Book club romance, real or imaginary? Both!
This weekend 2 book club members, who met at book club, got married! This is the second wedding borne of the book club. I love it.
I also love that we're reading Ivan E. Coyote's The Slow Fix this month, because, well, I love Ivan E. Coyote, and well, when I speak of imaginary romance, it's because of my not-so-secret crush on her. Ever since the one time I saw her perform in person about um 10 years ago, I have been totally captivated. By her words, her stories, the way she tells them. (I also flirted my ass off, to no avail. Cut me some slack, my mom was with me at the reading, she cramped my style. :)
ANYWAY, we are reading The Slow Fix this month! We were originally scheduled to read Breathing Underwater by Lu Vickers but had to switch them because the bookstore didn't have enough Vickers in stock, but had lots of Ivan, good indie Canadian bookstore that it is.
Okay, so, got it? August=Ivan. September=Vickers. And we're just hopin' and hopin' that there will be a Canadian distributor in time to get copies of Shamim Sarif's I Can't Think Straight. It's a gooood summer line up folks. Join us!
