I think we are a bad book club.....


Okay, nobody take offense.... I mean this with the utmost love and affection.... but ummmmmm we suck at being a book club!

I'm wondering if we've been too ambitious... if we've raised the bar too high.... I mean, we are all Mommies, Daddies, Students, (insert label here) and have a lot stuff going on in our lives, so maybe a book a month is too much right now -- maybe we ought to be doing a book every month-and-a-half or every other month -- that way we actually read the books and actually have the discussions.

I guess my point is (get to the point already) that we have the potential to be the SUPERCOOLEST BOOK CLUB EVA -- but we aren't really living up to that potential. We were supposed to have read CTICP by yesterday and I know that I'm only at the half-way point..... I don't think I'm alone (am I????)

I'd like to propose a revised discussion date of May 11th -- that gives us another two weeks.... anyone want to second the motion? or tell me to stuff it?

Stuff what?

I haven't finished the book either. May 11 sounds plausible. That's 2008, right?

I have an entrapped nerve in my shoulder and carpal tunnell from carrying that book everywhere with me. I had NO IDEA special topics was so long... I'm enjoying it and all, but damn. This is one long ass longity long tome. Yes, extension, please.

P.S. still reading easter rising. don't hate me.

I second, but only to be supportive. I 'm not reading this one.

I third and since I am leading the discussion, I think that finishes the discussion (I am only half way too!).
