Blurbing book club book from 1 January - 31 January 2011.
Here's a few things you should probably do:
1. Read the book (obviously).
2. Come back to this forum and leave your thoughts about the book. You
can write a sentence, you can write an essay, it doesn't matter,
whatever you want.
3. Blurb the book.
Some of you may not know what a blurb is so allow me to explain: A
blurb is a sentence of 10 words or less, that sums up the book in
question. If you want an example, look on the back (occasionally the
front) of some books lying around your house. Those are blurbs.
Keep in mind that you can also compose lol-cat blurbs if you'd like (the same thing but with internet slang).
This book was chosen for January because it's one of my favourite books ever, it's widely available and I hope we can start the New Year off with a great book discussion.
I never was able to get into Speaker for the Dead. I think I picked it up at least 3 different times getting further and further with each successive read. The whole piggies thing and it had such a "downer" feeling right from the start I just never found myself dying (no pun intended) to get back to it. Its been years now though, I may have to pull it down again soon.
I loved this book, although it didn't make me cry like Speaker for the Dead. Love the ending.
