Internet is very hard to come by in Maine! The wireless network I usually steal has mysteriously disappeared so I’ve been forced to find another one! But while between thieving activities I have been internetless! Sooo sad!
Anyway, I think we should read American Psycho and we should all tell each other when we get it and before we start reading it so we all start at the same time. Should be a good time! I’m going to try to get it this week; might get it tomorrow actually. I ordered Everything is Illuminated about 3 weeks ago and I still don’t have it so that one’s been put on hold…perhaps permanently.
And Arielle, OF COURSE I read Harry Potter before I saw it! You crazy?! Aaaand Anne and I have now seen it 3 times as of last night hehe

I have not even so much as read a page from Harry Potter in preparation for this movie, but seeing as I'm seeing it with Kailey tomorrow, I'm sure she'll remind me of all the details because I know she at least was attempting to read it again.

Ok, so in weighing this decision I tried to keep everyone's interests and tastes in mind. So! Given Emily and my affinity for the movie, Arielle's enjoyment of sadistic violence and dislike of anything too old, Kailey and Anne's ability to be game for most anything, I think we could all read American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis? I promise it'll be easier to read than the Satanic Verses, but it will make you squeamish (unless you're Arielle).
ALSO, I think (if Anne hasn't read this already), we could all get a lot of enjoyment out of The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. It's very, very readible even though it's non-fiction (I read one of the more famous sections and it was pretty funny). Arielle's my hold-out on this one, she'll either think it's interesting or...not. It's a good conversation starter, so it might help us get through quickly so that we can actually get the ball rolling.
Let me know what you ladies think.
