So a little bit about life before we get to the book: My sis got HITCHED! Yep, I was delayed in posting because I was busy with my baby sis's wedding. It went off without a hitch and the bride and groom could not be happier. No official pics yet, but here is a quick shot of the happy couple:
Now that that little moment of big sister pride is out of the way, we can get back to our reading :-) This month's reading is Practical Classics: 50 Reasons to Reread 50 Books You Haven't Touched Since Highschool by local author Kevin Smokler. Smokler's prose is concise and to the point. And his points are indeed well founded. It is a quick and inspiring collection of essays, organized around the events of one's adult life and the books that can and perhaps should be read at those times. I suggest skipping from section to section as interest, time and life events inspire. Kevin will join us at our meeting to discuss :-) on Wednesday April 24th from 6p-8p. Join us for a lively discussion and some delicious libations!
