What do you think about this one?


Okay, so I admit, I read this book around five years ago; therefore I am breaking my own rules. I was telling my husband last night that he should read The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night-time after we watched the new HBO movie, Temple Grandin (she's an autistic professor at CSU who revolutionized the way with think about animals and livestock-- look her up!), and it occurred to me: Hey! What about Book Club? It's got elements of a mystery to it, for sure, and it is such a different narrator... it would be a world-view changer for many of you, I am sure. Now, this book is YA, so I want you to do some research and make sure you and your parents are comfortable with you reading it. Then, let's have a vote! Who wants?

Just so we're on the same page, this one is Young Adult for strong language, but as far as I can remember, that's it. The adults in the story cuss quite a bit, I think. Anyway, take it under advisement with you folks and let me know!

That looks very intresting, I'll do some research later. :)

Oh, and even though we've just choosen our book, I think a suggestion for our next book might be The Children's Story, by James Clavell. (see name url for wiki link)I know it was published in the 80s, but I thought it sounded rather interesting...I just finished the short movie adaption.

Anyways, can't wait to see the book tomorrow!

Hey Joel, if I don't come find you today at some point, come find me-- I'd like to talk with you about this.
