I'm impressed that you have a book club that reads "Middlemarch".

Thank you!
Its a quarterly club that's all about reading the big classics, we did Moby Dick in April, and Tale of Genji will be October - definitely starting that one early!

How did you find Moby Dick? I hear it can be a real chore, but others love it.

It was a chore to read - but in the end I felt it was worth it. All the digressions and essays built up to...something. Ahab would chew the scenery and scare the bejeezus out of everyone on deck and then the narrative would talk about the color white for awhile to calm us down. I liked it, but its not required reading.

I think I must be the only person who found Middlemarch incredibly dull.
