The Cephalopod Coffeehouse: September Blog List


Greetings to all!  I hope you'll join us for the next installment of the Cephalopod Coffeehouse, an online gathering of bloggers who love books.  The next meeting is set for Friday, September 27th.  If you're interested, please sign on to the link list at the end of this post.

The idea is simple: on the last Friday of each month, post about the best book you've finished over the past month while visiting other bloggers doing the same.  In this way, we'll all have the opportunity to share our thoughts with other enthusiastic readers.  Please join us:

  1. Look for Fahrenheit 451 for September. Maybe, The Spirit Well. And, hopefully, an indie thing.

    1. Cool! I love Fahrenheit 451 - haven't read it since high school.

    2. Me, either. That's why I'm reading it again.

    3. I caught the very end of the movie not long ago. I'd forgotten the whole deal with people memorizing classic books in order to recite them for future generations.

    4. Evidently, I'd forgotten that, too. One of the kids brought it up in my creative writing class, yesterday.

    5. Until recently, it was the only Bradbury I'd read. I tackled Martian Chronicles not too long ago. I feel like someone did that one for the Coffeehouse, too.

    6. I read a lot of Bradbury when I was younger, maybe most of it, but I haven't read any of it in years. I've had my son reading some of it, recently, like Fahrenheit, and, then, with his death, I decided I wanted to re-visit some of his stuff. I'd really forgotten just how good Fahrenheit is. "She had a face like a clock..."

    7. I was drawn more to Vonnegut and Asimov, but I liked Bradbury, too. The Toynbee Convector is on my to-read stack at the moment.

      Delete
    8. Oh, I've read a lot of Asimov, too. Some Vonnegut (I've always meant to get to more and just haven't done it, yet) and a lot of Wells.

    9. How about Douglas Adams? He was probably my favorite of the whole bunch.

    10. Yeah, I love Hitchhiker's. I have Dirk Gently around somewhere, but I haven't ever read them.

      Delete
    11. I got through all 5 Hitchhiker books and the first Dirk Gently. That story didn't grab me in quite the same way. As far as I'm concerned, the first Hitchhiker is the funniest book ever written.

    12. I'm not sure I would say it's -the- funniest, but it's definitely awesome.

    1. Thank you. I have to admit this comment feels a bit spammy. If I have misjudged, I apologize. If you are genuinely interested in joining the Coffeehouse, you'll need to re-enter your link. The one you submitted did not take.

      Best regards,
      A Squid

  4. Thanks so much for the invitation! I'd love to start participating in October since I have a book release on 9-24 and that week will be a bit crazy. When will you post sign-ups for October?

      Good luck with the book release!
