Lale: you read the books in the order you prefer, as long as you give us your insight. |
Steven: As I did like "The Savage Detectives", I'm interested in other books by Bolano, and of course I would like to read your opinion on "2666". Please let us know. We know there were some parts Sterling found more than unpalatable, so let's see.
: I am terrible at solving codes. I'm not particularly
: good at puzzles of any kind, but codes, forget it! :^)
: So I guess your secret is safe from me, Lale.
: For the past couple of years, I have been reading some
: books from our yearly lists outside of the schedule.
: And that is not cool. Reading a different book, a book
: that is not on the list is OK, but reading club books
: out of the sequence is a little hard to explain or
: "frowned upon" I thought, so I was always
: afraid to tell you guys. there were many books I read
: was ahead of schedule and didn't tell you. Some books
: I read long after they were due, and that you know
: about because I reawaken the discussion and write my
: thoughts. But the ones I read months before the due
: that, I am always trying to hide them, or find a funny
: way to confess.
: Why I read a book out of its turn has got to do with
: mood and availability. Sometimes I don't have the next
: book, or sometimes I don't feel like reading the next
: book. On a bookless night, I go downstairs and pick up
: a few unread books and whatever catches my attention,
: i go on with that one. That is ok, right? i should be
: allowed to do that?
: Anyway, I spent some time on this one:
