It’s that time again. It is APW book club weekend! In case you missed it, we’re reading For Better: The Science of a Good Marriage, by Tara Parker-Pope. I need to hustle up and finish it (and I bet you do to), but y’all? It is good. I’m halfway through, and I’ve learned a lot (mostly things we’re doing right, or ways that our relationship is a little different from average). I even made David take some quizzes while we were on vacation in Mexico, poor thing.
Most meetups are happening all over the world on Saturday June 4th, 1pm. Thanks to our long-suffering assistant editor Lauren, we have an update for you on book club locations. Please click the above image (twice!) to see it nice and big, and see exactly where your local meetup is being held. If you have any questions go to Facebook for more information and find your cities meet-up thread (San Francisco is having one, they are just still searching for a location). And side-note… can we talk about how crazy it is that we have so many book clubs all over the country? It sort of boggles me. Also, I pretty pissed that I won’t be attending the meetups in Edinburgh or London or New York City. (Though I swear I’ll make it one day.)
Now! Just like always, we’re going to crowd source some book club questions to kick off discussion and break the ice. If any of you have already read or are currently reading For Better: The Science of a Good Marriage and have suggested questions, throw them out in the comment area. Just questions though, no discussion! I’ll post a list of questions tomorrow afternoon, and we’ll follow up next week with lots of online discussion for those of you who can’t make it to the book clubs.
As for the rest of you, get reading! And after the book club, please consider posting pictures in APW’s Flickr pool, and send me notes on what happens. I’m out of town where there is no meetup, so I need notes! I need tweets! I need to follow along! And I swear to you, I never get tired of seeing your faces, and cows, and sex club shopping trips, and sparkles.
