Just for folks looking to purchase or borrow, it’s “Remarkably Bright Creatures” though I’m sure they’re incredibly bright as well. :slight_smile:

Works for me, never read a book narrated by an octopus before. Let’s do it!

Local bookstore didn’t anticipate it coming in until this week at the earliest. Came in last friday. Already a few chapters in and wow boy, an octopus narrative is phenomenal. Looking forward to this one.

also good thing we waited a few days to decide because when I checked last week it was only in hardcopy and now it’s in paperback!

Double check that. I also wanted to paperback but I think it’s released early April, so might be a little wait for the paperback to arrive.

It says delivery tomorrow so we’ll monitor!

Hey all, new here. Ive been lookin for a book club and heard so much about this one on the various NLU pods. Is there anywhere I need to sign up? Or do I just order Remarkably Bright and join the ensuing discussion? Excited to start. Thanks guys!

yes! That’s the approach exactly :smiley:

We’ll settle on a date (Wednesdays are our go-to day of the week) about ~6 weeks out and then set up a zoom for that day. Folks just pop in and we have a chat. Usually get a crew around 6-8 or so. Been fortunate to date that we’ve always managed a good convo!

Looking forward to it! The more the merrier quite literally!

Finished the book while IU got crushed last night. Such a great story. If you’re on the fence about reading it, do it.
