Sandy & Lulu - Beloved

message 2: by Lulu (new) - added it

Lulu (robotwitch) Hey! I'm tentatively thinking of reading this around the week starting the 7th - does that work for you? I'm happy to rearrange it if not :)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Yes, that works great. We just moved a few weeks ago. Last night I spent time unpacking many boxes of books and found my copy! :-)

Lulu (robotwitch) Excellent! Am I right in assuming this is going to provide us with some bleak, heavy reading?

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Let's just say it's not a comedy.
It's about a very dark time in U.S. History, but the writing is phenomenal. I first read this for one of my grad school classes (almost 20 years ago!). Did you see the movie?

Lulu (robotwitch) Sorry, this didn't show up on my notifications for some reason, I only just thought to check it. I got delayed because of a heap of deadlines, and some technological problems. Hoping to start it this week, now.

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments Sounds good!
I will likely need,more time for A Brief History of Seven Killings

Lulu (robotwitch) Yes, indeed. I'm woefully behind on Brief History, and am worrying about whether I'll get to finish it before year's end. I'm determined that I will though, so I'll keep my fingers crossed to map out some time for it this week and next :)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 1117 comments I will try, too!
