Ender's Game

Thanks to those who made it to the Emma/Clueless chat yesterday. We had a lot of fun comparing/contrasting the early 19th century British text with the late 20th century teen film.

Next up in our queue is Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.

The book is about 350 pages of young adult text, so it will read much faster than the lovely, verbose, Jane Austen.

If we want time to wrap up the year with a Christmas themed text, for example A Christmas Carol, it is important that we get this book wrapped up in the month of November. This means just about three weeks to read the book and watch the movie (which is now in wide release at theaters nationwide).

This will have to be a single book/movie chat, following our viewing the movie independently at the theatre.

When are we available this month to chat? The last weekend of November is Thanksgiving, so that might be tricky planning, but I know I will be in town and easily available to squeeze in a 1-1.5 hour chat.


  1. Sorry to have missed the last chat! The universe was conspiring against me.

    I should be relatively free on November 17, 23, 24, 29, 30, or December 1st...

  2. I am pretty much entirely free the 29th, 30th, and 1st. :)

  3. Let's try for 29, 30 or 1.

    Although I do think having this on the 24 would be an awesome half-birthday gift to me. Right, Susan?
