The First Rule Of ‘Book Club’: Don’t Talk About Books

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The new CBS reality show, Tuesday Night Book Club, focuses on a group of women in Scottsdale, Arizona, but it’s going to blow the lid off book clubs in general.

That’s because the dirty little secret about book clubs is that most of the conversation isn’t about books.

That basic fact is what inspired the show’s creator Jay Blumenfeld in the first place. He says the idea came about when his wife – a member of a book club herself – told him: “We don’t really talk about the book. We talk about you guys.”

Tuesday Night Book Club debuts on – when else? – Tuesday (Jun. 13) and it’s causing a bit of a schedule change for the members of the real-life book club who tell their stories on the show.

Book Club member Lynn Carahaly – who is being billed as “Lynn the Newlywed” – says the members will watch the first broadcast together, but the gals have switched their book club meetings to another night “for obvious reasons.”
