Except maybe getting together with a group of like-minded people to share thoughts on some favorite books. One of the most relaxing ways to spend your "Me Time" is reading. Join a book club and meet friends that love reading just as much as you do! The Kingston Library has a book club just for adults that meets on the third Friday of every month. Vivi Hlavsa has volunteered as the library's book club coordinator for many years now. She says this informal group is great for any reader. "We welcome anybody who comes. We talk about the book we've all read that month and any good books we have been loving lately," says Hlavsa. "Good discussions can go for 2 hours!" As the leader of the group, Hlavsa says she insists that members don't just say that they liked or didnt like the book. "You may change your mind after hearing what others have to say," she assures. This free group is perfect for moms looking to socialize and read. "Everyone brings a light lunch and we eat together and have great conversations about literature." personal development An inside look at the Mets from local sports writer Matt Silverman If you loved baseball as a kid, relive the games, moves, and players of the hard-hitting team that won the 1986 World Series in Game Six — the Mets.
