I’ve always been a book nerd. In elementary school, they tested me for a learning disability because instead of turning in my homework, I’d sneak a book under my desk and read all day. It just didn’t seem like Mrs. Smith could teach me more than “Max, the Dog That Refused to Die” could. In college, I majored in Literature and Sociology and later in Fine Art (and had the time of my life). Obviously, as an adult, I appreciate teachers, podcasts, and Ted Talks but I still spend a borderline unhealthy amount of time reading. It’s my way to disappear into another life or world and grow as a person while I do it.
And, I’ve decided it’s double the fun to read as a group. So, I’m going to post the things I’m reading here and if you want to read the same stuff, we can talk about them in the comments below (note: lots of spoiler alerts in the comments). It will be like our own deranged little book club.
Books For March:
All The Lives I Want by Alana Massey
The Beaver Show by Jacqueline Frances
Full disclosure: I’ve already read The Beaver Show but I’d like other people to read it so we can talk about it here (Full FULL disclosure: I know the author, but that’s not why I chose the book). I’m also halfway through High Fidelity (and loving it). I’m planning to start All The Lives I Want next weekend (in the tub with Prosecco and cannot fucking wait).
Have you read any of these? Thoughts?

I’ve read Salt, The Beaver Show, and um, my own book. I will talk about any and all of these plz.
Yas! I just started your book last night. Loved the Winona and Gwyneth chapter. Brilliant! Was telling a co-worker about it today and he said, “you’re a Winona,” then we were both quiet for a minute while we silently sorted everyone we’ve ever known.
Want to start with the Beaver Show?
Oh I didn’t know you had this blog! I am a VORACIOUS reader, I LOVE these types of posts! I haven’t read any of these, adding to my infinite list!
I love anything by Nick Hornby!
