Anyone interested in a book club?

I've been thinking, you know, I've got just a shitload of books that I've either been meaning to read, have gotten partway through and then abandoned, or wouldn't mind rereading. Most of 'em political/feminist, but really I'm up for just about anything, and would love to trade suggestions and then, like, actually have a motivation to finish and TALK about 'em. What say? If you're interested, drop me an email at bel4 AT earthlink DOT com.

I just finished Sarah Waters' "Fingersmith," and if you haven't read it, I have to say I adored it. The BBC miniseries adaptation was wonderful, too, but the book--damn.

This is actually my first Sarah Waters. I think I'll go find more soon.

well, I loved Tipping the Velvet. (the miniseries was kind of eh quality wise, but eye candy wise, hubba hubba hubba). Fingersmith--I liked it for most of it, but then the sheer Gothicness of the plot just crashed my credulity, i'm afraid.

I'd be interested!

I'd also be very much interested.

I've been meaning to read Tipping the Velvet for ages (been sitting on my shelf for months), and I'm trying to get my hands on Fingersmith - just saw the miniseries the other week.

I might be in, but I typically don't read novels. That being said, I'm just finishing "We have talk about Kevin," and loving every minute.

i still have 'naked on the internet' and 'homocore: the loud and raucous rise of queer rock' unopened in a plastic borders bag... i don't read much fiction unless they're classic novels or harry p. maybe this would be an opportunity to start?

yes! I would like that too. I'm always thrilled to talk about radical books.

By coincidence, in a couple hours I am picking up a woman who will be cross dressed as a man and taking him to a friends house for dinner and a movie. And the host and I were thinking Tipping the Velvet for the movie.

Definitely eye candy.

I just reread tipping the velvet, and would definitely be up for a spin with that one.

I've also had this outright desire to re-read This Bridge Called my Back, but I have to go to a different branch library to get it.

Otherwise, I'm very absorbed in the latest Harry Potter right now. And also a couple of anthologies: Making More Waves--writings of Asian American Women; and Latina: Women's Voices from the Borderlands.

And just finished the last book in the Series of Unfortunate Events.
