The Boy in the Striped Pajamas – Next Book Club

Thank you to everyone who joined us today to talk about How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff!  We’ll be meeting again on Friday, June 28th at 2pm PST to discuss The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.

Someone asked me if anyone can join.  Absolutely.

I’ve really enjoyed the chats so far.  Today’s seemed an especially good one.  I think part of what made it so interesting was the wide variety of opinions, especially about Meg Rosoff’s writing style in How I Live Now.  We had ratings from 2 to 5 stars.  If you missed Book Club this week and would like to check out what we talked about, awesome adiek84 was able to do a chat transcript that you can read here.

We will continue to use the ustream chat room, which seems to be working well:  http://www.ustream.tv/channel/anna-shinoda-s-book-club

  1. Hi Anna. I’m happy that the book club this giving such good results! It was a great idea! Now, I feel a little saddened because not I’ll finish reading for the Friday … So I wanted to ask you … Can I comment here what I think about the book when I finish it?. I have read a part, and it’s very interesting. Thanks Anna.

  2. I am sorry I missed the chat on “How I Live Now”. My daughter’s first summer fastpitch softball tournament began that day. But am excited about the date for next chat. It is her only weekend off in June and July. My son read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas when he was in 7th grade and then again as a freshman in in his English class….one of his favorite novels. Maybe I will try to get him to join the chat!!!!!
