What book have you read recently?

I am currently reading Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie

Who is your favorite book or author?

Donna Tart (Secret History) is probably my favourite novel, also enjoy reading Margaret Atwood. I have also started to read more Charles Dickens.

What books would you like to see us read at Book Club?

I enjoy reading a mixture of classics as well as new books. I don't really enjoy 'formulaic chick lit', instead preferring books that make me think, teach me something new, set in a different culture. I do like a good plot though! It would be good to explore books I would not normally select.

What are the group's requirements regarding RSVPs? No Shows? (Hint: Click "Pages.")

If you say you are going to attend - then you should attend. If youI RSVP "YES" but do not show up more than twice without letting anyone know, I may be asked to leave the group.

Look through some of our past & future book club meetings... What one book have you read, or would most like to read? Why?

I would be interested to read The Unconsoled, I have read a nuber of books by Ishiguro including Remains of the Day and more recently A Pale View of Hills. Both books seem to focus on loss, regret and inaction any yet are set in entirly different places and times. I love his stye of writing which is so engrossing and yet also leaves so very much unsaid and unresolved for the reader to make their own conclusions.

Introduction
