Welcome wannabe bookishes

An epic tale of fathers and sons, of friendship and betrayal, that takes us from the final days of Afghanistan’s monarchy to the atrocities of the present.

Hi bookish clubbers! Welcome!

You are reading the inaugural post of our newly set up book club! For this first post, I would like to share with you guys a link to our first book that we are reading.

Since NLB is launching their READ! Singapore 2006 next week, it is very apt that we support their cause by choosing our first read based on their booklist. They have 2 English books and we (or rather, I) have chosen to read the kite runner by Kaled Hosseni.

Here's the official site of the author, http://www.khaledhosseini.com/

On Thurs, 18th May, we will meet at Syl's work cubicle to discuss our time line. Any objections?

I am excited and I look forward to our next Clubbing session.

Shall we meet during recess time on Thursday, 18th May, to discuss the timeline for our 1st read?

if we take a really long time to read the book, then this really nice blog will be neglected for too long. So we must start on thursday!
