April Book Club

For April we will be reading "Good Omens" by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Description:

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

It is available from Amazon in all kinds of forms:

And the library has some copies of it:

    This was to be my first Geek Girls event and I sadly have to bow out. My husband is working late and no one is available to babysit. Next time indeed, though!!

    I'm here. I'm wearing a pink top and sitting on the super comfy couches in case you've never met me.

    Sorry everyone but I have to cancel. One of our kitties had 2 teeth pulled today and I need to stay home and watch over him. I hope you have a wonderful discussion!

    Everyone, we will be at Jake's on 6th again. It's in Hillcrest and there is street parking and some paid parking lots across the street too. Give yourself a little extra time to find parking.

    I haven't read the book yet, but if you need a place to meet- you can use my house in Normal Heights.

      Thanks for the offer Diane. I'll let you know if we need to do that. I should have a location by Saturday night.
