Books Anonymous

notjenschiz & rizwank put together a book group, hosted at swmartin's. Everyone talked about what they were reading, and we brought books to swap. And Scott made cherry ice cream (yay!).

There was plenty of book-talk and subsequent conversation. Almost too much, as it turned out, my internal timer was telling me that Becca was going to eat without me if I didn't get back soon, so I left as things were winding down.

It was interesting to see the different kinds of books everyone brought to the table, so to speak. Prime has a penchant for, what-to-call-them, scientific self-help books. A penchant shared by Riz, who perhaps adds a more economic-oriented twist. Megan was more on the food/health side of self-help with her current reading. Colleenky is a budding policy wonkette, still crushing (as are we all) on Obama. The rest of us leaned toward fiction.

Book Swap Record:

I have Riz's copy of Ivars Peterson's Jungles of Randomness (to be returned)
I have Prime's copy of something or other (no return necessary)

My Bebop manga may have been borrowed by Riz? (to be returned)
My The Discoverers is in the hands of Scott (to be returned)
My Hiding the Elephant is in the hands of Morgan (to be returned)
