Today, in my earlier post I asked for new book suggestions and in browing the cyberworld, I happened upon an entire book club! Over at Gabby's lovely Felinofelice , I came across the Slow Readers Book Club.
I often get annoyed about the craziness of the world - people that are attached to their cell phones (pretty much my biggest pet peeve ever!), constantly checking emails, always feeling like you have to go, go, go just to get ahead. Why can't we all just live life like Europeans - relax, vacation, enjoy meals with friends rather than scarf down some fast food monstrosity (eeeeewwwww). That is why the concept of the slow movement totally appeals. The book club is meant to be a part of that culture. The first book is Jeannette Wall's Half Broke Horses. I have no idea what it is about, but I am going to pick up a copy and join the party!
