bookclub at my house.

bookclub at my house…total fun. and just a little bit tired 🙂

the book was donna’s pick from last month mudbound. great read and we all enjoyed it. but we’re all a little (or, honestly, a lot) tired about feeling embarrassed about the way this wonderful country of ours has been (is?) so racist.

I knew after I finished this one – and thinking about the last few we’d read – that my pick couldn’t be about terrorism or iran/iraq/afghanistan, or WWWII or nazis, or racism in the US. turns out it’s really hard to find a book that’s worthy of bookclub without that!

one of our longstanding “rules” is that you should always pick a book you’ve read. I broke from that tradition a bit and selected motherless brooklyn. I have read the first 25 pages and it’s delightful (if you can even say that about 25 pages narrated by a guy with tourette’s whose boss gets murdered). and I loved that the opening scene takes place just a few blocks from katie’s apartment.

and thanks to sara for the photo. I think the one I took on the timer turned out ok, but sara’s does have fewer legs (val – that’s for you!)

p.s. the poundcake was disappointing – great flavor, but the texture wasn’t dense and rich; sara’s doing research and we’ll try again…

One thought on “bookclub at my house.

  1. the book sounds good, of course i'll probably want to read it, too bad about the pound cake. look forward to finding out "what happened", happy friday- yaaaaaaaa
