As one of those who couldn't stand the book and couldn't finish it, I will say that Sock is an excellent example as to why I LOVE being in book clubs. I would have never picked up Sock had I not been in that book club. Although I didn't finish it, the experience of reading a different writing style by an author with such extreme viewpoints was good for me.


If you need socks for sock monkeys, go to www.socksbypost.co.uk buy one sock get one free (snigger) KP


Books? What are those? I loathed reading growing up, then I met my wife the english major and I started reading. Then came the kids, haven't read much since then, but would love to if I had the time.


Cagey - Ahh, literature as cod liver oil!

Keith - If I didn't know you, I'd think you were comment spamming. ;)

Huts - I hope you manage to find a little more time for reading in the coming year.


I think that when not everyone loves the book, book club discussions are sometimes way better and more interesting. At least ours seems to be. We just read "The Alchemist" and while everyone liked it, the discussion was really slow and quiet. Mainly because the thoughts everyone had were pretty personal, I believe. It's a book that really makes you think about your life.


Good for you for throwing in something provocative! I bought and began Sock myself, but got distracted by a different book. You've reminded me, and so I'll have to go back to it.

I recently read Cloudstreet because someone suggested it for our hardly-existing book club. The only other person, besides myself, who actually read it, hated it. I thought it was brilliant.
