Real Simple's No Obligation Book Club

So today I went to the grocery store to get stuff for the foil pack taco chicken.... and I forgot to buy the taco seasoning. LOL That is me! We ended up not making anything so tomorrow will be taco chicken night. Yay.

Has anyone heard of the No Obligation Book Club run by Real Simple magazine? I just discovered this last month. Each month, they have a poll where you can vote on what book to read the following month. Then each week, whatever editor from the magazine who is in charge that month, will post a blog post about the book (chapters1 to 4, 5 to 8, etc) and then you can reply and read everyone' thoughts.

I have always wanted to be in a book club so I figured i mgiht as well join this one! March's book is Truth & Beauty: A Friendship by Ann Patchett.  This is what Real Sipmle has to say about it: Before she wrote Run, a club selection in 2008, Patchett penned this moving memoir of her deep friendship with the charismatic, difficult, and complicated writer Lucy Grealy, who died in 2002, only 39.

Sounds interesting. I just hope that the library hasa copy in stock. Is anyone else particiating in Real Simple's No Obligation Book Club
