    Hi! I’m Jennifer and I’m the host of the Brooklyn, NY chapter of GBC. I grew up in Denver, CO and attended college in Tulsa, OK before moving back to Denver. I moved to Brooklyn in October 2016 to follow my dream of living in NYC. I am an accountant and I work for a non-profit education journalism organization as their Finance Manager. I love to read books of all kinds and I’m part of two book clubs in addition to GBC. Interests outside of reading include hockey (watching, not playing), Broadway shows, checking out museums, exploring various neighborhoods around New York, hiking (when I can get out of the city), and hanging out with my two cats. I’m looking forward to having a forum to talk books.

        Katie – I was going to ask who your team is, but it looks like you are a Blue Jackets fan. I’m a Devils fan, but love the game above all!

    Hi all! I’m Katie, and I’m a co-host in Columbus, OH. I grew up here and went to school at Seton Hall (in NJ) before moving back. I work in corporate communications, and love to read (I’m in four book clubs and always have a book with me at all times). Outside of reading, I’m a Blue Jackets season ticket holder and spend tons of time with friends and family. When my introvertedness kicks in, I camp out on the couch with a good book and cup of hot tea (fuzzy socks are a given).

    Hi! I’m Nicole from Denver, CO. I’ve always lived in Colorado although now I live in downtown Denver, which is really fun. I’m the Chief Operations Officer for a company called VEDO Corp; we do analysis of satellite information. The job requires that I travel a lot, which I enjoy. I love to read and participating in the book club helps to make sure that I’m stepping out of my routine to read books I may not have picked for myself. It also makes sure that I don’t forget about taking time for myself to read when my days get busy with work. I’m a big Denver Broncos fan and I also love going to traveling Broadway shows that come to Denver.

      Hello my name is Kaylenn.

      I am from Columbus Ohio I grew up here my whole life. I really enjoy reading in my spare time. Which if often, but sometimes slim. I actually found out about this book club through meetup which I joined because I mentor a foster child through my local children services, and that’s where the post most of their events. I’m thankful I stumbled across this book club because I have been wanting to join one for so long. I am excited to start the journey of being in a book club. I am getting the current book that’s being read “American war” and can’t wait to start it and chat about it I also bought my first ticket the meeting being held in Columbus which I look forward to meeting people. But will still be fairly early in the book. I can’t wait

    Hi! Jenni here from Houston, TX. I love our Houston chapter because we come from all over the place, and now call Houston home. As I don’t have a lot of time to read lately, I easily ended up in a rut, reading “fast reads” and books from all the same genre. Now I have an excuse to really get into a book that I probably wouldn’t otherwise even hear about. I’m very glad that I found this book club five months ago.

    Hi all, I’m Valerie, a book and word nerd with The Girly Book Club HQ, based out of Toronto! If I’m not hanging out on our social media accounts and creating fun blog content, I’m either chatting with our global hosts and members or working with our fearless GBC founder and leader, Erin, to bring you the best books to our roster! In my downtime, I’m reading or adventuring with pup (maybe even the two of them together?!)

    Hi all!

    My name is Catherine. I live in Humble, TX (about 15 minutes north of Houston). I am so excited that I found this book club late last year…and that there is a Houston chapter now! Hooray! I have always loved to read (I think I had over 100 Little Golden Books as a child, haha). The book club is so much fun. I have always loved fiction…but, I don’t always make time for it. Book club is a way to make sure that I do make time for reading fiction, make friends with ladies of all ages and walks of life in my city, and get out for a fun night! I am so thankful for this organization and I just see it constantly improving. Kudos to the founders and hosts of this organization! I have great appreciation and admiration for you all. <3

    I am also the biggest dog lover you’ve ever met. Be forewarned Houston ladies, I need that shirt that says, “Caution, I may start talking about my dogs at any minute.” haha.

        I live in Humble Texas and plan to attend the Houston Chapter in November for the first time. I am an avid reader, including audiobooks to and from work. I am excited to meet other women who enjoy books as much as I and to expand my reading horizons. I am originally from Ohio, lived in Delaware, then made Texas my home 10 years ago. Looking forward to the virtual and in person experience!

    Hi, I’m Jenny. I’m a lifelong reader, but this is my first book club. I joined to meet like-minded people when I moved to Los Angeles about two years ago. I’ve gotten to know and befriend several of the ladies from our club and look forward to the get-togethers each month.

    Outside of reading, I enjoy crafting, hiking, gardening, visiting museums and science centers. I always have a cup of coffee in hand and a crossword puzzle in progress. I’m a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to three boys, who dreams of one day moving back east and running a homestead.

    Hi ladies,

    Karin Perkins, here I’m from Texas but currently stay in San Diego Ca. I’m in the Navy working as an engineer and am one of only 6 females working on board my ship.I’m trying to get into reading more while being more sociable 🙂 When I’m not working, which is most the time, I’m working out, hanging at a coffee shop or hiking some where. When my crew rotates off ship I go back to school as well. Trying to get my BSN 🙂 Looking forward to having an excuse to read more books with you ladies.

    Hi there everyone

    Tosh here from Mississauga, Canada. I recently joined the GBC in June as I realized that I lost my passion for reading, I let life get in the way. I decided to join my first book club to meet new people that love reading, and also to bring the passion for reading back into my life. In my spare time I am a pen pal, I rather write and send letters in the mail then sending emails,trying new recipes and British Detective shows has taken over my life a wee bit these days, but have also been spending a fair bit of time with good books. Looking forward to meeting new friends here!

    Pne of my biggest passions In life is reading so I’ve decided to join a book club to help me (hopefully) make new friends with like minded people in my new home.
