May’s book club read is Moby Dick. When I saw Moby Dick on the roster, I sort of groaned. I haven’t read it before but it’s reputation proceeds it. I braced myself for boredom once I passed the first sentence: Call me Ismael.

Though I’m only 40 pages in, I want to break the stereotype. So far Moby Dick is witty and engaging. While I’m still suggesting we change our schedule to allow two months for this novel, I don’t dread reading it.
