Goodreads says:
In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

    I got a late start on reading the book. I am not anywhere near the end. It's good so far, so I will finish reading it.

    It looks like I won't be making it tonight, though it looks like many people haven't finished so maybe I'll get to have some lingering discussion about it next month! Have a good Meetup!

    I'm not going to make it tonight, after all. I haven't set sights on the book; work has consumed me this month. See you all next month!!
