About Us

Lisa & Annie

As a child, my family of 11 (meet 2 of my siblings) lived in a small 4 bedroom house.  I always appreciated the escape a book could give me. Later, as I focused on my education, followed by marriage, kids and career, sitting down and reading a book seemed like a luxury. It didn’t help that the minute I sat down, I fell asleep. For the first book club, I bought the book but did not even open it. As I sat there watching my sisters and friends as they laughed and were moved to tears, I felt myself being drawn deeper into the story. My childhood love of books was rekindled.   This site was born shortly thereafter.  We have so much fun planning our book club parties and wanted to share our ideas with our readers.

I grew up in a household where books were everywhere.  My father had bookshelves filled with the classics, science and history tomes and an always current set of encyclopedias.  But my earliest memories of books and learning to read come from my mother.  She read to my 8 siblings and I every single day and took us to the public library every 2 weeks.  She shared her childhood collection of books with us too.  I grew up fantasizing about solving mysteries (Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew).   Buttery Books gives me the chance to spend a little more time with a book I’ve finished but from which I am not quite ready to move on.  I also love to cook and have had so much fun tying food and recipes to well-loved books.
