While there was expressed interest in the book, this was a poor showing for book club. I think a lot of it was due to the book having more of a textbook nature than many of the others we’ve read in the past. Even other highly informative books have had more story to them. It was also didn’t have an Audible version, so it was more difficult for many, including myself, to get through in a timely manner.
There were only two people who came to book club having read the book. Debby and Andrew were nice enough to call in and marginally participate, but since they hadn’t read the book some of the more specific examples had them tuning out. I can understand where people were coming from with the book choice, and the not reading it. I think I’ll avoid these styles of books from now on.
