The upcoming B&B book event: Remembering KV

For those of you who haven't been paying attention, the powers that be (let me give you a hint--I'm not one of them) have now decided to do an eclectic Vonnegut book event: each blogger (who wants to participate) should read one--any--Vonnegut book and post on it, during the weekend on April 28th-29th. Don't worry if that seems too close to now: any Vonnegut novel will only take you a few hours to read at most. MT and I are planning on reading the new book, but for those of you who have never read a Vonnegut, I recommend "Slaughterhouse 5," "Cat's Cradle," or "Mother Night." If you feel like it, post on the blog which Vonnegut you are planning to read.

I have read Slaughterhouse Five, Mother Night, and Breakfast of Champions, all *excellent*!

I also read the new book, which is good and very short. I will be reading Cat's Cradle for the book event, though I also want to read Palm Sunday.

I just happen to be reading Cat's Cradle now as well! I can't promise to be done in a week due to my studies. But I'll try.

I started reading it out of the blue the day before KV died. A strange coincidence.
