Well, here we are in September! I’m back from my travels and hoping to share some photos on Sunday. Today’s post is brief, just to make sure everyone is on the same page with regards to Reading Buddies.
First, it’s time to start in on Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh! Since September has five Fridays instead of four, I’ll be posting about this one on 9/16 and 9/30.
October’s book, which won in the poll by a hair, will be Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenedies, to be discussed on October 14th and 28th. The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout, the other choices, were just a few votes behind. I’m thinking I’d always like to have a “classics” option, so The Woman in White is, in fact, making an appearance on November’s poll, and I’ll work Olive Kitteridge into the mix again soon.
Speaking of November’s poll, it’s now up in the sidebar, so be sure to vote for your top preference! The winner will be announced in about a month.
As for informal reading buddy books, there is some interest in A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I’m hoping to pick it up closer to the middle of September. If you’re interested, let me know and we can join forces. I’m hoping there will be more informal reads, just as soon as I can get a better handle on my fall reading schedule!
