my book club met last night to discuss the monuments men at joy burger. the city view from the window seat in the corner does it every time.
this one was a bit of a struggle for us. we all agreed that we enjoyed the subject matter, but the book reads like a textbook so we had a hard time sticking with it. even so, i am glad we chose it, because i previously had no idea of the incredible work done to preserve art and culture during the second world war—and our world today is richer for it.
i still enjoy our monthly book club so. we've been at it for a whole year now and i've read twelve books i have really enjoyed, but might not have chosen for myself otherwise. it feels good to step outside my comfort zone. plus, it's such a treat to explore common interests with my girlfriends and draw closer to them through these conversations.
next up: agatha christie!
