Countdown 3, 2, 1….

I cannot believe it is already the end of September with just a couple of days left to finish off my list.  I’m staying focused with the goal of crossing off my 27 Things although this month has been a little challenging to complete my list.

Last night, Friday evening, I was able to mark off #9, as the Unbook Club Book Club gathering was held at my house and it was a wonderful gathering of friends who enjoy books and conversation.  #9 entailed the planning and coordinating of the event which was not a single effort but because it is a somewhat informal gathering, it came together quite well.  I was tired at the end of the evening but I am very glad to have held the book gathering and will be planning another for February 2014.

There were a number of books traded last night including the following titles:  Water for Elephants, Cutting for Stone, Absolute Power, Mayflower, Frederick Douglass, Daughters Fortune, Book of Air and Shadows, Washington’s Secret War, The 5th Witness, A Reliable Wife, Suite Francoise, Sarah’s Key, The Last Man, and A Secret Kept.

We did drink a good bit of wine last night and maybe in February we can combine the book gathering with an informal wine tasting as well.
