Barely a Book Club

Teetering on the edge of a normal book club

Middlesex: Book 1 of 2009 January 20, 2009

Filed under: 1,Books read in 2009 — antof9 @ 11:06 am

OK — hopefully we’ve all gotten a chance to actually buy or check out the book, so let’s make it official and assign an amount to be read by this Saturday’s meeting. The author has obligingly divided the book into sections, so let’s read through “Book One”, which ends at page 76 if you have the trade paperback edition.

Let’s meet at House of Commons again, unless someone really wants to meet elsewhere. I’m happy to give them our business if everyone else is 🙂

We’ll meet at our normal 10:30 unless the Inspector is volunteering. Then we’ll meet at 10:00 (but don’t come early, because the tea shop doesn’t open until 10!). Inspector, please let us know in the comments.


Opening 2009: Reading List January 12, 2009

Filed under: 1 — antof9 @ 10:15 pm

Here’s our list of books for the first part of the year:
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
What is the What?
Great Expectations or Bleak House (we can vote when we get there)

Any preferences on where to meet? I thought I had a copy of Middlesex on hand, but I don’t, so I’ll post shortly how far we should read to.

If you know anyone who wants to read one of these books with us, bring them along!
