An online book club to whet the highbrow appetite

Literati, rejoice! The Paris Review and NYRB Classics are teaming up to enlighten the masses. You can get a year's membership, which includes 12 of the imprint's "ignored or forgotten works ... by writers renowned and obscure" and 4 issues of The Paris Review, for a WAY reduced price. October's selection was Ge Fei's The Invisibility Cloak, November's will be... ? Sign up here to join in the discussion in January. (Or gift a subscription. The holiday season is upon us.)

BUT: If you're hesitant to pony up the cash (as I certainly am!), you'll be happy to hear that SLPL has its own robust selection of NYRB Classics. And you can sign up for the newsletter (just be sure to check the NYRB Classics box) and follow The Daily to keep abreast of the month's read. DIY for free, guys, thanks to the library!

OR: SLPL has its own online book club on Goodreads, if the whole online thing is what piques your interest. There you can discuss whatever you're reading, NYRB Classic or otherwise. (Might I suggest jumping in with a biography of The Paris Review founding editor George Plimpton? We've got a couple to choose from: George, Being George and The Man in the Flying Lawn Chair and Other Excursions and Observations.)
