First Book Club Meeting of the Paperback Posse

Alicia Fuhrman ’12 sends word of a new club:

If any of the following can be found on your current or imagined bookshelf:

  • The Books You Haven’t Read
  • The Books You Needn’t Read.
  • The Books Made For Purposes Other Than Reading
  • The Books Read Even Before You Open Them Since They Belong To The Category Of Books Read Before Being Written
  • The Books Made For Purposes Other Than Reading
  • The Books Read Even Before You Open Them Since They Belong To The Category Of Books Read Before Being Written
  • The Books That If You Had More Than One Life You Wold Certainly Also Read But Unfortunately Your Days Are Numbered
  • [Hit “Read More” for the rest of this event submission. Get it? Read More??]

  • The Books You Mean To Read But There Are Others You Must Read First
  • the Books Too Expensive Now And You’ll Wait Till They’re Remaindered
  • the Books ditto When They Come Out In Paperback
  • Books You Can Borrow From Somebody
  • Books That Everybody’s Read So It’s As If You Had Read Them, Too
  • Books You’ve Been Planning Top Read For Ages
  • Books You’ve Been Hunting For Years Without Success
  • Books Dealing With Something You’re Working On At The Moment
  • Books You Want To Own So They’ll Be Handy Just In Case
  • Books You Could Put Aside Maybe To Read This Summer
  • Books You Need To Go With Other Books On Your Shelves
  • Books That Fill You With Sudden, Inexplicable Curiosity, Not Easily Justified
  • Books Read Long Ago Which It’s Now Time To Reread
  • the Books You’ve Always Pretended To Have Read And Now It’s Time To Sit Down And Really Read Them

Then you probably read, and should probably join Wesleyan’s book club for adventures in communal reading. The Paperback Posse is kicking off November with Pynchon’s The Crying of Lot 49, first meeting Thursday at 4:15 PM in

Allbritton’s new cafe space. Several copies available for loan, first come first serve. We’ll be discussing logistics and hammering out the details for our future reads and meets. Read or perish (which is a revised version of join or die, which actually also applies).

  • Date: Thursday, November 4
  • Time: 4:00 – 5:00 PM
  • Place: Allbritton Cafe
