Great book about Buddhism, tsunamis, bullying, old nuns, and Hello Kitty. Come discuss! Available at the library and at Riverby Books.

    Thanks for the responses, David and Anna! I'd prefer to avoid spoilers, so I'll see you at the next one :)

    Stacey and Rachel... We've certainly had folks come who haven't finished the book before, so you're most welcome. It's up to you whether you're up for hearing some spoilers. :-)

    I also have to change my RSVP to "No." I was late buying the book and am unfortunately only halfway through. I look forward to meeting you all next month!

    I'm on the fence about coming tonight because I have not finished the book. I'm about 1/3 or 1/2 of the way in and just have not been sucked in. Should I come tonight and give up on finishing the book since I'm not being sucked in? Or, does it get better?

      I think you should come!! You'll either hear something that makes you want to finish it, or hear something that makes you say "eh" and move on to reading something else.

    Won't be able to make it after all because of conflicting dinner plans, but hope you have a wonderful discussion!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
