    I'm not saying this book the Goldfinch is addictive but I had cataract surgery on Monday and could not stop reading this book. I've been faithfully reading this book for over a week and still have about 200 pages to go. I think about this all the time I even dream about it it's mesmerizing and haunting and probably the best piece of fiction I have read in a long long time.

      I unfortunately didn't start the book soon enough to attend the meetup, (I had no idea it was almost 800 pages), but I finished it none-the-less because I was bewitched by it like Caroline was. I'm hoping that at a future meetup we procrastinating readers will have a chance to talk about it. It's my favorite of all the book club selections so far.

    Sorry I hit the send button before I was done. I'm very sorry I wasn't able to attend either of the review groups for this book I feel like I could have really benefited from everyone's input. If by chance there's time after next um group discussion for maize selection if we have a chance to talk about the Goldfinch, would really welcome that.

      Sure, Caroline! We can take a few minutes at the beginning of the next weekend meeting to talk about the Goldfinch. I loved the character of Boris in particular!

    My ILL never came in, so I finally bought the book two days ago. I know it's okay to not be finished with it, but I don't want any spoilers, so I'm going to miss this one. May's book is already in hand, so hopefully I'll see you for that one!
