Post Hello from NY!
Hello! My name is Laura and I am excited to join this virtual book club! I am from Syracuse, NY but now live in the Hudson Valley. I enjoy a wide variety of books, if it is well written and interesting I will read it regardless of genre. I work two jobs, one in the solar industry and one at a whiskey distillery and am passionate about both. I also love animals, and personally have two guinea pigs. I found this website via a NY times article about online book clubs.

A few years ago, I organized a book club among a group of friends where we would choose a book and get together to discuss it. This in person club worked out well for several months, but fell apart as people moved, so I moved it to a Facebook group. While it is still technically active what generally ends up happening is we democratically select a book, and a month after choosing I will ask who is ready to discuss and I end up very lucky if one other person has read the book. While I plan on maintaining that book club I would love to also participate in an active club where there are discussions happening around every book.

I feel that I get so much more out of my reading experience if I have others to discuss it with! I’m looking forward to getting to know you all!
