Because our drive for this book came from the Emmy nominations and wins for the HBO limited series of the same name, we decided that this month we would read the novel and binge watch the show as a way to debrief! One of our members pointed out an ironic quote from the book that relates to several bookworms – “It didn’t take Celeste long to realize that this was going to be the sort of book club where the book was secondary to the proceedings. She felt mild disappointment. She’d been looking forward to talking about the book. She’d even embarrassingly, prepared for book club…marking up a few pages with Post-it notes and writing a few pithy comments in the margins” (Moriarty 263). The funny part is, that is what happened haha. Beginning at 6pm, we knocked out 3.5 episodes (we met on a Tuesday and we are all avid This Is Us fans so we had to stop at 9pm!).

I am excited to welcome my dear friend, Michael, as a guest blogger for Incessant Bookworm this morning! Michael and I were colleagues for over 2 years and deepened our friendship over books.

With the start of a new season, I find myself in a place of reflection. Over the past year I have embarked upon a journey-to read more than I ever have. This wasn’t a journey I decided to start on January 1, 2017. Instead it’s one that has been slowly building over the past few years.

My journey to read the most I had ever in my life has taught me about the strength of communities and how books can connect you with people you didn’t think you’d start a friendship with.
