Real Simple Online Book Club’s January 2013 Book: Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

The fun novel by Maria Semple is the January 2013 pick of Real Simple’s No-Obligation Book Club.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

Greetings, Bookies!


I’m Catherine Oddenino, and I lead business development for (when I’m not making ice cream). I am thrilled to not just announce the January book but also to be leading the first No-Obligation Book Club of 2013. What better way to kick off a new year than with a fun read like Where’d You Go, Bernadette, far and away your favorite of the four choices. The author also wrote for my all-time favorite sitcom, Arrested Development, so I was definitely pulling for this one to win.


Here’s the schedule I’d like us to follow together:


Parts 1 and 2 for Friday, January 4.

Parts 3 to 5 for Friday, January 11.

Parts 6 through the end for Friday, January 18.


Seattle is one of my top places to visit, so I’m excited to explore it more through this read. I’ll check back in with you all in 2013!
