ll put you on the list.
Expect to hear from me soon.
There’s also quite a few people asking
about reading along online. If you’re
doing that, you can use #blookclub
on twitter, leave a comment here if you fancy
or write you own post and I’ll link to it here.
Happy Monday everyone xx
