Hi there, Bookies!

I’m Emily Schroeder and I work in business development for RealSimple.com. I will be your December book club leader, and I am very excited that The Partner Track won the poll (I always love a suspenseful thriller—the last time I was the moderator, we read Gone Girl.).

As Maura said, I am in my third trimester and due with our second child this winter (January 30, to be exact.) Since I am having a hard time sleeping these days (getting comfortable is nearly impossible), I welcome the late-night reading distraction. It sure does beat thinking about all the little things that I need to get done before baby #2 makes his or her debut!

Maybe some of you are having the same restless nights and/or need a break from this busy holiday season. Whatever the reason, let’s enjoy this distraction together! I know this is going to be a good one, and I can’t wait to get started.

Let’s go by this schedule:

Chapters 1 through 8: Friday, December 6

Chapters 9 through 17: Friday, December 13

Chapters 18 through 25: Friday, December 20

Looking forward to our discussions. Happy Thanksgiving eating and reading!
