Those of you who follow me here on Bookish Temptations since when I first started posting, already know that I have a soft spot for classic novels. In fact, some of the shelves on my library are dedicated to them.
Not all classics are the same, though, that’s for sure. It’s one thing when you read Jane Austen or the Bronte sisters, and quite another when you read, for example, Joseph Conrad or James Joyce (ugh!! Definitely not one of my favorites). Some of the classic novels I’ve read were very, very hard to get into, some were easier, but all in all I’ve always believed that classics in general can give us a lot in terms of insight, and they provide a lot of food for thought to ponder upon.
The posts will all remain in our archives, so if at anytime you want to add your thoughts, or ask us a question regarding ours, either on a topic that we covered or even one we didn’t …feel free to leave them in the comments.
At the end of this discussion you’ll find the Q and A with SR…
I have to share something that’s kind of funny even though both Elena and I felt like two dorks when it was discovered. Both of us made a goof with one of the questions we originally posted. One referred to a scene from chapter 20…which is from last week, and then one went into something that happens in chapter 34…which isn’t til next week. So…those two q’s have been removed…go ahead…you can laugh…we did 🙂
Now go on and see how we answered the questions that were left…
Right off the bat Elena and I want to thank all of you that have joined in our discussions of Gabriel’s Rapture by Sylvain Reynard (Geez you guys… I just caught myself writing @sylvainreynard )
It’s nice talking to others that share our love of this book, and to read other people’s perspectives don’t you think? I just want to remind everyone that it’s perfectly acceptable to join in at any time, the more the merrier. Also, please don’t feel as though you have to answer/discuss every question unless you want to. If you feel strongly about just one or two then talk to us about those.
We’re having a great time, and hope y’all are as well 🙂
We’ve just concluded our first week of the BT book club, and Elena and I have had an absolute blast. We hope you’re having as much fun as we are. We loved the discussion post we did, and then reading and responding to all of you who have joined in. Thanks guys! We enjoy talking about Gabriel’s Rapture by Sylvain Reynardwith y’all, and look forward to the coming weeks as we read farther.

A huge thank you and collar tug worthy hugs to SR for participating. It’s incredibly fantastic, and super cool when your favorite author takes the time to answer reader questions!
Let’s check out this next week’s schedule for the book club…
Elena and I want to welcome you to the very first BT Book Club discussion…Hello everybody…boy…you’re all looking really good today I must say. *Scans the crowd* Huh…I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many high heels…and argyle choices…socks, skirts, handbags, umbrellas, scarves…Whoa! You guys rock.
