YW Book Club: House of Leaves

Hey guys!

Back in late July I did a post about us all reading House of Leaves together. And we’re going to start on September 1! If you don’t have it yet, buy it from Amazon Prime and it’ll totally arrive at your house in time. You can’t get it as an ebook really because it’s not a normal novel, it’s like… well, it’s hard to explain. Here’s a description I found:

The format and structure of the novel is unconventional, with unusual page layout and style, making it a prime example of ergodic literature. It contains copious footnotes, many of which contain footnotes themselves, including references to fictional books, films or articles.[1] Some pages contain only a few words or lines of text, arranged in strange ways to mirror the events in the story, often creating both anagoraphobic and a claustrophobic effect. The novel is also distinctive for its multiple narrators, who interact with each other throughout the story in elaborate and disorienting ways.

While some have attempted to describe the book as a horror story, many readers, as well as the author, would define the book as a love story. Danielewski expands on this point in an interview: “I had one woman come up to me in a bookstore and say, ‘You know, everyone told me it was a horror book, but when I finished it, I realized that it was a love story.’ And she’s absolutely right.

This week I’ll do another post, tagged #ywbookclub, about the reading schedule and how we’ll facilitate a Tumblr based discussion as we go.

Yay I’m excited!!!

To everyone who’s reading this with me, let’s start over the weekend! Does the first 150 pages sound manageable by Monday night? Then we’ll post about it next week with #ywbookclub.

I’ll release a complete reading schedule early next week but the long weekend is a good time to get started. Happy reading!

HA okay 150 pages was ambitious, I only got through like 30. Word on the street is that this book takes a reeeeally long time to read.

We could aim for about 50 pages per week, but it’ll take until Christmas to read! Maybe not the best first book for YW Book Club. Would anyone be super disappointed if we didn’t read this book? Was anyone even really planning on reading it with me haha?

Yes but that gif can be taken two ways: about the person in the gif, or perhaps the person they are looking at

I thought sexy pizza was the best Halloween costume this year, but I think Edgar Allen Ho may have just changed the game.

I support this. Yes.

I want to say “Yes!”, but like all reboots it will probably be terrible.

All female Ghostbusters? SIGN ME UP

do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general

BUT YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING.

It’s in words

I often end up just flailing and throwing an internal tantrum in these cases.

I end up watching old reality TV because I don’t have to focus on it
