Sept 2022-The Authenticity Project

It’s been a while! A few months to be exact — Life caught up with me (Kimy) the organizer of our book club. Travel, estate sales, then more travel….. Europe to be exact! Glad to be back on track for the time being and on to book club meetings!

Our Sept book is The Authenticity Project by Clare Pooley. For author bio click HERE . Ms. Pooley sounds like she would be a great fit for our book club! Read her bio you’ll see! Our Sept meeting was held at Laura Lee’s lovely home. I always smile when entering your house. It’s so open and welcoming. We had a small group with much to catch up on! Our dear Carol who is also English took the Queen’s passing quite hard. We all mourn with the Royal Family. What an amazing and full life. Carol brought these fabulous English cookies and pudding. I could have eaten ALL the cookies – they were a mixture of soft cookie with an orange cream middle! Small group of Eileen, Laura Lee, Jules, Carol and myself. Our meetings are a combination of catch up, book club, and whatever path of conversations that takes on is quite magical.

Those who read the book did enjoy it. Book Club questions can be found HERE. We all discussed who our favorite characters were – mine was Julian. I had such a clear picture of him. And the twist at the end re: Mary! Oh my!!

What would you write about if you had the chance to add your story into the green notebook. I would write something along the lines of “Hi I’m Kimy. I’m a small business owner who is a complete workaholic. I own three Scottish Terriers named Pip, Cricket and Bumble. I’ve lived an interesting life to say the least. I adore travel and the thought of a new trip either by car, train or plane is always on my to do list. There’s so many wonderful things to see and do there doesn’t seem to be enough time! Even though I’m very social I’m also a mixture of an introvert meaning I work from a very quiet space. I found myself working from my bed surrounded by dogs during the pandemic. I seem to have kept this mode going to this very day. I’m up for a new right knee in a few months I’m nervous and excited all at the same time. Tired of the pain and inability to do a lot of physical things I want to do.” Something along those lines I think. What would you write?

I can’t believe it’s already September. I blinked and we are almost to the holiday season. Holy snap. Hope you’re reading something wonderful. I’m listening to the new Stephen King novel called Fairy Tale on Audible. Very good so far. Different for him…. can’t wait to see where it leads.

Happy trails to all and will see you next month for our October meeting. Cheers!

P.S. Today is Sept 11 — we will never forget!
