The Moderators of the group based on the book 1001 BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU DIE welcome you.
There is a general explanation of the group and some answers to FAQ under the discussion thread GROUP GUIDELINES. The past BOTM can be found pinned to the top for 2011, 2010 and 2009 if you want to search discussions you can join in anytime.
Our November BOTMs are:
1. The Princess of Cleves by Mme. De Lafayette
2. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John le Carré
3. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Also, we are reading David Copperfield by Charles Dickens as a seasonal read.
Please join us in one or all four. The discussion questions are posted and pinned to the top of the discussions.
Moreover, books are posted for December BOTM Voting. Stop by and cast your vote.
Thank you, Amir! I have read your comments on Life of Pi and I agree with what you said regarding our belief in what is more acceptable to our minds. In reading Life of Pi, I confirmed my pessimism because although I wanted to believe the animal story, I think the brutal human story was more plausible. Oh, well, I'm just glad it's all fiction anyway.
Have a great weekend ahead! :-)
