Can It Be A Book Club If You Mostly Drink?

This is just an FYI post to let you all know that I am going to start a book club.  I'm going to do it in Austin, mostly with my friends, but I have little doubt that I'll be discussing the books here so I thought I'd give you all a chance to join in the fun.

I am so nice.

The first book is going to be The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. 

I've read the first twenty pages and I'm fascinated. The basic idea is that the author decided she wanted to be happier with her life.  She wanted to appreciate and enjoy her very ordinary, but fantastic life.  She's where I got the phrase "the days are long, but the years are short."  The book chronicles her twelve month journey to try to find happiness in her daily life.

So, if you want to join in then go get it and start reading.  I'll be talking about it and at some point there will be some sort of "formal" discussion....which might just be me telling you I'm done with the book, here are my thoughts, what are yours, now drink a bottle of wine and think about it. 

It's seriously intellectual around here. Brace yourself.
