Book Lovers -- Unite! See you at book club next Sunday?!


Alright, kittens! It's almost time! Just under a week away from #PluckyReads cyber book club! If you're new to the club, we "meet" once a month on Google Hangouts and discuss the current read. The discussion usually lasts about an hour, and you sort of need wine on hand because -- duh. It's book club. I also send out a newsletter sporadically with upcoming dates, picks, and meeting details. We're trying a little something new this time that involves registering via eventbrite

So now that we have all of the pesky details out of the way, here's a look at what we're reading this time around! This month, we're delving into our second pick from the one and only Rainbow Rowell -- Attachments. The preview snippet on Amazon reads like this:

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?

Intriguing, right?! Read it this week (it won't take long!) and join us next Sunday, September 27th at 8:00 PM EST for some good discussion and great company! PS. Already planning to attend?? Invite your friends! We're fairly nice to new people. ..sometimes.
