Bookclub Meeting #3 AKA The Black Tulip works even better than Nyquil

OK, this is the third time I have tried to update today… so if this doesn’t work, oh well. Last night waas our third bookclub meeting. Can you tell I’m loving this little endeavour? Half of my posts in this blog revolve around the bookclub…

So anyway, it ended up being kind of lame. Nobody showed up. It was just me, Jenn, Laura and Laura’ s sister and her sister’s friend visiting down from Syracuse. Nobody, with an exception of Jenn, had read the book in its entirety. I didn’t even get it. It was The Black Tulip by Dumass I tried two libraries and wasn’t trying a third after hearing about how boring it was. The girl, Sofiya, who picked the book didn’t even show. I don’t think she even read it.

I’m sorry, picking books written over one hundred years ago that read like history texts for the bookclub does not make you look intellectual (especially if you don’t even read it yourself) it just makes you look pretentious.

The next pick is mine and we will be reading The Plot Against America by Philip Roth.
