I'm so excited!  I just joined my first ever Book Club.  I've been wanting to join one for ages but never found one that seemed to be what I was looking for.

They have already met one time so I will be the new gal but I don't think I'll feel strange at all.  They all seem like super nice women.

The book we are reading is The Help.  I just got back from buying it at Target and plan to get started on it tonight or tomorrow.

I had seen previews of the movie that is coming out in a few months and thought the story sounded very good.  However, I never even thought to read the book first.  In fact, I didn't even know it was a book.

I'm not the type to read a book after I've seen the movie.  I figure I already know the ending so why bother.  But, I do like to read the book first.  Even though I know the ending I like to see how they bring it to life on the big screen. 

I used to love to read.  But, I got out of the habit and for some reason have not picked up a book in ages so this is a good way to get back to reading.

Have you read this book?  If so, did you like it?  Don't give anything away though :)

I read this book and I really liked it. I would also recommend Dry Grass in August.
