September meeting

Update: Today, we are changing stories. Today’s (September 25th) meeting, we will finish reading Kipling’s “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” story, then read the first few pages of “Reading Lolita in Tehran” with Japanese translation.

(Original post:)

Dear Readers,

Thanks very much for participating today. We still haven’t quite finished Kipling’s “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” story (we read up to the 2nd paragraph on page 13; contact me if you want a copy of the text). We’ll finish next time.

Next meeting will be September 11th  25th.

What shall we read next? “Pygmalion” by British author George Bernard Shaw seemed to be a popular choice. It is available online for free from the Gutenberg project here: http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3825

Another suggestion (which I made a long time ago) was “Reading Lolita in Tehran” because it’s written by a woman and because it’s about a reading group like ours, but in post-revolutionary Iran, based on the author’s own experiences.

or you can buy the Kindle version at half the price

There is, I discovered today, a Japanese translation available:
It’s a little expensive but there are some cheap second-hand ones available (see the link above).
