Last night I had my very first book club meeting with two of my friends(we read and discussed The Night Circus), which went amazingly and made me glad we decided to start one. However, it got me thinking about why, for being such an avid reader, I’ve never been a part of a book club before.
I realized that while it partly had to do with timing, it was mostly because of my tendency to keep my hobbies to myself. Don’t get me wrong, I love to talk about books (especially those ones you just can't. put. down.), but I always hesitated to commit to a book club.
I also thought about how I’m not much of a group shopper (unless it’s a purely social experience). If I’m on a mission to buy something, I prefer to shop alone. While I love spending time with friends and family, it's clear that I also need significant time and space on my own to recharge my batteries, and my hobbies tend to reflect that need.
I wouldn't change this about myself (for one thing, it's probably why I like blogging so much), but I am thankful for friends that help me step outside my little world every once in a while.
