Welcome to Gail Cornwall’s virtual mommy book club, and by “mommy” I mean current, former, or future caregiver, and by “book club” I mean I’ll post my reviews and others should feel free to comment.
I’m a stay-at-home mom of three caught up in a perfect storm of loving to read, write, judge, advise, and listen to the “sound” of my own voice. But I’m one of those type-A people who also genuinely appreciates feedback, push back, and holla back, and I regularly change my opinions based upon new information and perspective. I made several attempts at starting and joining mommy book clubs, both standard affairs and email variations, but found little success creating a real discussion group. Either the third mode’s a charm, or I’ll just have to be satisfied with the definition of “club” most descriptive of my early tween endeavors (picture me reading TigerBeat alone in a club house so secret that only one person and her three younger brothers ever gained access).
