For Book Club, Allison @ The Book Wheel & I decided to do things a little differently, and we are super excited about it!
For April, we will be reading Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, which is a classic novel on “love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation” (from Goodreads summary).
Then in May, we have Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi, which is the memoir of how an inspired teacher fought the Islamic regime by reading forbidden texts with her small group of select students.
I love this idea for 3 reasons:
1. It’s innovative – we haven’t done a Book Club comparison yet!
2. We get to compare a classic and a modern story.
3. We get to compare a related fiction and a nonfiction.
For April and May, we’ll discuss each book only twice during each month on my blog, Love at First Book. Same amount of time to read, half the amount of discussion weeks per month, but the same amount of amazing discussion!
Interested in participating in only one of the Book Club discussion months? That’s okay, too! We’d love for you to participate in both, but feel free to join in only one book discussion if that works better for you. We also made sure that both books would be readily available at most local libraries.
And don’t worry – both Allison & I will be sure to let you know of and remind you of the schedule!
Now who is going to participate with us?
