A Modest Proposal

Here's an idea: Every now and then, we could all read the same book for shits and giggles. Then we could have an open thread to discuss it, like a real book club or some shit. I thought we could all start with Lolita, since a number of Fifty Bookers have expressed desire in reading that. Plus, you know--pedophilia.

What do you think?

I'm in for shits and giggles.

I have always said that I do not get to shit/giggle enough. I'm in.
Was it originally written in English or Russian? I am just wondering if we should all try to get the same edition.

It was written in English.

Carlton said...

I'm so stupid!

Alyson said...

I think that's because you're a boy, Carlton.

Kelly said...

Count me in. Sounds like an entertaining/disturbing book that may cause both shits and giggles.

Christopher said...

Has any of us read it?

Nihil Novum said...

I read most of it last year, but then it got lost. I'll restart.

Carlton said...

When are we starting?

Christopher said...

I've already started. I don't think it matters when you read it, as long as we all do. Alyson can't read it until I'm finished, since we're using the same copy (and maybe Nathan, too).

Carlton said...

Gotcha.

Nathan said...

I'm disappointed this post was not about eating babies.

I'm down (for both).
