The Satanic Verses

November selection:
We chose it in honor of Banned Book Week (September 25−October 2, 2010).

Funniest thing to happen at Catcher in the Rye meeting: charming host B claimed she had "plenty of wine - two bottles." Oh, boy, did we laugh about that!

2 Year Review

We recently celebrated the 2 year anniversary of Book Club! Isn't that exciting? I made a poll to see which books and which discussions folks enjoyed the most. (you'll prob. need to click on the images to enlarge and read.) As you can see, loving the book is not a prerequisite for loving the discussion.

Generation A

Had a really fun book club for Generation A - most folks agreed the book was quite enjoyable to read if not very challenging. Here's the quote the apparently inspired the title:
"Now you young twerps want a new name for your generation? Probably not, you just want jobs, right? Well, the media do us all such tremendous favors when they call you Generation X, right? Two clicks from the very end of the alphabet. I hereby declare you Generation A, as much at the beginning of a series of astonishing triumphs and failures as Adam and Eve were so long ago."
—Kurt Vonnegut

Finally took some pictures of the conversation - here are a few cute pics!

We choose two books to read next. First a book by Haitian author Edwidge Danticat: Breath, Eyes, Memory. BTW, there's an article by Danticat in the New Yorker about the earthquake that is really beautiful. And the following month we have another non-fiction selection: Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town
