Catherine's book club had another meeting, and so she's got another book to talk about, in this case The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin. She sets up some of the book's storylines and themes for us -- but don't worry, no spoilers -- and gives it a thumbs-up as a novel tailor-made for book clubs. (Terri's dog, on the other hand, is clearly disturbed by the lack of canines in the narrative.) Next up for Catherine's club and our podcast is Shanghai Girls by Lisa See, so read along if you want to know what she's talking about in a month or so. And watch So You Think You Can Dance if you want to know what we're talking about when we chat about the show every week. Our audition fatigue continued with this last week of try-outs from New York City, and despite some excellent hip-hopping and tapping and duo dancing, we wished a couple of non-contenders could have been allowed to peacefully fail without all the build-up and the, you know, chasing of the shamed out into the snow. We're curious to see where the show goes from here with its two extremely large teams and how cruel the winnowing to a manageable number is going to be. Join us every Tuesday for our entertainment talk, and if you're reading this somewhere without hyperlinks, come to for the full recap experience.
