Pennington’s New Book Club

Have you thought about what your New Year’s resolution is going to be for 2013? How about finally reading that book that’s just gathering dust on the night table. If you’re unsure of how you might follow through with the reading, no need to fear, the Too-Busy-for-Books Book Club is here for you. There will be few of the club’s selections that are longer than 50,000 words, so the reading is easy to get through.

Tom Adelman, a Pennington Public Library volunteer, encourages thoughtful discussions of a great mini-novel over cookies and camaraderie. “It’s meant to support folks who–between the chores and the this and the that–just can’t find the time to read,” said Adelman. “I know that, for myself, I really enjoy talking about books but I’m also just like a majorly super-slow reader.”

On January 10th the discussion will be on “ The Uncommon Reader” composed by British humorist Alan Bennet and on February 10th Bohumil Hrabal’s strange Czech classic “Too Loud a Solitude” will follow soon after.

The Too-busy-for-Books book club meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 30 North Main Street in Pennington, New Jersey. The meetings begin at 7:30PM and cookies will be provided, so make sure not to be late. If you’re interested in attending or want more information on the Too-busy-for-Books book club, please contact the Pennington Library at (609) 737-0404 or http://www.penningtonlibrary.org/
