I used to read a lot (about 15 books a year) but I've slowed down ever since going paperless... there are just too many distractions around the digital books. Hopefully joining this group will be the first step to get back on track.
I really try not to judge books by their cover, and I know the amount of marketing that goes into some covers to help move a book through the retail channel. I can't think of a single book I've bought just because of its cover. Sorry :). Putting that aside... well... The Windup Girl has a nice cover.
Hi again, Jorge-
Sorry I have lost touch with the group. Was not my intention. Am curious what is coming up because I would like to re-connect with you guys.
Any more plans to hit the Cider bar?
Not sure you remember me or not. The last time I was with the group was during the Roller Girls event at Key Arena back in February.
Anyway, am back in town and would like to meet you guys again some time soon. Am specifically interested if anyone is talking about going to the Cider Bar on Capitol Hill again.
How are you? I've been outta touch with you guys this spring. What's coming up with activities?
All great suggestions! I've picked up the non fiction one 4 or 5 times now at book stores so I just put that one too. I keep a running list on the discussion board by the way in case you haven't seen it.
We've read Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart, An Object of Beauty by Steve Martin, The Imperfectionsits by Tom Rachman, One Day by David Nicholls, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell (which no one finished but me), Light Boxes by Shane Jones, Personal Days by Ed Park, A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, and a side group is reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. We're open to pretty much anything but I like to keep it in fiction. Thanks for the list!
