It’s Online Book Club Day! (Or at least it was supposed to be.)
You thought I forgot! Don’t worry, it’s cool. I thought you forgot, too.
In fact, I’m almost hoping you forgot, because I’m about to do something I don’t think I’ve ever done before: I’m asking for an extension.
I’m a bit underwater at work. This means I need more time to go to the cyber store and buy cyber ingredients for the cyber crème brûlée I’m planning to make by using one of those tiny cyber kitchen torches. So fun.
(Bloggers, this also explains why I’ve been MIA in your comments sections and my own lately. I’m lashing with apologies, and will be back to reading your daily musings post haste, because I truly miss my friends!)
So. Instead of discussing Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez today, let’s move our Book Club meeting to Monday, January 31. If you’ve read the book, then I’m sure (like me) you’ll be ready to share your opinions about the major themes and characters from this author’s “startling” debut novel. (Note: If you haven’t read the book, you have a few extra days to get started. Don’t worry–it’s a fast read.)
Here’s an online reading guide to help whet your appetite for our discussion. It includes a plot summary and 21 questions to help you structure your thoughts.
Personally, I think we can come up with better questions than the ones in the guide. If you’d like to submit a question or talking point for the discussion, I’ll welcome it! Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks very much for granting my extension request. If you took the time to read the book, the least I can do is thank you by preparing an engaging discussion. Have a lovely Tuesday. In the meantime, please enjoy the latest installment of…
(I’ve been saving this one for a special occasion.)
My brother sent me this Roadside Shoe a few weeks ago, after he spied it in the parking lot of a local pizza restaurant. On the surface, it’s nothing special. Just another Roadside Shoe!.
But. Here’s why this particular installment blows my mind. Here’s what makes it so unique.
The Roadside Insole.
Have a Roadside Shoe!? Send it to email@example.com. I’ll feature your shoe pic here, and if you have a blog, I’ll pimp that, too.
