Book Review: No! I Don't Want to Join a Book Club

No! I Don't Want to Join a Book Club *Click here to request this book* No! I Don't Want to Join a Book Club: Diary of a Sixtieth Year, by Virginia Ironside
For anyone of the baby boomer age, beware the helpful friends trying to coax you into activities you don't like! No one wants a one-size-fits-all way to grow older gracefully, but particularly not Marie Sharp, who is happy as a retired art teacher, awaiting her first grandchild and finding a new romance for herself. But don't ask her to go bungee jumping, learn a new language or join a gym! She wants to make her own way, as she explains in this novelized diary, through the joy, grief and inevitable changes and challenges of growing older. The author is a journalist in London and has based this book on her own experiences. --Linda
