This is the last week for American Pastorale. I have to admit that I’m a little behind. As we have discussed in previous meetings, the writing is excellent but the pacing is kind of slow. Does anyone have any suggestions for a meeting place? I’m sort of having coffeehouse block.
The next thing we need to discuss is the upcoming book. We have Emma and the Historian to read, post your vote.
A couple of weeks ago Misc, Ins, and myself discussed the possibility of reading one more book from our queue and then saving the last book for later in order to try another “style” of book club. After watching The Jane Austen Book Club I thought it might be kind of cool to read several (or all) books by one author and compare the styles of his/her work. One suggestion was Charles Dickens, others were mentioned but I can’t remember. Anyway begin to think of an author that you might enjoy reading and we will discuss at the next couple of meetings.
See you…wherever 🙂
