Calling all readers and book lovers! - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
Calling all readers and book lovers!
I've just discovered that my friend Michael Dirda, Pulitzer-prize winning book critic for The Washington Post, has a relatively new discussion group going on over there called Dirda's Reading Room. It's a really neat forum where group members can post in all kinds of different threads discussing books. Michael is the moderator and joins in often. He's one of the most well-read and literature-savvy people I know, so discussions are sure to be insightful and interesting.

If you are a lover of books and literary discussion, I suggest you head on over and give it a try. Joining is free (just register with the Post), and then you can start right in geeking out about books. I've already found several threads to contribute to.

And now, off to work in the ice and snow!

Ooh, 25 is a good goal. Maybe it will help - whenever I read Michael's (positive) reviews I find myself wanting to go out and get the book, so it's certainly possible. :)

I joined and am going to try to follow the group along with the other bazillion things I'm doing right now. Heh.

Oh, thanks for the link, literary discussions are always interesting! :D
Not sure if I'll have anything intelligent to contribute, but I'll certainly check it out.
