I watched The Jane Austen Book Club with my mom, brother and sister-in-law over the holidays.  I put up a good front against the cuteness of it all, but I did end up ordering Sense and Sensibility from my book swap anyway.  At the end of the movie, the one male character in the movie mentions starting a Patrick O’Brian book club and the ladies ignore him.  I have to say that a Patrick O’Brian book club is a great idea.  I’m about to start reading the 7th book in the series and I can’t get enough.  Every meeting would be like, “woah, that Jack Aubrey kicks ass…”  We wouldn’t even have to be reading the same book, the conversation would still make sense.  Who’s in?
