Is it still going? I feel like I haven't seen a thread for it in ages.
I'd like to see it again...
Readin' takes up inturnet time, ya know.
I mean have you sent a letter for me to read yet? It would be super ace if I could get one while in this place so it will have been like officially home for me while I was here. (But NO PRESSURE.)
You should PM those kind of things, you know...
you're one of my favourites. You speak good. It'd be good to have you on board.
Could you recommend me a future bookclub book.
but I wasn't very good. I generally read five books at a time and only finish about two of them, if I'm lucky. I'm a lone wolf, free from clubs. However, I'd gladly suggest a book I've just finished reading, then I can still join in with the conversation. Or I could suggest another I want to read and we can see how I fare. What books have been read so far?
revolutionary road - YATES
the road - McCARTHY
the restraint of beasts - MILLS
cat's cradle - VONNEGUT
the remains of the day - ISHIGURO
a burnt-out case - GREENE
let the right one in - LINDQVIST
Do Pnin. I just finished that not too long ago and reckon I could read it again. Do it, do it, do it. Do it, do it, do it. Do it.
Needs to be easy to get hold of though. A burnt-out case proved to be a slippery fuck.
I've seen several copies in Waterstones and Borders before. You can probably pick it up in charity and second hand shops too, for those who stick rigidly to buying books from those locations.
I'll get back on it soon.
Thing is I was reading a big series of books over the last few weeks. None of which would have appealed.
I really fancy reading The Savage Detectives next. Again, not really a book clubby book.
I didn't think anyone would notice to be honest.
How are you with John Updike? I picked up Rabbit, Run the other day. Might do next month?
Check it, at least four entire people noticed. DiS book club is an internet phenomenon.
I've never read any Updike. But I happen to know that my dad has that book, and I will be visiting him next week, so I can definitely attain a copy, which gives it massive book club selection bonus points in my... book. Have you read any of his works before? Good club material?
