First Book

I ate lunch with Kacy, Emily, Lisa, and Carrie on Tuesday, and we agreed that the first official book of the Blook Blub will be The History of Love by Nicole Krauss.

Don't be fooled if you find this book labeled as a "romance." It IS NOT a romance, and only an ignorant librarian who hasn't read it would put it next to those bodice-ripping love stories. So, do not fear. You'll be glad you read it. If you already HAVE read it, please participate anyway.
It will be interesting to see how Blook Blub responds to The History of Love vs. how my fancy book club will respond. Not that Blook Blub isn't fancy, but I like to think we are a little more down to earth. Please start reading it and I will announce the date of discussion soon.

Our library system had the book listed under fiction and non-fiction.
