Book Club

We’ve done a couple of book clubs on wikifray so far, and they’ve been interesting and engaging (for the participants, at least). We’ll need some more people to join in to get another one going.

We haven’t settled on a book yet, for this one, but there’ve been murmurs of approval of the title august suggested, The Invention of Everything Else, by Samantha Hunt, about the inventor Tesla. The suggestion captured my interest, and I’m going to see a play about him tomorrow night and the Cultch.

Here are some I’ve been thinking about:
The one I’d really like to do, though, is this one: Little, Big, by John Crowley.

Feel free to express interest in taking part, and make suggestions of your own.

Initial book club post.

Have been looking for an excuse to read The Secret Agent by Conrad for a while now. Especially since it's been in the news recently. (Googling that, it looks like that story has been recycled a few times. Probably bullshit.)

Little, Big is a great book.

No decisions, no commitments. I'll let the book club go for now.

Karen O tells me she found Under the Volcano rather dreadful.
