Let the Book Club begin!

Today is the start of the inaugural Divine Comedy of Errors book club. Here's how it's going to work: The book is Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie. I picked up a copy last night, and it's longer than I expected, but it's divided into three sections, which makes it easy to split it up for Book Club purposes.

You have until next Friday to read the first section, Book One. In my edition, that's pages 1 - 133. Totally doable, right? Next Friday, I'll put up a post with my thoughts and commentary, and everyone can discuss in the comments section.

If you are participating, leave a comment here, just because I'm curious to see who decided to give DCOE Book Club a try.

Happy reading!

I have the book and will do my best to meet your lofty goals :) We're going away next Fri, but I will try and post!

I have the book, because a book club I was in several years ago picked it. It was the only book that no one read. I'd love to join, but I have another book club book to read before Tuesday and I know there's no way I'd be able to get through that much of the book before Friday. But, I'll be interested to see how this goes and what you all think of the book (maybe I'll read it then).

I'll give it a go if I can find the book today. (I'm 1/3 of the way through "In the Name of the Rose" and quite frankly, I need a break from all the yapping about medieval monks.)
