Two more quick notes on books

21 04 2011

First, an awesome, simply awesome thing to hear about the ‘Guys Read’ book club for 15 boys aged 8-11 in West Mercer, Washington. More of this, please. I wish there had been something like this for me growing up and I hope there’s something like that for my son. Maybe we’ll even start it, who knows?

Second, Jennifer Egan dissed “chick-lit” and now Jennifer Weiner among others are dissing Egan and there’s just too much damn lit/genre snark going on on twitter. To get started, go go here. Weiner even started an #eganfail hashtag. And you know what really fails? All of it. Give me a break.

That reading group is very, very cool. It’s neat to see reading encouraged as a social activity. šŸ™‚
