^^^ Downtown Charleston, September 2013 ^^^

So I joined a book club... kind of. 

The book club meetings are on Thursday nights while I'm teaching photography courses so I don't technically go. But I'm reading the books so that counts as being a member right? Sure. 

Our first book was -- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society -- and while with the first glance at the outside cover I performed an over the top eye roll. I really did enjoy the book. 

There were a lot of characters and so I was constantly paging back and forth but in all honestly I give it atleast a 7 out of 10 -- maybe higher -- and so maybe you want to read it too. 

On top of just my general notion that I think reading can offer continuous education -- what was that doozy of a sentence -- I was amazed at how much better I rested after reading before bed instead of that constant streaming of HIMYM replays. 

So maybe I'm on to something...
