Admittedly, I have a book club problem. I am just in too many book clubs. I love to read and I love to get together with others with similar interests. My book clubs are all rather casual ones that veer more towards pure social gatherings than in depth literary discussions.
I like to read book club books as close to the meeting as I can so that it is very fresh in my mind. Usually, my book clubs are spaced out pretty well and I can easily schedule my reading (control freak alert!). However in January, my 3 book clubs all fall within 4 days of each other.
Sunday January 11th- Last Night at the Lobster by Stewart O’Nan
Tuesday January 13th – Rasputin’s Daughter by Robert Alexander
Wednesday January 14th – Supercapitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life by Robert Reich
HOWEVER, I am not even to the point where I am ready to start reading any of these since I am currently in the middle of reading Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter. If only I can stop being distracted by holiday happenings and (sigh) naps, I could finish this fantastic and twisted little novel about an aerialiste extraordinaire.
How is your holiday season reading going? And, is there such a thing as too many book clubs??? (I think NOT)
