Book Club Update

I had a good book club last Thursday, but it's taken me a day to recover. The book we read was The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon. It was a much needed contrast to my last selection; it actually qualifies as literature. It's the story of an autistic kid who tries to solve the mystery of who has killed his neighbor's dog, Wellington. He learns quite a bit about the world and himself in the process. While the reading was a bit tedious (it is written in first person perspective of the autistic kid), I think it would make a fabulous choice for a book on tape. But, it did meet our book club's rule: you have to be able to read it in a day.

Because a significant portion of the action takes place in the train station, our meeting place was Wilf's, a piano bar in the train station. It was pretty swank, luckily for us the decor was RED (which is a super good thing in the book), but the piano guy and our waiter were strange indeed. I'm not so sure about Wilf's, especially because they've discontinued their happy hour.
