It’s all in your perspective. In reality book clubs help you to have the well-rounded and balanced life we all look for. You get:
10 meals a year YOU don’t have to cook
Who has time to cook? But if you had 6 people in your club and you met every month. That means you would only have to get the munchies together twice a year. And YOU get 10 nights where you don’t have to cook a thing! And on those one or two nights every so often when you get to entertain you get to do it like you always meant too. Haven’t you been wanting to try out that new recipe or try out that new restaurant that delivers?
Goal List Item #2: Spend less time in the kitchen.
Goal List Item #3: Try new recipes or dishes.
However many times you host your bookclub? You can get the house clean at least once or twice a year. You know you have been waiting till company was coming before you mopped. Well company is coming and man does the place look good afterwards!
Goal List Item #4: Keep the house cleaner.
We know you love your kids, but spending that much time with your kids is bound to drive anyone a little crazy at times. With a book club night scheduled you know you have one night a month for YOU and your adult sipping-wine-and–giggling-like-you were-in-college-again self! Plus since you know when it is every month you can prearrange plans with your spouse or a sitter. No last minute scrambling needed!
Goal List Item #5: Relax and catch up with friends without having to tie anyone’s shoe in the middle of the conversation.
Get more exercise
Hop on the treadmill and read while your walking. You’ll get through a few chapters before you know it. You feel refreshed , have cleared your mind of everyday things and maybe read something great. If you can’t read and exercise at the same time add on ten minutes to read while you cool down. Who knows, you may find yourself getting so into the book you don’t even realize you’ve been exercising for longer then you planned. Yeah, skinny butt jeans! Another bonus: is some peace and quiet to yourself. Ahh!
Goal List Item #6: Get more exercise.
Unwind and forget about the to-do list
When do your read it? How about 10 or so pages a night. Just enough before you wake up with the light still on and the book has fallen on the floor.
Goal List Item #7: Get a better night of sleep.
Expand your Horizons
In Book Club you often get a book you would never choose. You hate the characters or you love the characters. You agree or you disagree. You laugh, maybe cry, or maybe your thoughts drift off and you read a sentence over and over. Either way, “Wow what a world that just got opened up to you!”
Goal List Item #8: Learn about new and different things.
Take a load off
How do I keep everything straight with all the things going on in a day much less a month? I forgot who’s hosting and/or the name of the book? Was I supposed to bring something for someone? What’s do they live? I forgot to buy my book…don’t have tome to go to store or I have to pick the book this month. Ah….BookBundlz has all of our club info.
Goal List Item #9: Get more organized.
And low and behold being in a book club = a well balanced life.
