The Rosie Project (The Dropbox project)

If Jeni were to write a blog post for April—this is what it might say:

We met at Fire by the Monon to discuss The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.



We had pretty good attendance. Everyone was there except for Katie and Alissa. 

We liked the book overall.


It even received a handful of 'two thumbs up' which was quite a relief to me after selecting The Casual Vacancy as my last pick. (but everyone has one, right?...right!?)



We also discussed illegally sharing audio books via Dropbox because the Goldfinch by Donna Tartt is up in June and is nearly 800 pages long. I'm not really one for stealing, but I love it and I don't feel bad about it. At. All. 




We also noted what everyone is reading on the side:
Val: Bat Boy
Erin: The Interestings
Lindsay: Fan Girl
Stephanie: The Bridge to Terabithia 
         [pause for fake sobbing] 
Cris: Beautiful Ruins
Loran: The Knife of Never Letting Go
Jeni: Lean In
Jill: Divergent
Melissa: Eric Carle books 

Hot topic discussion involved TV shows about the Amish running away and FLDS (NOT Mormons!) running away. 



'Twas another great meeting.

On deck:
May: Tell The Wolves I'm Home (A.K.A. The Hound) by Carol Rifka Brunt
June: The Goldfinch (A.K.A The Mountain) Donna Tartt
July: The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
August: Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

Also, Bunk Bed Adventure has been scheduled for August 15-17. Start stretching now.
