I want to apologize - the group agreed to choose only books which were about 350 pages or less. The Book Thief is over 500 pages (although I'm finding it to be an easy read).
As I am not and never will be a high school English teacher, just read it, enjoy it and come to our next meeting. If you don't finish it by then - or don't want to finish it by then - it won't matter. I promise the discussion won't focus on the last 10 pages!
So again, I apologize for this oversight and assure you we'll take this into account when selecting future books.
The Cambridge Book Club is based in Cambridge MA and is unique in alternating fiction and non-fiction reads. Reading selections are based on member suggestions and final member vote. We've been going strong for 6 years and we look forward to reading together and discussing the books we read in engaging ways! All readers, all ages are welcome!
As of May 2015 CBC has adopted the Literature and Libations (L&L) group / thread. Please read the discussion board to learn more about L&L and feel free to come to those meetings as well!
