Long, long ago, just a couple of weeks into Donald Trump’s presidency, Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen offered some hope for Americans: they announced that they were forming a book club, warming everyone’s hearts with the delightful prospect of observing the Kardashians engage in some hard-hitting literary discourse, no doubt accompanied by Teigen’s hilarious tweets.

The club was of course always going to be exclusive—sadly, we can’t all cozy up on the couch with Teigen and the Kardashians. Though from the start, the pair used their platforms to make it seem just a bit accessible. Kim, for one, told her millions of followers what it was like to speak to the author of the book club’s first pick, Embraced by the Light by Betty J. Eadie, a ’90s bestseller about the author’s near-death experience. Here’s a never-before-seen footage of their book club that Kim Kardashian posted on her official app!
