Leaky Lounge Book Club Reading Updates
May 03, 2009, 03:04 PM
Two of our Book Clubs hosted over on the Leaky Lounge forums have opened up readings of two new books starting today. First up, our Harry Potter Book Club has now started their reading of the forth novel in author J. K. Rowling's series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Secondly, Jo's Book Nook, home of our Non-Harry Potter book club, has chosen the Charles Dickens classic David Copperfield as their next reading group selection. This book is available for purchase via our own Cauldron Shop. Both of these communal book readings are open to all registered MyLeaky members and feature in-depth discussions about both of these novels. Join in now with your fellow Lounge members to take part in this most fun and thought-provoking reading group discussion. Enjoy!
GOF was my favorite HP book until I read Deathly Hallows. I loved the fact that Harry, Ron, and Hermione began to experience all that teen angst in GOF. I loved it!
That is really weird. I started reading David Copperfield a few weeks ago and I didn’t even know it had been chosen for the Book Nook. And that’s happened a few times. Apparently, I have a knack for that.
Dickens writing style has always been tough for me. When I read “Oliver Twist”, I had to plod thru the first several chapters before I felt comfortable with his style. But I love that he chose to write about the downtrodden. Many of his contemporaries, like Jane Austen, focused on the British upper classes. I love Austen. She’s one of my all-time favorite writers, but Dickens stories are truly haunting and I will keep plodding on.
