UPDATE: Yummertime Book Club will be posted on the first day of every month, instead of the last Friday. It came to us (and by us, we mean to say, it came to Brock) in a dream. Oprah was all like, screaming, “Why are you posting the Yummertime Book Club selections for the month at the end of the month, you monkey?!” And she was right. So, yeah. First day of every month. March got the axe, so, without further ado… April:

Posit for a second, the idea that reading a book is more enjoyable than eating peanut butter out of the jar while watching Scandal. Or The Bachelor. Or How To Get Away With Murder. Or Broad City. Or Looking. Or Game of Thrones. Or Girls. Or House Hunters International.

Okay. We love TV so much. So much. SO MUCH.

But, we really do love to read too. We do. We promise. We just think everyone needs to learn how to be inspired by books again. Here. That’s how we envision our YouTube videos for Yummertime Book Club. Tons of picture books. Of kittens. Tons of kittens. Yes.

Now, regarding books with words. We’re reading two.

For this installment of Yummertime Book Club (would you wear a YBC tee if we sent one to you?), we’re reading Nice Is Just A Place In France, by The Betches, chosen and recommended to us by Sam Faubert. We’re also reading Wild, by Cheryl Strayed, because we have not seen the movie yet (SEE we’re already choosing books over TV!).

Basically, what these choices say about us: 1) we love women, 2) we love women who write, 3) we appreciate the author pseudonym, “The Betches,” and 4) we dream about being bold and trekking across multiple states, but would rather read about it while cuddling our kitten, Thomas, in bed and while eating the 5lb bag of gummi bears we just had delivered today.


Now, in the grand tradition of 140 characters or less, our reviews of last month’s books!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Truman Capote (Chris’s choice):
It had me at “only 150 pages?!?” All about a more fascinating, more complex girl than any Girls character hopes to be. Perf for sassy boys, girls.


Tinkers, Paul Harding (Brock’s choice):
You know when you’re reading a book and you just can’t put it down? This was the exact opposite; I couldn’t pick it up 😛

    This post is inspiring me to read and not just watch TV.

    Also I’d totally rock a YBC tee…

    Will definitely love a YBC tee!
    Brilliant idea to review less than 140 characters max. 😉

    I cried uncontrollably in public while reading Wild. So if you’re emotional like me, get ready for it.
