Posts Tagged ‘Book Club’

Today is April 1st. Day One of my Under the Yoke challenge and book club in celebration of the April Uprising in Bulgaria (if celebration is actually the right word).

Based on my last post, Me & Under the Yoke, the current members seem to be me, my MoM, Andreytcho and Martin.  We’re going to have a blast.

It’s not too late to join in or to simply read along with us in anonymity. I’m not the boss of you, you can pick. But, I do believe that reading is good for you.  It’s like coffee or dinner–both are more fun when you have someone to talk to and share the experience with. .

What do you need? Well, the ability to read, a copy of the book and a little determination. A glass of wine and some snacks wouldn’t hurt either and seeing as this is a virtual book-club you wont have to share these with anyone, unless you want to.

This said, I understand that this isn’t for everyone.  Hell, living in Bulgaria isn’t for everyone and neither is rakiya but I am still giving it a try. So I think that you should too but that’s me.  My little sister took one look at the book and thought: it’s too long and the names are too hard to remember. She’s apparently not going to join us. I mean unless I can guilt her into it but she’s pretty stubborn.

Anyhow, you should know you’ve got options.  It’s in the public domain. You can download it and read it in English on your computer, kindle or even PDF. You don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home in order to read this book.  Yeah it doesn’t really get much better than that.  I can only assume based on Andreytcho’s comment that you can also get a copy in Bulgarian as well.  I just can’t help you with that you’ll have to look for this on your own.

So now what? (more…)
