Just joined; my reading has slowed down the past couple of months but hope to pick it up again
Recently read Machiavelli's, The Prince

Lassiter, thanks for joining - and for joining the discussions.

I can commisserate - my pile of books next to the bed is not disappearing much, but I attribute that to holiday craziness.

How did you like Machiavelli's The Prince?

I'm not a member of a bookclub (except for LibraryThing), but thanks for the invitation...I'm busy going through my collection of books next to my bed...(in between my library pick ups).........I think I would like to try to find a bookclub in my area...2007 will be my chance to find one.....

I just joined this group as well. My Book Group is reading The Known World right now. I'm having trouble getting through it--mostly trouble keeping track of the many characters--but it is very beautifully written and I'm determined to finish!

I actually took the CD's of the book out of the library and have been listening to them in between the reading. This is helping!

Hello Everyone. I'm so glad to have received this invite. I always considered reading to be a hobby that was not frequently shared with other friends. But, after making some friends who happen to be writers as well as a librarian, I've come to appreciate the many facets books play in life.

So I need to do a little searching and find a book club here. I'm sure there's many in Chicago.

And I'm currently reading Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell and my second attempt at dhalgren by Samuel r. Delany. The second book was totally by chance. And at first I was very confused. But after a second go, I really started liking it.

Okay, so I need to find a group.. thanks to this group for some inspiration.

Hi Everyone! I forget that Librarything has this option. I'm currently reading Matthew Stokoe's High Life. Apparently, it's gruesome and depressing. Don't ask me how it is yet, because I've only read 2 chapters. ;P Also, I just finished Beckett's Molloy (the book before I read Ryu Murakami's Almost Transparent Blue). Molloy... is... so hard to put down, and hard to pin down as well. I don't know if I fully understood it, or if it is even meant to be understood. Murakami's book is about druggies. A group of friends who's sole interest is to be drugged out. ;)
