May Update

A couple of announcements:

1) I will be asking for reader recommendations in mid-May. I will probably be only asking for two this time, as I will still be working on a book recommended from January (yes, January); namely, Ender's Game, by Orson Scott Card, which has only just become available at the library.

2) On that note, I am nearly finished my marginal commentaries on the other two books I selected for January: World Made by Hand, by James Howard Kunstler, and Bringing Down the House, by Ben Mezrich. Look for them to come out in the next week or so.


  1. The following is the list of books my book club will be reading. Maybe you would be interested

    1.The World According to Garp – John Irving
    2.The Wednesday Letters – Jason F. Wright
    3.The Sister: A novel of Emily Dickenson – Paola Kaufmann
    4.One Thousand White Women – Jim Fergus
    5.Diary of a Wimpy Kid – Jeff Kinney
    6.The Reincarnationist – M.J. Rose
    7.Girl, Interrupted – Susanna Kaysen
    8.The Thief Taker – Janet Gleeson
    9.Wide Sargasso Sea – Jean Rhys
    10.Room – Emma Donoghue

  2. Great, thanks!

    That's quite a lot for one go, mind, so what I'll do is randomly select two and put them on my list for books recommended by people for May.
