Sorry it’s been really quiet lately. I know, I know, you’re tired of our excuses. But we legitimately are pretty busy. Scatty has exams, Isis has college stuff to work on, and I picked up extra shifts at work. Overall, none of us have been able to do anything other than “work” for the past few weeks/last month. To make it all up to you, I’ve opened up a discussion page here and I might just host a small giveaway/contest if all of you behave like the good little bookworms I know you are.
The votes are in and the book we’re reading for May is The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown!
“Famed Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon answers an unexpected summons to appear at the U.S. Capitol Building. His planned lecture is interrupted when a disturbing object—artfully encoded with five symbols—is discovered in the building. Langdon recognizes in the find an ancient invitation into a lost world of esoteric, potentially dangerous wisdom. When his mentor Peter Solomon—a longstanding Mason and beloved philanthropist—is kidnapped, Langdon realizes that the only way to save Solomon is to accept the mystical invitation and plunge headlong into a clandestine world of Masonic secrets, hidden history, and one inconceivable truth . . . all under the watchful eye of Dan Brown’s most terrifying villain to date. Set within the hidden chambers, tunnels, and temples of Washington, D.C., The Lost Symbol is an intelligent, lightning-paced story with surprises at every turn–Brown’s most exciting novel yet.” ~from Goodreads.com
