March: The Friday Night Knitting Club or SLAM (or both!)
Also, I think we should meet the last Monday of March instead of the first week in April. (I’m open for a different date… with Easter and spring break there’s room for flexibility!)
April: The Glass Castle and Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls. The Glass Castle is a very quick read and Half Broke Horses looks to be quick as well. (Saw both books listed on Random House website (see links on the side!). Look interesting! You own both?)
May: Olive Kitteridge or The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy (I haven’t heard of the second one… but I’m game!)
June: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or Catcher in the Rye (Maybe in the summer we can meet more frequently and read more books???? What a dream…)
July: The Power of One or Best Friends Forever
August: The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desi or The Hummingbirds Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea
September: Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons or Back When We Were Grownups by Anne Tyler
October: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close or Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
November: The Story of Edgar Sawtelle or What is the What
December: A Wedding in December by Anita Shreve (haha)
This is a great plan and I’m up for adopting it in its entirety! I haven’t heard of some but am open. Others, as I wrote below, to think about are “The Girls from Ames” and “The Abstinence Teacher.” Also, “What is the What” !
And now, I’m really off to read!
