Why do we even pick a book then?

I swear, I think this whole trying to get everyone to read the same book is much harder than I would have imagined. I think I'm just going to read the books on the list Grace provided on facebook in whatever order I decide, and then no matter what people decide to read eventually, I'll have read it and can discuss it. In the meantime, I'll stick with Everything is Illuminated and Life of Pi to start. Although I may break from our list to go read some more Dostoyevsky and Hemingway. I've been meaning to get back to my favorites for a while now, so that may be next.

As for my brief escape, I was in Milwaukee over the weekend to see my cousin graduate high school. It was a pretty good time, aside from the planes both being at ridiculous hours of morning and preventing sleep from happening. But I learned more about beer than I ever knew before, so that's something.

And I have another escape planned! I am returning to Boston for the second week of July, and then, barring any unforeseen events, making my way up to Maine to be killed in some ridiculous plan that Kailey has lined up. All told, that's going to be a like a full two week freedom from NJ. And after that I get to go to Bermuda in August. :)
