Heeeeeyyyyyy y’all!!!! First things first, I am beyond stoked for the super positive response you guys have all given me on the site so far! awwwwwzzzzz yeah!! It means a bunch because this is the most personal thing I have ever put out to the world, aside from that time I sold my old worn socks to a vending machine in Japan because times were tough in college*.
So from all of your amazingly awesome responses right here on prettyfunnyblonde.com (oh wait, I don’t have to plug my site on my own site. Great. Got it.) and also on twitter and instagram…I feel like overall you guys are in for the book club idea. Should we name our club? Are we too cool to name our club? Is it an underground club that we only acknowledge through hand gestures, baseball plays and head nods? Seem complex and Bond Girl-y. But if you have name suggestions for our new founded book club ** then please let me know in the comments section belowwwwwww.
Right now I’m on a plane. Hovering in space, ordering cocktails n shiz, en route home, getting bloated and dry skinned from this metallic fart tube of air travel…..and I cracked open a new book….GASP! And I read the prologue, and very Michelle Tanner thought HOW RUDE!! We talked about this book club, for the majority I feel like you guys are into this so lets just band together and do this damn thing. I’ve picked our book. Our literary novel of choice is written by one Patti Smith, entitled ‘M Train’. I bought this about a week ago and literally about 5 minutes ago just started it. I think this is a great place for us to begin this book club. I’ve read her previous memoir Just Kids, and its the bees knees. I’ve read amazing things about this book. She’s such a bad ass icon, grandmother of punk music, and an old wallflower and representation of all things New York. I have such a strong connection to New York. It’s the first US city I’ve ever lived in, it was such a seamless transition from Toronto into NY, and reading about the old clubs, bars and venues and pulse of the city always gives me a little kick in the ass. Who better to hear it from then Patti Smith, who did way cooler things than any of us could ever dream!
To be honest I have no idea how a book club works. I googled it, read a paragraph of how it works and figured we could handle it. How long does it take? What do we talk about? I dunno. But we’ll figure it out. We’re no dumb dumbs. Reading is great. It’s for real the one thing I really try to project onto other people. And something my mom pushed hard on my brother and me. Reading has always been a novelty free time thing to do for me. So without further ado…welcome to our book club.
Let’s take 3 weeks and come back here and have a nice little chat.
*That never happened, weirdo. Also I never went to college. Double burn!! (Okay the college burn is on me, please see: Limited vocabulary, math skills stunted at long division, and I don’t understand how taxes work)
