Book Club: The Sweet Life in Paris by David Lebovitz

I recently came across a "foodie" book club in a another state--the thing being, I don't live in the south and can't make it to the meetings. So what do you think? Should we give a book club a try right here? I'm not suggesting we pick up a cookbook and read it cover to cover (on second thought, let's not rule that out!)
If you like to cook, think morning trips to the farmers market are just as fun as an afternoon run to the library, that smelling fresh nectarines in the fruit aisle is akin to paradise--then hopefully you'll feel at home with a friendly group of like-minded readers and a comfortable blend of "food meets literature."
