The House of Spirits ...

MATT: I'm excited ... oh, I'm excited.

Paranormal powers ... fulfilled promises of legitimate family life ... three generations and a remarkable house.

This oughta be amazing!

Though the participants in the poll for our next book were (shall we say) minimal, we have nevertheless achieved a critical mass that puts Isabel Allende's The House of Spirits on top of the heap. Magic realism, here we come!

Because it is now Dec. 22 (SO CLOSE TO CHRISTMAS!!!), let's plan on having this one read by the end of January. About mid-January, I will also put up a new poll on what book we should read for February-March.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all as well!

SHORT STORY RECOMMENDATION: If you have time and are looking for a rather interesting (and rather uncanny) piece of literature, may I recommend House Taken Over by Julio Cortázar.
