This year I promised myself that I would explore new things and that I did. At the beginning of the year I decided to join a book club, The Bougie Bookworm. I didn’t know what to expect but for me I wanted to use this opportunity to meet new people and network with people I may never meet in a different setting.

The Bougie Bookworm sends out an email every month on what book is currently being read. At the end of that month there is a book review where we go out and dine and give our feedback. Last month we read The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, it was such a good read and was definitely a book I would have never read before. For the book review we dined at Pops Italian and enjoyed good food and conversation.

If you have the free time think about joining a book club in your area or start one. It’s a fun yet free way to network. I’m already looking forward to the next book review.
