I can hardly believe it. We have a real live book club in my town.
We started out with a bang.
We met for the first time in July,
and chose our first book for discussion,
Friendship Bread by Darian Gee.
At our August meeting,
we shared bags of Friendship Bread starter....
and loaves of Friendship bread...
and Friendship Bread cookies.
What is the Sunday Salon?
Imagine some university library's vast reading room.
It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in.
They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,
and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go.
Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and
compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....
That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual.
Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon
get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read.
And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs.
Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon,
an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities
and fall into a good book.
