never enough time in the week

I've recently discovered that there is a Nextbook Book Discussion Group at the main branch of the Evanston Library that meets once a month. It's a shame that they meet on an evening that I am not free to attend. Their books chosen list for this fall/winter has some amazing looking books on it.

Well, it gives me some more books to add to the list for the next couple of library trips :)

I should keep an eye on the African-American Literature Discussion Group's book list page as well, but so far I've read a big chunk of the books on their list

Oh, I LOVED Last Kabbalist of Lisbon! One of the books I'd tell anyone to read (and I'll loan you my copy, too, if you promise to be good to it).

AB Yehoshua can be a tough read. That said, I'd give his latest a whirl.

But don't pass up Kabbalist. It's a mystery but with a different structure than we're used to here in the States. Really interesting stuff.
