"Stepping out of my comfort zone to read a different kind of book than I am accustomed to reading and meeting new people was really fun."
How I did it: At a holiday party I was listening to a fellow partier talk about the book club she attends. This was intriguing to me. So I googled "Book Clubs St. Louis". One of the first selections was through Meetup.com. Because it wasn't associated with a group having a specific interest, I thought that it would open up more possibilities for me. I was fortunate that the meeting was two weeks away, enabling me enough time to read the book, and that it was on a day I didn't have to work. So I took it as a touch of kismet and joined.
Lessons & tips: Even if there is no book club in your immediate area, I think if you connect with meetup.com, it is not hard to start one. Hmmm... talk about stepping outside your comfort zone.
Resources: Google and I think craigslist would be a good resource.
