One of my favourite parts of blogging is sharing the simple pleasures that I’ve stumbled across – from some new food obsessions and a fun way to make new friends, to cute clothes and dangerously good websites, here’s a snippet of what I’m loving this month.
1. Book Club
Nerd that I am, my idea of fun is sitting around talking to 15 other people about a book you’ve all just read. My love of books and propensity to push books on my friends has culminated in joining a book club at my favourite independent bookstore – Oscar & Friends Booksellers. So far we’ve read Swing Time and Hillbilly Elegy, and next up is The Animators.
I live approximately two minutes walk from the Oscar & Friends Double Bay store, and until last week worked approximately 10 minutes walk from the Surry Hills store, which has been dangerous for my bank balance but also made for some wonderfully relaxing lunchtime and Sunday morning strolls. Book Club is held on the first Monday of each month, there is wine and sometimes chocolate, robust book chat, and the best bunch of strangers I’ve met yet.
