Origin of a Name

With the last name Couch and a first initial of A, I've always been A COUCH. It's also the natural place to sit and read a book. Hence... A Couch Readers!

When it came time to form the book club, the name was obvious for me. With the last name COUCH, my family never called ourselves Couch Potatoes when we sat around reading books. We were SOFA SPUDS!

After creating Sofa Spuds Book Club, my friends and former students wanted a book club. However, they didn't want to necessarily be part of a Google Meet with teenagers. That's how I formed Young @ Heart Book Club, for those adults who still love Young Adult books.
