For your sake, I’ll start with the tl;dr.
I’m starting a book club.
First rule about book club is you don’t talk about book club.
Second rule of book club is you don’t talk about book club.
The third rule in book club, when someone says stop, or goes limp, even if they’re just faking it, the book is over.
Only two guys to a book. One book at a time. Read without shirts or shoes (pants are optional). The books go on as long as they have to. Those are the other rules of book club.
If this is your first night to book club, you have to fight… I mean… book… read.
Now ignore the first and second rules because I want you to talk about book club. Because this is about community and reading and books, and not about eventually moving on to bigger things, such as blowing up buildings. I repeat, this is not at all about blowing up buildings. *wink wink*
So, welcome to book club. If you have any recommendations (About books to read, not about where I can stick “it.” Whatever “it” is.) you can leave them down below or tweet them at me, or facebook, or whatever. Same goes for if you wanna talk about any of the books we’re starting out reading.
And what books are we reading?
- Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk (A reread for me, because why the hell not? This is book club after all.)
- Nysta: Revenge of the Elf by Lucas Thorn (Because it seems somewhat in line with what I write.)
- The City Stained Red by Sam Sykes (Because I’ve been meaning to for a while and, again, in line with what I write.)
- Moby Dick by Herman Melville (Because I’ll be damned if PewDiePie has read it and I haven’t.)
- The Alex Crow by Andrew Smith (Because I found it at Dollar Tree.)
- The Evelyn Wood Seven-Day Speed Reading and Learning Program by Stanley D. Frank (Because we have an ass load of books to read and no time to do it. And because I found it at Goodwill.)
End of our too long tl;dr. On with the post.
No… ya know what? This is plenty long enough for this post (too lazy; didn’t write). It’s a series now. Catch part two on Wednesday. Unless I decide to write about something else.
I am Joe’s lazy ass.
