Time for our book group newsletter:
A) Our official May discussion is happening this Sunday at 3 PM.
We will be discussing "Brideshead Revisited? by Evelyn Waugh. We are meeting at the downtown Borders location in the caf? on the second floor. There is no coffee tasting this time, so don?t accidentally show up early. Remember that parking in the structures is free on Sunday?yay!
B) Our July selection poll is closing Sunday at 12 noon,
and I will be announcing our chosen book. Right now, ?The Thousand and One Nights? is in the lead, but it?s a really close race. Get your vote in while you still can!
C) Our August selection poll is now open
. Get on our group page and vote in our July poll. The winner will be announced right before the June discussion of ?Cider House Rules?. You may notice that there is a theme to this month?s selections: the adventure novel.
Most of these are short and sweet?we wouldn?t want to read something heavy just before ?Ulysses? anyhow. Let me know how you like themed polls; it may be something worth doing for all future polls to ensure a variety of reading selections for our group. Here are this month?s choices: ?Kidnapped? by RL Stevenson
?The Island of Dr. Moreau? by HG Wells
?Around the World in 80 Days? by Jules Verne
?Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland? & ?Through the Looking Glass? by Lewis Caroll
?King Solomon?s Mines? by H Rider Haggard
?Robinson Crusoe? by Daniel Defoe
