Oh good, there is an "aha!" moment. At the moment I'm just going with the flow and enjoying it more than I was expecting to do.

Just finished The Satanic Verses and can hardly wait for the discussion. Although I didn't vote for it, I'm glad it won. It was worth the initial struggle to get into the book. I've been thinking about the nature of good and evil all morning.
Plus I read (finally) Lady Chatterley's Lover and will read No Orchids for Miss Blandish before the month is out. The MR book club has been invaluable for encouraging me to read books I would otherwise have passed over.
