I have been for the past three years and love it. The host picks the book and then has the meeting at her house. She makes snacks and has drinks and we talk about life and then about the book. We have a rating system 1-4. It is pretty informal, but I really like it.

No, I would love to join one though. I really don't know anyone around here that likes to read as much as I do! (we moved here a few yrs. ago) My mom and I swap books and I used to with dh's grandma, she liked to read as well.

I belong to a book club in my neighborhood, and it sounds much like the OP's. We meet monthly at the home of the person who recommended that month's book. She provides snacks and we have great discussions about the book that morph into therapeutic discussions about everything else in our lives . It's great fun, so if you can't find one start one up!

Maybe you could post a notice at the library or ask around with people you know. The book club I'm in got started when a couple of ladies in my neighborhood started asking women at church and in the neighborhood if they'd be interested. Two years ago we started out with abuot 25 women! Now we're down to the faithful dozen or so
