Last lines from a book club

In case anyone was wondering what kind of book club I am in, I think the parting line from Melissa as we left her house last night at 11 pm about sums us up.

We actually talked about the book tonight! she exclaimed.

You wouldn't think that was such a rare occurance, being as we are a book club.

The truth is that while we read books every month, often when we six get together the book gets a little lost under the layers of conversation.

You know - weighty, important issues.

Or not.

But somewhere between that first glass of wine and that last chocolate cupcake, our four hour meeting doesn't always have time to properly discuss the very reason for our getting together in the first place!
