Many of you asked if we could announce the ABM Book Club selection a little bit earlier in the month, so everyone could order a hard copy or put the book on hold at their local library. Great suggestion! Hopefully this is is early enough, but I can always announce a little earlier next month.
In April, I'm excited to read Longbourn by Jo Baker with you. I got excited about this book when I read that the book revolves around the fictional lives of Elizabeth Bennet's servants. Yes, you read that right, Elizabeth Bennet. As in, you know, Pride and Prejudice. I don't know if I am among any Jane Austen fans here, but I just had to look into this book. I sort of love reading books set in this era and society. It's very different from any of our ABM Book Club selections so far, and, well, variety is the spice of life, no? So get your copy before the end of the month.
Also we will be discussing The Lowland on Monday, March 31st, so hurry up and finish reading if you haven't already. xo. Emma
