Start Your Engines

As Amy said in the last blog post, our book club's third book has been selected (The Girl Who Played with Fire), but we never assigned a meeting date.

Well, start your engines, because we (sorta) assigned a to-be-read date. We also assigned the fourth book. Yea. Go figure.

Our goal is to have The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest both read for a joint discussion meeting in December.

We think asking to have our third book (second in the Millenium series) read by October-ish will give those of us complaining about how difficult it is to read when the weather is beautiful (ahem, Staci) time to finish. We also might try to meet virtually in the fall to discuss. We will see.

I haven't started the book. Nikkie is 400 pages in.

My excuse: I have three books I am currently in the middle of: Eat, Pray, Love; A Time to Kill; and Atonement. (Yes. I realize the irony of those titles.) I should probably remove the bookmark from at least one of them because I haven't picked up any of them in probably a month. My other excuse: every time I go out into the sunshine to read, my eyelids automatically close and I don't resist the urge.

Is it easier or harder to read in the summertime?
Do you prefer to read when it's rainy or sunny?
What do you do when you are in the middle of a book, but haven't read it for awhile?
Do you think I should stop reading all three books and start reading the book club books?


  1. Wait. What? I don't remember this discussion! Who came up with these ideas on joint discussions/virtual discussions?

    PS: I'm now about 1/2 through the book ;)

  2. woah what?! where was i when this discussion took place!? i think kc might've dreamt all of this . . . or you had it without me b/c you know i wont be able to read it all by then . . . i want to read the help instead.
