When we gather at my house in early December, we will be discussing Station Eleven: A Novel by Emily St. John Mandel. Says the author about her book, "My fourth novel is about a traveling Shakespearean theatre company in a post-apocalyptic North America. It's also about friendship, memory, love, celebrity, our obsession with objects, oppressive dinner parties, comic books, and knife-throwing." So yeah, I am quite intrigued.
And lastly, here are the random topics as discussed by Everything But The Book (Club) that have nearly nothing to do with the book:
- planes and Ebola
- asking Siri what planes are flying above us
- getting lost and using Google to find your way
- whether shopping at REI is actually outdoorsy or not
- how some of us would like to hike as is done in the book, but most of us prefer "glamping" (glamorous camping... with a car and internet and showers and wine).
- how we learned to ride bikes
