I must be very unpleasant ...

All the women I work with started a "book club" but they didn't invite me to join. Of course, since I rarely read fiction (except for harry Potter, of course) I probably wouldn't have joined anyway ... but it's strange not to be invited. So now it's left me wondering what I said to offend every single one of them. Maybe it was something like "God I fucking hate Oprah" ...

I fucking hate Oprah, too.

You can sit next to me at lunch :)

Thanks, elsa. You're way cooler than they are.

but surely you have read one other work of fiction worth reading in the last year...

I think the problem is that you are just too cool for these people. Yes, that's definitely it.

Oh yeah ... come to think of it ... something about a vampire girl!

Yeah, that's it, I'm too cool for school!

I actually read one other work of fiction--Paulo Coelho's latest novel "The Zahir." I had been meaning to blog about how much I disliked it, but the o'l laziness got into the way ...

You can join my book club! The requirements are that you pretend to attempt to read the book and are willing to occaisonally drive far away to meetings, except most of the meetings are in durham.

We have been strugging to find people that agree to these conditions.

We read non-fiction & fiction, but I'm a fiction advocate, so I'm always pushing the fiction, and getting the non-fiction forced on me. But I think its all about (attempting) to read something you might not normally.
