Streep Book Club!

H'okay, so here's the idea: a book club + Meryl Streep = a community of Merylphiles reading books that Meryl Streep movies are based on. The idea has arisen out of a crisis that after graduation this May I won't be able to have discussions about books anymore but what can I really motivate myself to read in a timely fashion if I don't have to read for class? How can I combine this idea with my obsession with deep love for Meryl Streep? Well, from there, everything sort of fell into place.

  1. Don't talk about Meryl Book Club. Just kidding, there is no Palahniuk in her repertoire, so until further notice it is absolutely OKAY to talk about Meryl Club. I encourage it actually, let's get enough people to get a good conversation going

  2. NO FLAMING. We're all adults, right? Or at least know how to act like one...

  3. Let's say no excessive swearing. I don't think any of the books that I have in mind get particularly raunchy so I'm not going to put an age warning, but let's not break the TOS, yes? ;)

  4. YOU ARE NOT BEING GRADED. I'm not very good at meeting reading deadlines myself so I'm going to try to run this community in a very open style way. See the first Devil Wears Prada post for more details about how it's all going to work!

  5. Have fun. This is a rule that I adamantly insist upon.

  6. If you have any questions please visit the FAQ page and if your question isn't answered there please go to the comment/questions/criticisms page. If you want to ask a more private question feel free to PM me.

The book list is open to discussion. Follow this link right here if you'd like to talk to me about my choices, dates, etc.
