Anybody want to read another book?

I had a lot of fun with the Owen Meany series, and enjoyed the book more this time around than other readings.

Wanna do it again? Sundays? Maybe at a slightly more relaxed pace?

Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors and I have almost all of her books. I invite you to join me in reading (or rereading) her first, The Bean Trees, followed by her sixth, Pigs in Heaven, which is its sequel.

Chapter one is just 23 pages :)

Alrighty! When do we start?

Sunday!

(And anyone who wants to play but doesn't have this book, it's another one of those books that used bookstores usually have, and libraries invariably do.)

Yes, you must. At least now you know I pick good books!

Oh brother. One of those kinds of books. The ones I read don't usually have more that 23 pages TOTAL.

LOL!!

Good thing you didn't read Owen Meany with us. The reason I note the 23-pagedness of Chapter One in this book is that we were all reading 80+ page chapters last time around.

I probably won't this time, although I'll keep my eye out for it at the thrift store, and if I find it I might join in. :) I just have a long list of wanna-reads right now.

Great choice. I may join in this time if I can get home to get the book! I had Owen Meany at home but couldn't get there to play.

I got the book.

I read the chapter.

I'm ready to go this time!

Yay!
