Book Club Bloggers - October

You know what I've discovered is the best part of belonging to a book club?  Getting to see a book through the eyes of the other participants.  There is just no denying that it is better for me to read a book in community than all alone.  I get so much more out of my reading experience.

So when I was offered the privilege of choosing this month's selection for the Bookclub Bloggers, I was tickled.  How much fun will it be to see one of my all time favorite books through the eyes of the other participants?

This month's selection is:

Interpreter of Maladies
by Jhumpa Lahiri

This collection of nine short stories is one that I've loaned to countless friends and family members.  A winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2000, what I find most intriguing about the book is that it is Lahiri's DEBUT work.

I am so excited to read it again, and I'm hoping YOU (yessssss, YOU) will read it along with us.  Then since you've read it, you should participate in the Bookclub.  You don't HAVE to be a blogger to participate.  Charlotte, the head chick in charge, will be happy to help you non-bloggy types participate.

In case you're looking for a little bit of info on the book, read this interview with Jhumpa Lahiri.

The book club members will be posting their reactions to and reviews of Interpreter of Maladies on October 29th.  You still have plenty of time to track down a copy and get to reading it.  My suspicion is that you will not be disappointed.  But, neither of us is going to know until you read the book. {subtle, right?}  I'm really excited for the opportunity to see this book through other reader's eyes.

What do you say?  Are you IN?
