We are Pages & Pie
Have you heard? Yesterday our book club ‘Pages & Pie’ celebrated its 3rd anniversary! A milestone for us.
We are Pages & Pie, a book club or quartet that originates from 4 friends sharing a passion for books. We started our book club 3 years ago on a grim Sunday afternoon. We had been talking about it for quite some time, and that afternoon we decided to finally make the idea official. Pages & Pie was born. ‘Pages’ refers of course to the books we read, and ‘Pie’ refers to the fact we don’t function without food and always feel the need to introduce a glass of sparkling wine before every meet.
In our little book club we read a book every month, at least we try, and then join to discuss the book in depth along with many other topics. We pick a book each month out of a jam jar that has been with us since the beginnings. Every time one of us finds a book worth reading, we will write it on a white piece of paper and add it to the jar. Every meeting we pick a new title and set the deadline date. Now and then we link an activity to our book of the month as well.
In its origin our book club focused on the books we had read and our passion for storytelling, but since then it has evolved in something more and the need to see each other every month has become a necessity. A need to share ideas, passions, emotion, stories and a connection that transcends the club. It has transformed into a family, a clan of which we are all members. We celebrate Christmas together, we go on weekend trips to Disneyland, go ice skating, babysit each other’s children (only one for now) and keep each other up to date on every life change.
In short, we are Pages & Pie and we share a passion for books, life, love, but most of all for each other and our friendship. Thanks for 3 lovely years girls. <3
