Hey everyone! We are coming down to the last couple of days for the November Vote (see post below titled “Hope You’re Hungry For A New Read”) and I am very excited to see what book we will be reading. I would like to say welcome to all our new readers and I hope you will find a comfortable chair and read with us awhile.
Meanwhile in “the real world” that is living in Okinawa, my other book club, “Lit & The Island” met last night at Transit Cafe on the Sunabe Sea Wall over looking the East China Sea. There we discussed “The Memory Keeper’s Daughter” by Kim Edwards. It was our October book and though it wasn’t the best written story we’ve read (nothing has been able to compare to “Middlesex” by Jeffrey Euginides which we read in 2006) I was amazed at just how much stuff happened in this book and kept us talking and discussing for a couple of hours. Yes we went off on tangents but we always seemed to come back to the book.
“Lit & The Island’s” November book is “Buddha – A Story of Enlightenment”by Deepak Chopra. I’ve already started it and I am very optimistic about this book. It is reading very well and very visual. I’ll keep you posted.
