What is your favorite book?

I can narrow it down to these: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell; The Egyptologist by Arthur Phillips; Brave New World; and Wonderboys by Michael Chabon.

What book were you hoping to love, but were sorely disappointed with?

Oryx and Crake, by Margaret Atwood. It's Margaret Atwood! What could go wrong? Quite a lot, apparently. I was also disappointed that I wasn't bowled over by David Sedaris' stuff, based on all his hype.

Any books you despise?

I have a love/hate relationship with Catcher in the Rye. :-)

Favorite book from childhood?

Watership Down by Richard Adams.


I started this group hoping to find a bunch of cool, smart people to talk books with. I have, and that makes me happy. :)

What Jennie is saying about this Meetup Group

Nice, smart, open-minded people. I'm glad we've come together as a group.
