Family Book Club

A few years ago my dad came up with the idea of all of the adults in the family reading the same book and then sitting down at some point when we were all together during the holidays and discussing having our own mini book club.

That year he suggested The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. There were five of us that Thanksgiving and only three of us read the book, but it was a fun discussion that led to other discussions throughout the holidays and after.

This year my mom chose the book and she decided to go with fiction -- Karin Slaughter's most recent book, Unseen. My mom and I have a slight advantage because we've both already read this book.

Our discussion is planned to take place in the lull between Christmas and New Years. We also plan to have another discussion about Unseen with another friend who is coming to town after Christmas.

The rules are simple, read the book if you want, you can participate in the discussion either way.

The Family Book Club is a fun and easy way to add a little bookishness to the holidays.
