Book club proposition

Igor (the hurricane), is messing up what was supposed to be good weather.

I went to Central station this morning and booked my ticket for Toronto.

I told you guys about it,

gonna visit some friends,

as well as the great Canadian Metropolis.

Never been to Toronto.

I’m really pumped,

 a vacation!

New city to explore,

 and the Hockey Hall Of Fame ( YEH!).

I haven’t been on vacation in years.

So, the prospect of a weekend in Toronto,

 feels like a two weeks of sand for most people.

I used to belong to a book club for queer women.

But, since two of the members,

 including the founder,

moved away,

I have been a book club orphan.

So I had a thought,

 I am going to read 5 books with a lesbian theme or by a lesbian author and discuss them.

Hopefully, some of you would like to read along,

 and either post on your blogs or comment here.

The 1 st will be, My Year Of Meats by Ruth L Ozeki.

I purchased this book for the book club,

 but, for some unknown reason,

 we never read it,

it has been sitting on my desk since.

I will discuss it on the blog the last week of October.

Next, for the end of November,

 The Mere Future by Sarah Schulman.

I think Sarah Schulman is a brilliant and original writer and have read most of her books.

But, not this one.

No book for December, Christmas, Hanukkah etc.

For January?

 How about some suggestions?

I would truly appreciate the chance to discover a new author.

I am a neophyte at this,

 so be gentle,

 but,  please give feedback.

Well, it’s bedtime,

Dude, my cat, awaits.

Later girls

I am a bookish butch in my mid early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream
