Book Club Is Reading Jennifer Egan

A Visit From The Goon SquadLast week Alli and Dani, this month’s hosts of book club, announced that we will be reading Jennifer Egan’s A Visit From the Goon Squad and I’m really excited about the pick!

I’ve been keeping my eye on this book for a while now. It just recently won the 2010 National Book Critics Circle Award, beating out Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom and Paul Murray’s Skippy Dies, both of which I read and liked. A Visit From the Goon Squad also appeared on The New York Times Best Books of the Year, Publisher’s Weekly’s Top 10 Best Books of 2010, and Time Magazine’s Best Books of the Year, to name a few. Plus, I coincidentally bought the paperback with my Barnes and Noble Groupon just a little while ago so I’m all set.

Now I’ll get to see if the book can live up to all the praise and hype.
