Last week I had the pleasure of attending a “Fierce But Fluffy” Book Group meeting in Bermuda. This is a group that loves to read cozy mysteries and romantic mysteries, and for May they read Buried in a Book. The group invited Lucy Arlington to join them for their book discussion. We met at the Daylesford Bar in the Bermuda Musical and Dramatics Society. (If you noticed the word “Bar” in the location, you can imagine how the meeting might have proceeded.)
I had such fun with this group of readers, who spent perhaps forty-five minutes discussing the book and asking me questions about my experience with co-authoring. The rest of the evening, we indulged in gossip, beverages and snacks. And oh, what delicious snacks. It was a feast that complimented my two glasses of wine–cheese, crackers, grapes, brownies, cookies, nacho chips…I think that reading a book is just an excuse for these friends to get together and party.
It was a wonderful evening. Thank you, Fierce But Fluffy readers. Not only are you fierce and fluffy; you are also fabulous! (I hope I haven’t broken your first two rules on the book club t-shirt by writing about it!)
What is it about alcohol, snacks and books that they go together so well?
