Barely a Book Club

Teetering on the edge of a normal book club

Martin Chuzzlewhere? October 24, 2008

UPDATED – We will meet at Cafe Caliente at 10:30 am

Something must have happened to the site, because the following post I wrote on Tuesday didn’t go up. Sorry for that! I really did get things in on time 🙂

I still don’t have my copy of Martin Chuzzlewit…are there only like 10 copies floating around in this world. I need a little help from the lucky few that actually have the book. Can someone break it down and tell us a good stopping place? I can read it online, but I can’t tell how many “pages” things are because there isn’t a computer screen to page conversion chart. From what I can gather this book is kind of long (in the 900 neighborhood) so I don’t know how much we want to bite off each week. Let me know!

Also…there aren’t any Spark/Cliff Notes available but I’m going to try to compile some stuff via the internet.

As for this week…any suggestions for where to meet?


Dilemma… October 15, 2008

So, I don’t have Martin Chuzzlewit yet, and neither does Misc. Ant can’t read the font until the sun comes out and IL won’t make it on Saturday. Anyone up for postponing our meeting until next Saturday October 25th?

Sorry everyone. Last post I totally thought the Komen Race was on Saturday. Let’s meet on Saturday at 10:30 at the House of Commons to discuss our final thoughts on AToTC. At that time we can discuss movie night too!

Our next book is Martin Chuzzlewit.

See you on Saturday.
