APW Book Club meet-up. The Boston group was meeting in a nearby town at 1pm, as groups all over the world (well, the Western, First World bits anyhow) were meeting in their respective towns at the same time. It's a truly awesome thing, both for the participants, the observers, and the person behind it all, Meg at APW.
And this time, I was going to be a participant! I bought the book (How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran) a couple of months ago, read it all in a weekend, and love it! I had plans to bring stinky cheese and crackers! Alas, this morning I both chickened out on going, just a little bit, and realized I had work that needed doing in Portsmouth.
BUT. The book is truly amazing and you should read it. Male, female, whatever - it's brilliant and funny and heartwarming and provocative. Go read it now. And since I didn't get to go to the book club meet-up, come back and tell me what you think.
*Side note: I really love how having spent time in Scotland over the last decade has infused my speech with the occasional Briticism. :)
