Guys I’m stuck half way! Should I stop reading now? 🙏 asking for a friend
Marie Salomé
Oops 😬 I too have 40 or 50 pages left to read and keep postponing my reading session
Hannah Ray
Calling for next June book club suggestions please! Shall we make it a fiction?
Eleni Stefanou
Possible contender: Rachel Cusk’s Outline
Marie Salomé
Another contender 📖 (quite short because we are already midway into June)
Eleni Stefanou
I’m up for Marie’s suggestion
Hannah Ray
Great suggestion and there is a shorted version (the original essay) in the New Yorker too. Let’s do it!
Hannah Ray
Any reccos for a good non-fiction business read too?
Eleni Stefanou
@hannah Six Thinking Hats is meant to be game changing
Hannah Ray
Thanks @elenistefanou! Also looking to start Making Babies by Anne Enright and Steering the Craft by Ursula K Le Guin. Will let u know how I get on!
Marie Salomé
Loved how this short books stays with you longer than just the time you spend reading it. It makes you think of how you would react to the passing of a parent and it made me reflect on grief and how we can try but fail to soothe someone mourning.

did anyone explore the audio version?
Marie Salomé
@dritchiee you make me want to listen to the audio version now! I’ve loved reading the book but I am sure her voice might bring so much emotion to the text.
