Ah, the world is back in balance--my daily dose of The Age of Innocence came via email this morning (from DailyLit) and I read it immediately. One reason, at least, to like Mondays (besides the fact that the kids are back in school--ahhh).
My book group meets this week, and I'm very excited, because we'll be discussing The Post-Birthday World, by Lionel Shriver. I don't think we've had enough time to read it, so I'm pretty sure not everyone will be finished. But we never postpone meetings, because we love to get together, even if we don't talk about books.
This book should be really interesting to discuss, though. It's about a 40ish woman making decisions about her romantic relationships, and reading it has been a bittersweet experience. I'm very curious about my fellow book groupers' opinions on this one. And I'm happy to have anyone else weigh in...
And we have a policy that if you haven't read the book, you have to throw five bucks into the kitty. At some point, when we have enough cash, we'll all go out to dinner. My husband thinks that is just too much incentive NOT to read the books!
Does anyone else have any book group rules or policies they want to share? Any interesting ways to pick books?
