What are you reading?

When ever I think of the term ‘book club’ it conjures up images of blue hairs drinking tea and discussing the latest harlequin romance novel they've devoured (not that there’s anything wrong with that)!

And while I’m sure we’ll get there, six years into the evolution of our book club we’re dressing up like our heroines and discussing if we lost our virginity the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ way, all (of course) in the context of the book! How freakin’ cool & intellectual is that?!

I'm now just getting into our next book which is about the cultural, medical & spiritual clashes between Hmong & American cultures in 'The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down' by Anne Fadiman.

Is that really your old wedding dress? You looked so beautiful on The Day all those aeons ago. I have to confess the socks do it for me, together with the tiara such refinement for a Yorkshire lass:-)

What am I reading?

Something on the internet while the Zen guide to the motorocycle maintenance stays untouched in the backpack...
I need a internet addicts support group...

Hey mater that's not my old wedding dress and while I might have looked great on The Day-I looked better at The End!

Meesh: Don't fool us I've seen you with your head stuck in "weather systems for dummies"!

Ely: A star is born!

Lano: Bloody fantastic, now I get to check your blog at work, how extremely cool is that?! Good job.

Cammar: If you’re looking at the pictures on La Republica that doesn’t count as reading!
