Our next book - Out Stealing Horses

Hope to see everyone when we meet to discuss "Out Stealing Horses" by Per Petterson on June 26th at Priscilla's house. We'll also be selecting our next six books at this gathering.

"He is watching the news. I don’t know when I last watched the news. I did not bring a television set out here with me, and I regret it sometimes when the evenings get long, but my idea was that living alone you can soon get stuck to those flickering images and to the chair you will sit on far into the night, and then time merely passes as you let others do the moving. I do not want that. I will keep myself company."

Coming up this Friday: A Three Dog Life

See you at Christi's house at 7 p.m.

"It's easy now - it's middle-aged lady, nobody's looking, nobody notices. I go without lipstick if I feel like it, and I always wear my comfy clothes. It's a life with fewer distractions, but should something beautiful show up, a middle-aged woman is free to stare."
— Abigail Thomas (A Three Dog Life)
