For May’s meeting, we’ll be reading Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. In Snow Crash, Hiro Protagonist and Y.T. (Yours Truly) investigate a new pseudo-narcotic called Snow Crash, which people experience both in real life and in the Metaverse.

Join us for discussion of our current book as well as helping decide our next selection.

This is what you missed at our last bookclub meeting:

We read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. In a postapocalyptic world, two children are sent to The Capitol from each territory as a tribute—their fate: a televised fight to the death. We discussed both book and movie, both of which received general approval, though the book suffered from a main character who might be considered a bit too self-absorbed, while the movie suffered from a lack of first-person narration and fluidity of narrative. But both were made up for by a non-stereotypical strong female protagonist.

When: Monday, May 14, 2011 – 6:30pm-8:00pm

Where: Filter, 1373-75 N Milwaukee Ave Chicago, IL

    Thanks for revealing your ideas with this blog. Furthermore, a myth regarding the banking companies intentions whenever talking about home foreclosure is that the loan company will not have my repayments. There is a fair bit of time that this bank will require payments every now and then. If you are too deep within the hole, they should commonly desire that you pay the actual payment 100 %. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of payments at all. In case you and the loan company can be capable to work anything out, the foreclosure course of action may stop. However, if you continue to pass up payments within the new program, the property foreclosures process can pick up from where it was left off.
