I’ve always wanted to be part of a book club (that is, other than my fleeting mother-daughter group in the 7th grade). So naturally, when I stumbled across the 24-Hour Bookclub a few months ago, I couldn’t wait for the next book to be announced.
Self-described as a “reading flashmob” the book club is Diana Kimball’s brainchild, encouraging participants to read the chosen book in one day and discuss it on the Internet. For someone who doesn’t necessarily have a lot of time to devote to extracurricular reading, no idea has ever seemed more perfect.
The pick for January 6 is Both Flesh and Not, a collection of essays, by David Foster that I’m really excited to start reading. The book is the latest of Foster’s non-fiction writing on a wide range of topics – I already have my copy reserved for pick-up at the local library.
If you’re looking for me on Sunday, I’ll most likely be curled up with this great read, a big mug of coffee and my computer so I can follow along. Happy reading!
