The Second Chance Book Club: Revival?

Aubrey and I tried, tried, TRIED to get a virtual book club off and running this year and unfortunately it just. hasn't. happened. That being said, would anyone be interested in joining us if we revived TSCBC (what an obnoxious acronym...sorry!)??

We've decided that we want to revive, resurrect, rekindle, or any other synonym that you'd associate with bringing this Book Club back to life.

That being said, we're going to pick up with November's book, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger.
From GoodReads: "Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists. His constant wry observations about what he encounters, from teachers to phonies (the two of course are not mutually exclusive) capture the essence of the eternal teenage experience of alienation."

Try it out. We'll discuss here on November 28...that's the Saturday after Thanksgiving. So, I know I'll be trying to finish up either my last few pages or my post on my drive home that week. Thank goodness for car rides to see family!

Last, but not least, please take the following survey. You do not have to put your name if you do not want to. But please take the survey so we can start choosing books for next year! Wowza. How crazy is it that next year is only weeks away?! Uff-da.

As always, please add the button to the bottom of your post if you join in!
