The UW's book club

The UW is (surprise!) a book club drop out. Of several book clubs. Because laziness does not lead to meeting deadlines in timely fashions. And you can only show up and drink wine, eat your weight in cheese, and fake opinions for so long.

So now the UW is in an online book club with YOU! The gentle reader! Which means she will read a book, tell you she is reading the book, and when she is done (at her own pace, damn it!) she will throw up a post with a few ideas about the book and if you have read it as well feel free to chime in with comments. If you haven't read it, feel free to swill some wine and make shit up too - that's also welcome.

So the UW's inaugural pick is:

You know, the book all the cool kids have been talking about this fall, including the country's literary leader: Oprah.

So read it you want to. It's 576 pages, so the UW will be back with her thoughts on "Freedom" in approximately early 2013. Stay tuned.

OK--I bought this book in the summer, but have not yet read it. Maybe this will provide the encouragement I need. What I really need is to pause the books on my library list to give me a break so I have time for this one!
