    I'm not going to be able to make it this Saturday. I'll have to talk about the book with random people in the subway. Have a great time!

    I went to Forbidden Planet to buy Sailor Twain and they didn't have it; I was told it is out of print. Carmen, where did you find your copy?

      Mine's a gift. Mark has my copy, and he's done reading. You can coordinate with him and just borrow it.

    I haven't heard anything about these yet but am down to read whatever the group selects. Here are some of the books I've been meaning to read:
    The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
    American Lightning by Howard Blum
    In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson
    The Electric Michelangelo by Sarah Hall

    ...and a handful of books I've read and would love to discuss:
    The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
    Who Named the Knife by Linda Spalding
    The Blind Contessa's New Machine by Carey Wallace
    Dune by Frank Herbert
    The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope by Rhonda Riley

    I think we should save The Man Who Fell to Earth for when someone can host a screening of the film. With whisky, of course. But it is high time we read some science fiction.

    I'll vote for A Garden of Earthly Delights.

      Or a graphic novel!

      September 27, 2013

  • Bob S.

    The Bear by William Faulkner!
    I can't make Saturdays generally, but Sunday afternoons are usually good - would love to make it to an event one of these days!
