DITHOT and I just want to give you a heads up that you have an extra 2 weeks to read A Transatlantic Love Affair.

Real life has intervened in our Noodlemantra world and necessitated that we begin our tidbits for A Transatlantic Love Affair in mid September. We will begin our discussion of the letters of Simone de Beauvoir to Nelson Algren on October 11.

We hope that you are enjoying the book and that you will check in on our tidbits beginning September 13. I think that this will be an interesting discussion.

See you then.

Can't wait. Hopefully the intervening "real life" is a quick trip to France and Chicago, just to get the feel of the book... :biggrin:

Glad to have the extra time to finish as I am only a little over half way through. I think this will be another case of wishing I had the tidbits first and read the book second. Totally agree this will be a great discussion! :bounce:

At the rate I’m going I will have the tidbits first and the book second. I tossed the book on my ”to read” stack and have not touched it since.

The letters are fun to read.
I'm now :noodlemantra:30 pages each day so I will finish in time for the tidbits.

After a long absence from the Zone, I decided to take on this book. I'm needing more time too, so glad the tidbits are posponed. However I am awaiting them.
Thank you for taking the time to do the research!
Lady Jill :wave:

I am glad this delay is welcome.

Welcome back, Lady Jill! :bigwave:

Buster, oh how I wish I was in France working on my research for this book.

And just a heads up that there will be a couple of pre-tidbits….but beware of spoilers. I will preface each one with the page number to which you should have read so that it is not a spoiler. Keep a sharp eye for these teasers.

Thanks Liz, the Zone is a great distraction to a very busy life. I love it!
Be looking for your teaser tidbits.
Lady Jill :ok:
