The Book Club

In my ideal world, where time is endless, I have always wanted to start a book club. But since sometimes to read one book takes me months to finish, we would have gatherings every 6 months- so maybe I will just keep on reading books on my own.
Most of the books I read, I read with my ears, since I listen to them through my Ipod. For me it is a perfect way to read books and give my eyes the chance to rest or to do something else while reading. But I always keep some books for the bath tub.

My favourite author of the last year(s) is Paul Auster. I have read most of his books, and there stories grab me every time. I'm even reading them a second time for the moment. Maybe I am just addicted to his voice (as he reads his own stories)
 Another interesting book I have read lately is
1Q84. It took me a few months of listening, since it was a book of 24 hours.
"A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 —“Q is for ‘question mark.’ A world that bears a question.”(Source: Goodreads)

Another author I always enjoy reading when I am in a amateur philosopher mood is Alain De Botton. Now he has some interesting books out in his 'School of Life' series. Currently I am reading this one. The last book I read by him was 'religion for atheists'. I learnt so much.
 And how can I do a book post without including this one:
 I read the first 50 pages and I thought, hmm interesting..., and then I went further and I thought: Seriously? That's how you lost your virginity? I mean, seriously? Hmm, yeah right!
 Am I right, Girls?
I stopped reading around page 200 - I thought it became quite boring after a while, it felt a bit like the stupid novels you find at the 1 dollar store or 'De Zeeman' (for the Belgians).
Maybe I should have given it another chance, but for some reason, I just put it back on the shelf of my bookcase.
Am I the only one? 
Maybe I am, since it has been on Number 1 of the best selling fiction books for months now.
But anyway, I don't need Christian Grey :)
