I'm excited too. I've already been thinking about what the next selection should be since you get to pick. what are your favorite kinds of books?

Can we do baily’s story

[–]portcity[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

We can totally do that. But have you already read that? Don't you want to do something you haven't read before? As your aunt who is also a writer I can find books that I think you will like :)

Ha, I just looked up Bailey's Story. I know the guy who wrote that book!

[–]Avery 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

Then can we read pax I haven’t read it

[–]portcity[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Ok, you get to choose! I mean if you want Bailey's Story, it's your choice.

Hi Avery! Ok then we'll read Pax. I'll start looking for it online. How was your day today?

Are the illustrations required for the book to be enjoyed? Because I usually only deal in epub and alike formats because of ebooks ;)

[–]portcity[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

I'm not sure if that's the one or not, but Avery is my 10 year old niece and since we picked the first book as one her brother would like more, I said she could pick the second book ... I think that's probably though.

It seems like an appropriate book for that scene ;)

If people have money: The faggiest Vampire is one I recommend (and hope/know it won't ever make a dutch translation) for children, at one point.

EDIT: I mean you need a hard copy, pictures are inclusive and make it all more the better.

Great entry point for Bizarro literature :)

You know what, I clicked on the link and that book does look adorable and appropriate for kids, but the word in the title is considered a bad word in America! I think it must be a different word in Europe because the comments on that site also mention that they were surprised and then realize that in the book it means something different.

[–]Mnemonic 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The writer is American but the genre and his bibliography does have a way with titles which repel rather than attract.

Oeh 'Taoist themes' that alone sounds good enough. It's been awhile since I read any fantasy (though it's debatable if ancient myths aren't).

When is it due to be read? Usually it's a month right (not saying you should adhere to my 'hearsay' standards.)? But judging from the wikipedia page it can be quicker for this one I estimate.

I have never joined a bookclub, mostly because of the book choices (I really dislike Dutch 'Literature') or I couldn't make the place/time for the actual meeting and online it's mostly again the book choices being questionable.

Why don't you start the book and see how fast you read it. I've already looped in my mom and nephew. Meanwhile, as soon as I have adjusted the design a bit, I'll start bringing in more users.

Will do, I already found a copy in my 2TB ebook library.
