Book Clubs

“We read to know we’re not alone.” – William Nicholson

“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks’ past, the advice and menus of cooks’ present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.” – Laurie Colwin

Through reading carefully chosen books, this group is for a community of women joined together to discover self-compassion, self-worth, learn about food prepared by various cultures, and nurture our bodies with delicious food prepared in the comfort of our home. This is book club that meets virtually and in person. We choose books to help you restore your mind, body, and soul. The importance of a book club focused on self-love cannot be understated. Many people are going through challenging and upsetting moments that aren’t shared. Through reading and cooking from carefully chosen books, my hope is that you will realize you are not alone in your situation, and that we are more alike than different. You will read books that will assist in understanding, validating, and processing how you feel.

Every two months, we will read one book focused on self-love, self-worth, or self-compassion, and we will read and cook recipes from one cookbook.  


Are you a woman interested in joining a book club but want to choose your own book? Do you stay away from book clubs because you aren't interested in homework assignments, deadlines, or discussions? If you answered yes to either, or both of these questions, then The Spa in Me Silent Book Club - Cedar Park Chapter is for you because there are no assigned books. This book club is a chapter of The Silent Book Club at https://silentbook.club/ . We meet monthly, and you choose your own personal book to read during the silent reading time. We socialize for the first thirty minutes, and, if you choose, share about the book you are reading, read silently for one hour, and then socialize for the last thirty minutes. That's it! No pressure whatsoever. Consider this as your time to indulge in self care by simply reading and relaxing.
