Last night was the monthly meet-up (via Ventrillo) of my book club, Books, Booze & Bajingos. Here is the run down.
This month’s book was My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland.
Laura and Jessie didn’t make it, and I was the only drinker last night. Everyone, including myself, was surprised that I would pick a zombie book. I hate zombies. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned that before, but I do. They scare me. A lot.
However, this seems to have been a huge hit with the book club. All those who were there really loved it.
One of my favorite quotes from last night: “I’m so glad she got a boyfriend with a steady source of brains, because every time she would get low on brains it would stress me out so bad.” -Annie
