When Chloe is dumped by her fiance the night before her wedding via text message, she is devastated. Her book club friends are there for her as she attempts to move on with her life. Their book club leader has them try new things that are related to the books they are reading, including going to Paris. Chloe has always played it safe and trying new things and being adventurous is not her style. Stretching herself, she moves out of her comfort zone and is able to grow as a person.
"How do you explain to a nonreader that books aren't just things but treasured friends? Companions?"
"Life's too short to waste on books I don't like."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - "A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul."
