Maybe it was the book tour that got us reading more, or maybe it’s just that we’re trying to binge on Netflix less, but either way everyone at the studio is on a reading kick at the moment. And based on the comments we’ve been getting on some of our book reviews it sounds like a lot of you are doing the same!
We’ve thought about starting a book club (would you guys join one if we did?), and then we met Delphine Gesquiere who started a book club in her neighborhood—Greenpoint, Brooklyn—called Le Bouquineuses de Greenpoint. Delphine, a Parisian, formed the group over a year ago with some of the mother’s from her children’s French school.
