fight club . . . the literary kind
i know, but i had to, had to, HAD TO, post this really quick blog post.
narrator: Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club! Third rule of Fight Club: if someone yells "stop!", goes limp, or taps out, the fight is over.
now why, pray tell, would i be talking about fight club? because apparently, conflict isn't just in the ring (basement, fight club) but in . . . the book club!
book club?? yes! take a look at this article from the san jose mercury news. it's the age old story of the haves and the havenots (or wantnots). what's a bookclub to do when some members have those newfangled kindles and ithingies and the others have just plain old books? book swaps will be endangered? conversation stifled. woe, woe, woe.
sometimes i think americans just like a good ole' fight.
happy reading . . . no matter the format (unless you're in a book club).
note: i think i'll start throwing in book recommendations too. why not - it's my blog.
recommend: life by keith richards (it's not all about the stones)
avoid: mr chartwell by rebecca hunt
