National Reading Group Month!

My fellow citizens,
October’s been declared National Reading Group Month.
My book club is
celebrating by not meeting in October. Actually, that’s just because our
meetings are taking place in late September and early November; we’re not
staging a protest.
And it’s also time
for a book club update. Here’s what we’ve read since the last one:
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (I didn’t even attempt to skim it, after
my eyes rolled back in my head on page 2)
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank (which I re-read for about the
7th time)
Wild by Cheryl Strayed (which ticked me off in a big way)  
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer (which I re-read and found
just fine the second time)
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis (which I also re-read and
found better than I remembered; I cried)
zombie sandwiches!

World War Z by Max Brooks (which I skimmed 1/3 of the
way through and then gave up because I just didn’t care; everyone else loved
it; my friend made zombie sandwiches)

Next up: a friend
has chosen The Shining. I’m already
having nightmares.
(Here’s our complete list since forever ago.)

    I've finished reading Wild, so we can talk about it now. I'd love to hear more about why you hated it. Also, I loved the Alexie book, and so did my mom who just read it this month.
