    Hi sorry can't get there tonight due to being late with an assignment -down to the wire, due in tonight. Thankfully the last one. I read Housekeeping which I kind of enjoyed, took me a while to get into, and it seemed a bit dated in style, if that's possible. But when I did get into it I got involved with the story.

    If either gets voted on, could I cast absentee votes for the Frame and/or the Le Guin (don't want them to disappear from the list quite so soon).

    If 'We' by Zamyatin will grip your imagination I wanted to suggest another book of Soviet science fiction genre, Roadside Picnic by brothers Strugatsky. It is a very well known novelette that was unfortunately out of print in US for over thirty years that is only now available in Kindle edition.

    I have read an interview with Marilynne Robinson conducted by Paris Review. Here is the link http://www.theparisreview.org/interviews/5863/the-art-of-fiction-no-198-marilynne-robinson

    Now I am keen to read her 'Gilead', has anyone managed to read it already?

    Dear all, There has been a lot of suggestions for updating our reading list, all of which were diverse and interesting for future discussions. Cathy has kindly updated live document on our website, check it out before this meeting to make it easier to vote for books of your choice.

    Also, I have dug up a rather detailed list of discussion questions on ‘Housekeeping’. This book is considered to be among the best of American fiction and there are a lot of aspects that opinions can be voiced on.
