Welcome to the Book Club of Doom!

We're just getting started, so we need something to delve into. Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut was recently recommended to me, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to come by. I reckon that there's a good chance I'm the farthest from civilization anybody can possibly get, so it might be a good meter of availability if I can get my hands on any one particular book or not.

If anyone has any suggestions for a book, feel free to post them here. We'll probably start our first round close to the week of Halloween.

Somehow, I've managed to not read any of Vonnegut's work yet. Crazy, huh?

I'll add a book suggestion as soon as one comes to me. 6:30am is too early for any sort of brain function. z__Z

I'm rather pleased with this layout. It's called Poe, and was one of the only styles available for a Plus account XD

I like it. It's kinda spooky, which just makes me like it a bunch. ;D
(I actually meant to mention that I liked it in my last comment.)

Book suggestion(s):
- A Passage to India - E.M. Forster
- 1984 - George Orwell
- Persuasion - Jane Austen

I'd also be interested in reading any by Anaïs Nin, Kurt Vonnegut, or Margaret Atwood.

Oh, nice. I have 1984, but I'm sure I could come across any of the others on Amazon.

I think they're all rather common. So far, I don't any that either of us has mentioned, but it would be easy enough to find them at the library or a used book place...

There's neither a Library nor a bookstore anywhere near here. D:

Just a random, godless universe.

I have Amazon. Amazon loves me.

Ooh, I haven't read either of those yet...although I think I saw both movies a long time ago (not that that counts in any way, shape, or form). :P
