The Expat Book Club

I'm back! These past two weeks have been a whirl of activity, adventure and excitement. It is definitely time for a nap.

Before I go into all the crazy details of spring break 2k10, I wanted to share with you my latest literary obsession.

Given to my by another expat (in Kazakhstan, no less!) it has taken me all of two days to finish this sucker. It's amazing:

Read it.

TWO DAYS? Gosh. That book was like a two month project for me. But I don't claim to be a bookworm (you are a bookworm, in the nicest of ways!).

This book is wonderful, I agree. I was so sad when it ended because I loved being a part of their world. I could have gone on reading it forever with no ending, and I would have been fine with that. Maybe you will pass it on to be loved by another? You're already that copy's third reader!

I've read it three times. My book club hated it (it was too long!!). Do pass it on, let someone else experience Irving's magic (but do not, I repeat do not, ever see the movie they tried to make of it). Hope to see you this summer! Jan Novak
