Well, it might not be cold yet here in Florida, but we know it’s on the way. January is typically our coldest month. The time will zoom by with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and our coldest months will be upon us. While our winter is not cold by some state’s standards, it is cold for those of us who live here and are acclimated to the mild Florida weather. When it’s cold outside, we may find that we have fewer things to do to keep us occupied. We aren’t swimming or going to the beach. It’s even the lowest attendance at the amusement parks during our winter months. So, what might we do to pass the time until our warm temperatures return?
We thought it would be a fun idea to tell you about some local book clubs. Some of you may be ready to stop reading this blog right now, but don’t! While you may not be personally interested in a book club, you might know somebody who would enjoy it. So, take a couple minutes to look over the list we are providing and even if you don’t want to join a book club, pass on the information to that voracious reader in your life!
