Not loving Love in the Time of Cholera

I’m seriously considering quitting book group. I’ve not been into the past couple of books we’ve read and because of that I don’t read. I feel that I need to be reading the book group selection so I read nothing.

I’ve got a pile of books to read and want to just dive into those. Maybe I should just go to book group and pretend I read the book, but really have read others.

This time it’s Love in the Time of Cholera. It’s not that I don’t like it. The book is well written and could hold my interest if I wanted to read it. I just am not interested. Luckily the next book is going to be a book I’ve already read so I can concentrate on my pile.

Because we are not a strict book group (I know someone who kicks people out of her group if members don’t read the books) I won’t quit. I like the people and need an excuse to get away from the house with other women one night a month.

Ok then, that settled. Off to find the modern version of cliff notes on Love in the Time of Cholera.

  1. My book group is rather a trip. The host picks the book AND makes dinner for everyone. It’s a great social gathering, but it’s really more of a supper club, as it’s very hard to get people to talk about the book. Usually only a handful of people have actually finished it.

    We also have lots of interrupters in the groups—ie, people who just talk over each other constantly. I tend to shut down in situations like this.

    But I like the food and wine. And as a freelancer, it’s good for me to get out of the house.

    We’ve been on a bit of a hiatus, and I’ve loved just reading what I want to read. The new book has just been announced. Now I have to decide whether to go.

    I feel your pain.
