Can you all believe it!!!!!  We are already at the last week here in April.  I am going to post the final wrap up chapters for both Madame Bovary and Snow Flower so that we can finish up discussion on those this week.  I am sorry for the lack of questions for these last two books but I am pretty busy getting ready for baby here and although I am reading the books have not had the energy to think up and post questions.  If any of you want to post questions for discussion please feel free to do that.

 Just a reminder that we will be starting Grapes of Wrath on May 1st it is a long one so be sure to pick up your book soon.grapesofwratjh.jpg

Hey gals. We are still trying to wrap up this last book Madame Bovary. It seems like we have lost some steam so I was wondering if we took the month of April to Wrap up Madame Bovary and have a breather and then start the next selection Snowflower and The Secret Fan May 1st if that would help. Give everyone time to catch up? I know it is a busy time of year with many traveling and school wrapping up. If the majority want to keep moving ahead we can wrap up this last book this week and jump in Monday on the new book. Please comment and let me know.

Madame Bovary: Introduction & Part I February 28, 2007

Hi all.

Welcome to Madame Bovary. Please read the introduction…it is very helpful for understanding the genre of the book and Flaubert’s own literary style.

Hang in there, Parts are long. I will try to divide up the 2nd Part to make it easier to get through.

Have fun! I can’t wait to read the editorials for this one.

Some questions to ponder…

1. Remember “Friends?”  (“a show about nothing?”)  How would you rate Flaubert’s success in writing “a book about nothing?”

2. How does Flaubert retain our interest?
