One thing to know about our book club
Our book club's name is "Reading Between the WINES." WINES is an acronym for "Women Interested in Nonfiction ExcluSively." All of our selections are nonfiction, which provides very lively discussions.
We've been meeting since 2005 and have 12 members who all live in the same Aurora subdivision. We meet five times a year over dinner and an occasional glass of wine. We vote on our next selections from our book list, and someone volunteers to lead that discussion. Our actual book discussions usually last an hour and a half to two hours.
One of our most memorable meetings ...
... was in 2006. Our selection was "A Million Little Pieces" by James Frey. We had our meeting on the evening Larry King interviewed James Frey about fabricating parts of his story that he claimed were nonfiction.
We rate each book ...
... on a scale of one to five stars. Our highest-scoring books so far include "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand (4.91 stars), "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell (4.75 stars) and "Decision Points" by George W. Bush (4.6 stars).
Other books we loved

"Catherine the Great" by Robert K. Massie, and "Orange is the New Black" by Piper Kerman.
