These are the books the group has been reading and that we discussed in the last Meetup. The were varied, interesting, and great fodder for the thought provoking discussion we shared. It was great meeting with all of you. Please feel free to add any comments to the books on the Indigocafe.com site.

Thanks to everyone that made it to the Meetup! And to all those who couldn't come I hope we will see you next time! We will meet at an Independent Bookstore here in NYC.

and finally, Books Jenn Discussed:

Interfictions: An Anthology of Interstitial Writing edited by Delia Sherman and Theodora Goss

-- A collection speculative fiction stories. I'm taking my time reading it. It's like a box of chocolates, I have no idea what the next story will bring. I like it so far.

All That is Gone: Stories by Pramoedya Ananta Toer

-- A beautiful collection of short stories about life in Indonesia by an author that is known the world over, just not so well in the US

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

-- A tale of the survival of a father and his young son in a post apocalyptic world. A really great read

Villette by Charlotte Bronte

-- the last book written by Charlotte Bronte, who was in mourning from the loss of all her sisters and brother. I'm still reading it but it does come across as a pre-feminist story about making it in this world as an independent woman.
