    You can use the kindle app on your phone or if you have a tablet- You just need an amazon account.

    Ok downloaded it and ready to go! I think it's the perfect time for this book club because I'm rly trying not to overthink and dwell on stressful life things. So trying to channel my energy and time into other pursuits that are productive will be good I think.

    Heyy so longtime occasional poster here. Can I join in? I really need to get back into reading more and this sounds great, and I think it'll help get me motivated.

    Idk but I already started a few pages and my first thought was "I'm not smart enough to read this book lol." Granted it started coming together eventually. But apparently I am rusty. Im just rly bad with names so I always struggle at the beginning of books/shows/movies trying to figure out who everyone is

    If it makes you feel better, I also struggled the first 20 or so pages because it's written in such a shifty way so that you're never quite sure which timeline or location you're in, or even which character is "narrating" the action so to speak. I think it's an interesting way to depict how your brain is scrambled when you've had a traumatic life.

    Because I'm an idiot gremlin, I had to leave my phone in a separate room so I could sit and focus JUST on reading without getting distracted.

    I READ THE BOOK

    Resurrecting this thread to say I enjoyed the book. Took me a while to get into it because it doesn't rly like... Introduce the characters? And I'm already bad at keeping names straight with any media. You sort of just get thrown into the characters and different point of views and then it all ties together the more you read. I thought it was a great and devastating take on slavery, trauma, grief, love, and resiliency. I had never read any of her works but had mostly heard about the bluest eye before reading this one, so I may read that next when I revisit her stuff.
     
  15. I've read most of the first chapter, I basically never read anymore so I really have to force myself to do it, gotta get back to this one

    I think book clubs like this can be hard to organize and have everyone on the same timeline. It's only the second book I've read this year lol. but it got me on a groove cause I've read another book since!
