The "Darling, but..." Book Club

The Basics

The "Darling, but..." Book Club has only two  members: Mr. Nomadreader (my beloved spouse) and me. Each month, we each pick one book, so together we'll read two books each month. We pick books we haven't read. Each year in our birthday month (August for me and September for Mr. Nomadreader), we're allowed to pick a book we've read before. Each month, we'll be posting our thoughts in some form. We may play around with joint reviews, interviews about the book, and guest posts about our shared reading. I'll also be reviewing all of the titles in my typical style. Neither of us is allowed to pick Infinite Jest. If we do, it counts as two months. The rule will be similarly amended for books that are really long or otherwise daunting.
