    Oh man, how I wish I had finished this book before yesterday! This line really struck me - from Lowell - "The world runs on the fuel of this endless, fathomless misery. People know it, but they don't mind what they don't see. Make them look and they mind, but you're the one they hate, because you're the one that made them look." And now I see more about his character and why she may have chosen to not make him vegan... But still very interesting that she outright said that line that Niki brought up...

    I'm sorry I cannot mark it either. I'm covering for folk who are away on holiday from their shop. Enjoy!

    Ah. I am SO sorry I can't make it to book club again! I read the book when it first came out and thought it brought up some very interesting ideas that I'd love to be able to discuss. Oh well. Has a book for May been decided yet?

      Yes! It's all listed under the may bookclub event. We'll miss you :(

      Oh ha. It didn't even occur to me to look there... It looks like a great book too, but I probably won't be in town for it either :( Erg.
