Our Selections

Hi, guys! Inky is currently sans computer, so I'll be posting solo for a bit until we figure out a creative way around the public library's "personal content" filters (and what they consider personal content is extremely arbitrary, but that's another matter altogether).

We've made our selections for the book club, and the swap went down at Inky's swinging new pad last Monday.

Inky's choice: Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel

My selection: When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris

I finished Fun Home about a week ago, and I'm still turning it over in my brain. It's a complicated story, and probably the most literary graphic novel that I've ever read. I don't want to post a simple review because it deserves some serious brain-power, so I'm aiming to have some well considered thoughts ready for posting next week.

I will, however, say that I think it's funny that Inky and I both chose gay-friendly content for each other to read. Truly, great minds do think alike :)

March Challenge

Hey, guys! Long time, no post, I know - but I'm back!

I've recently rediscovered the joys of the library, so this month's event is reading-themed.

March Challenge: The Inky and SKate book club!

Inky and I will each pick out a book for the other to read. We'll report on our findings as we go along. Hopefully we'll be able to enlighten and entertain each other - or at least establish that maybe we shouldn't trade books that often.

I'll be heading up to Fernandina to check out Inky's groovy new pad this coming week, so I'll bring my selection to her then. I'm excited about what she'll pick for me.

go shawty it yo b-day

Happy Birthday to my bestest friend SKate! I hope it is a happy one and I wish you many more!

Soon we will have the March Challenge. I can't wait to see what it will be!
