At Tuesday's meeting  we selected Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston 
(June),  The book thief by Markus Zusak (July), Places left  unfinished at the 
beginning of time by John Phillip Santos  (August).  For September we actually 
selected an author rather than a  specific book.  The author is Amulya Malladi 
who has written three books,  Serving crazy with curry, A breath of fresh air, 
and  The mango season.  We can read any or all of the  books.  Amulya Malladi 
is willing to call book groups discussing her books  for a phone discussion in 
real time so we will try to set that up for the  September meeting. 
We need hosts for  July, August, and September. 
I just finished The  book thief and loved it.  Yes, it's about the Holocaust. 
 Yes, it's  narrated by Death.  Yes, people die.  But, Death is an excellent  
narrator.  I think Death's ironic, detached tone helps the reader put some  
distance between the events and the emotions so that you can appreciate the  
courage and sorrow without being devastated.  It's not a tearjerker.   
Happy  reading!
